It’s that time again. If you do Drupal get involved or don’t complain about the way things are done. Yeah, I said it.
A glass half full look at the state of Drupal 8. There has been a lot of hot drama this week about Drupal 8 with a few folks taking a step back from maintaining their core projects.

A good introduction to a handy module.
