Ok, so it is probably a little late to jump the wagon now but I finally came around to read up on Drupal 8 and watch some preview videos on YouTube.
I am really exited about the new features in D8 and all the changes they made look like they will make working with Drupal 8 really fun.
With the easy migration of configuration from development to live sites the whole site building experience will be getting way better. And with functionality like a WYSIWYG editor in core the experience for new users will get easier as well.
Now I really look forward to seeing more of D8 and testing it as soon as possible (meaning as soon as I get my xampp install updated).
A release date is not yet named but I don’t care I am really exited right now 😉
