Ted, a software engineer in Acquia's Office of the CTO, spoke at DrupalCon Vienna on: Drupal 8 Module Development: Mad with Power It's online now. Check it out.

It's about module development in Drupal 8, which is drastically different from Drupal 7 and previous versions of Drupal. This presentation will introduce the powerful new things you can do easily in Drupal 8. Want to add fields to the node table? No problem. Want to make a condition that can be used in Blocks, Panels, or Rules? Super easy. Need to extend or alter the functionality of field form matters or widgets on your site? No sweat.

The changes in Drupal 8 can appear daunting at first but after you learn a few tricks you'll be surprised by how much you can do with so little code. Ted also took a look at what it means for module development that Drupal 8 is object oriented. You'll see how this lets you leverage the power of an IDE like never before, speeding up development and letting you learn Drupal 8 quickly.
