Featured Session: Drupal 8 for Site Builders

Be sure to get back from lunch in time for Kevin Basarab's featured session on Drupal 8. Kevin will go over the new features of Drupal 8 and what you can expect to see in the forthcoming version. We'll look through what new features are in Drupal 8 in relation to site building, how the user experience has been improved and review the status of the Drupal 8 initiatives.

Kevin started out doing web development and SEO for a hotel marketing firm in 2006 before transitioning into full-time Drupal development at the Florida Times-Union newspaper in early 2009. He now works at Mediacurrent as a Senior Drupal Developer, working on many high profile projects within the media industry. Kevin has several Drupal core commits under his belt, as well as maintaining various contrib modules.

Kevin is also a prominent Drupal community coordinator throughout the Southeast. He is a co-organizer of the Jacksonville Drupal Users group, which celebrated its two-year anniversary in February 2014. He is active in providing support via IRC (kbasarab), and volunteering with core mentoring at DrupalCamps including DrupalCamp Atlanta and Florida DrupalCamp as well as DrupalCon Portland.

Outside of Drupal, Kevin is an advocate for the use of Git Flow in development processes and enjoys cycling, beer brewing, bowling and do-it-yourself projects around the house.
