The Long Road to Drupal 9

Drupal core contributor Nat Catchpole discusses the path to Drupal 9. "Drupal 8 is the first major release to rely on significant third-party PHP dependencies. These dependencies, such as Symfony, Twig and Guzzle each have their own release and support cycles. As time goes on, our third party dependencies are gradually going to drop security support for the versions we rely on, and we'll then be faced with either forking the version we use to provide security coverage ourselves, or updating to the newer versions. Because Drupal directly exposes the APIs of some of its dependencies, major updates to dependencies can require API changes in Drupal core, and from there require releasing a new major version."

Decoupled Drupal Hard Problems: Schemas

"The Schemata module is our best approach so far in order to provide schemas for our API resources. Unfortunately, this solution is often not good enough.

How can we improve this situation?" Gets Videos That Make Drupal Easier to Learn
