Drupal 8 Beta Dæmons - Unblocking beta1

Code sprint

A beta release of Drupal 8 is currently blocked by a large number of issues (~50) tagged with beta blocker: Beta blocking issue set.

Many of these issues will be addressed by specific sprint teams at Szeged. And some will not have specific champions to usher them through to resolution.

Migrate testing

Code sprint

By the time Szeged comes, the migrate path from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8 should be complete and even the Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 path should either be complete or very close. As I outlined in http://drupal4hu.com/node/390 manual testing is indispensable. People interested in testing should have the following ready:

WF Tools FTW @ Pfizer

Session

Techniques to overwrite code in Drupal

Session

This session is supposed to present various ways to overwrite the default behaviour of the drupal core and some of the well-known contributed modules (like views or panels). The focus will be on Drupal 7, but each case will also have the Drupal 8 correspondent. This will go beyond the things that can be overwrite with alter hooks, and will try to present cases when some specific behavior of a class or small pieces of code have to be overwritten. The attendees should be familiar with Drupal and should have developed at least a few modules before.
