D8FTW: The Drupal 8 Tour

Larry "Crell" Garfield is taking it to the streets, speaking about the big changes—particularly on those related to PHP—coming with Drupal 8. 

Drupal 8 is expected out this fall sometime (good lord willin' and the crick don't rise, as my mother used to say). It's a big change, but a long-needed one. It's also one that the whole PHP community is looking forward to, if what I've seen at conferences over the last few years is anything to go by.

One of my foci this year has been to help the Drupal and PHP communities get ready for Drupal 8. That's why I've been submitting Drupal 8-centric sessions to conferences across the country and around the world, and why conferences keep asking for them! (Tip for people who want to submit sessions to PHP conferences...)

Without intending to, I have basically kicked off my own Drupal 8 World Tour!

Where has the tour been so far in 2015?

(I was also at Midcamp here in Chicago, but of all places they didn't want a Drupal 8 talk from me!)

If you haven't caught the tour yet, it may be coming to a town near you soon. My travel schedule for the rest of the year is pretty booked as well. Join me at any of the following events (which should be great events in their own right) to get a Crash Course in Drupal 8 or more!

And stay tuned for a few other possibilities in October...

Let's get together and learn about Drupal 8!

Update: Looks like I'll be talking about Functional PHP at Connect JS, not Drupal. However, Drupal 8: The Crash Course and Many Drupals will both appear at ZendCon 2015 in Las Vegas, October 19-22!
