The Content Authoring Summit aims to bring together maintainers of various modules key to an awesome authoring experience in Drupal: layouts, media, previews, workflow, in-place editing, etc. and work through architectural / integration issues side-by-side, with whiteboards and healthy debate, with the goal to make the process of making a rich Drupal 8 authoring experience much, much easier than in the past.

Event date and time: 
Friday, October 23, 2015 - 9:00am

Draft agenda:

Lightning talks (15 mins each - per module) :

  • Current state of module - 2 mins
  • Contrib plans for D8 - 2 mins
  • Blockers - 2 mins
  • Potential compatibility issues - 2 minutes
  • Q&A - 5 minutes
  • Change over - 2 mins

Break out groups to come up with architecture: What modules do we still need? What can we consolidate/remove/simplify? Are there better approaches now than in D7 for doing thing X?


  • Layout
  • Media
  • Workflow
  • Preview

Get back together, share "big ideas" from each group and help narrow it down to one or an architecture that allows for compatibility between these elements.


  • Figure out the top modules we need ported for awesome D8 authoring experience
  • A plan to test assumptions for the remaining 3 days of sprints at the conference
  • An overall release plan for the rest of the next 6 months
