Drupal 8 end of life is here! We’re only a few days away from the end of official community support for Drupal 8, and it’s time to make decisions. November 2, 2021 is it - leaving Drupal 7 for one more year, and Drupal 9 as the officially supported Drupal versions. You may be asking yourself:

As everyone in the Drupal community knows, Drupal 8 was a major shift in the way the software was built and will be developed into the future. Prior to Drupal 8, each major release essentially caused major rewrites for core and all of the contributed modules. Drupal 8 aimed to fix this; moving forward, Drupal upgrades will be easy and fast. You get a great return on investment upgrading to D9 because you can seamlessly...

Many of us in open source communities tend to be proponents of not only the primary project we’re working with (like Drupal), we also tend to be pretty big proponents of other types of open source software.

Experimenting with running Goose load tests from AWS, Goose has proven to make fantastic use of all available system resources, so that it is only generally limited by network speeds.

In this second part, Linus offers insight and perspective gained from managing a large open source project for three decades. He also talks about his employment at the Linux Foundation, and describes what he does with his spare time when he's not focused on kernel development.

Thirty years ago, Linus Torvalds was a 21 year old student at the University of Helsinki when he first released the Linux Kernel. His announcement started, “I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional…)”. Three decades later, the top 500 supercomputers are all running Linux, as are over 70% of all smartphones. Linux is clearly both big and professional.
