If you came this far you probably liked this video just as much as I did :). You should really consider coming to Portorož in May to attend DC Alpe-Adria. We will have 2 days of great sessions, BoFs and sprints + 2 more day of extended sprints where we're going to focus on D8 and making it rock!
Portorož is also a great destination for children and families so you could bring your significant others and/or families with you and extend Drupal camp into an unforgettable vacation.

Our goal was to define general roadmap for media in next major release of Drupal. Quite a lot of people showed their interest, which once again confirmed importance of this field.
At the end of the day we agreed on several conclusions:
