With Drupal 8 around the corner a lot of people started asking me when will media be ready. It was quite reasonable to expect this to start happening. Unfortunately there is no simple answer to this question. Shortest would be: "It depends.... What exactly do you need?". I know what you're thinking now... "Are you joking with me!?"
On Friday, 2nd Oct 2015, we organized the first virtual media sprint. Four sprinters showed up and worked on D8 media issues.
First a bit of background
At Examiner.com we get an entire day to spend (along with contributions that we do as part of our regular work) on community contributions every other week. We call it "Drupal day" and we love it! It is our way of saying "Thank you!" to the community. We understand that we wouldn't be as successful as we are without incredible efforts that are invested in Drupal and other free software projects we use.
Media team is very active. Purpose of this post is to provide the progress update to the rest of the community that might not be aware of everything that is going on in this field. I am planning to publish this posts on a regular basis. We'll see how it goes :).
