Get ready for the Media workshop at Drupal dev days Seville

Tomorrow I'll be giving a workshop about the Drupal 8 media. As part of it we'll build a "media" site from scratch. We will start with the standard Drupal installation, add modules and configuration and see how far we can get.

If you are planning to attend the workshop and want to be fully productive I'd ask you to take some time and prepare your development environment. We will need Drupal 8 checkout with the following modules:

Possible solution for knowledge sharing in the Drupal 8 media domain

Drupal 8 has very good media handling support. Media team has (and still is) working hard to make Drupal the best CMS in the world when it comes to managing media. We have many modules in the contrib space that solve most of the common use cases in the domain. There is one problem though; there are many of them and some of them are quite complex and abstract. I've noticed that many times users struggle to completely understand what each module is responsible for, which features it comes with and specially how they all together fit into the bigger picture.

Releases of various Drupal 8 media modules

Today we released new versions of many Drupal 8 media modules. This release is specially important for Entity browser and Entity embed modules since we released the last planned alpha version of those modules. If there will be no critical bugs reported in next two weeks we'll release first beta versions of those modules.

We had great and productive time at NYC sprint!

As you may already heard a big free software conference, Open camps happened at the United nations headquarters in New York last week. As part of the NYC Drupal camp, which was just one of the many camps that happened during it, a week-long Drupal 8 media sprint was held.

Media team had great time there and I would like to share our impressions with you.
