For the past few years, I've been fascinated with credit card-sized budget computers, most especially the one that started the current revolution in hardware hacking, the Raspberry Pi.

With the official release of Drupal 8.0.0 on the horizon, "real world" Drupal 8 stories are becoming more valuable.

Now that the train is actually approaching the station, we all want to know what it will be like to get on. 

Mediacurrent, a leading Drupal design firm, got their Drupal 8 ticket punched early. They partnered with Acquia to launch a Drupal 8 site for Manhattan Associates, a supply chain management software provider, back in August, 2015, when Drupal 8 was in beta. The site has been on the Drupal 8 frontier ever since. 

So what has the experience been like? 

A "real world Drupal 8" series from Mediacurrent and Acquia has been telling some backstories.

In our last post, we looked at why Manhattan Associates was happy with Drupal 8 from a front-end perspective. What sealed the deal for them, though, were the powerful ways they could extend and develop Drupal 8 with improved configuration management, a new Web services API, and easy internationalization.

Not long ago, the only way content was delivered to you from the Web was via Web pages. You typed something into a browser and a server returned a page of information.

I have a theory. My theory is that every single person / organization who is considering building a site on Drupal 8 has created some variation of the exact same spreadsheet. The spreadsheet tracks rows with information, such as which contributed...

Regardless of whether you’re developing a Drupal website or a Drupal module, you have to be aware of how visitors and users will interact with things.

Security is very hard to bolt on to any software or product after it has been built. Building it into the core of the code helps to avoid mistakes, and thus the upcoming release of Drupal 8 tries to build in more security by default, while still being usable for developers and site builders. This list of 10 security improvements is not exhaustive - some are just a line or two to handle an edge case, and there are others I may have overlooked. I've contributed to a number of these improvements, but they reflect overall the community consensus as well as reactions to problems that required security releases for Drupal core or contributed modules in the past. For each point I've tried to include a link or two, such as the Drupal core change record, a documentation page, or a presentation that provides more information. Some of these may also be possible to back-port to Drupal 7, to benefit you even sooner. A "7.x back-port" link indicates that.

For context on why these 10 improvements are important, I looked at past security advisories (SAs) as well as considering the kind of questions we get here at Acquia from companies considering adopting Drupal. In terms of past SAs, cross-site scripting (XSS) is the most commonly found vulnerability in Drupal core and contributed modules and themes.

Not every student learns the same way, so teachers consistently have to find a way to instruct a classroom while also reaching students individually.
