December media team met in Berlin and sprinted on Drupal core media improvements for a week. In this post I summarize the results.
He wrote an introduction blog post. I'd like to invite you to read it, say hi and follow his work as it progresses through the summer.
Welcome in the Drupal community Vijay!
More than two years ago I gave a session about the future of media at DrupalCon Prague. The outcome of that session was a planning sprint that happened two days after it. One of the ideas that was born on that sprint was Media entity, storage layer for media-related information built with simplicity and support for remotely hosted media in mind.
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.
It's been a while since my last post and with DrupalCon Amsterdam behind us it seems a good timing for another update.
