Drupal 9 was released on June 3, 2020, and that’s already a year behind us. Drupal 10’s target date is June 2022! As long as 2020 was, 2022 seemed a long way away, but it definitely is not. As Drupal continues to progress, Drupal users and developers get more used to the consistent framework Drupal is built on. Planning ahead for everything from new features, to software upgrades, is faster and simpler than ever before. ## Listening to the Symfony November 2023 is the target end of life (EOL) date for Symfony 4. Drupal versions have to keep up with supported versions of Symfony. Drupal 8’s end of life (EOL) is determined by Symfony 3’s EOL date, which is part of why the EOL date for D8 was not extended, even though Drupal 7’s was. Drupal versions have to keep up with supported versions of Symfony. Compatibility with later Symfony versions may come sooner, to ensure cross-compatibility in Drupal. ## Ease of upgrades Drupal 8 to 9 was probably the easiest major version upgrade in the history of Drupal, because Drupal 9 was built on the same framework, only removing deprecated code.

Angie has been at the center of the community nearly since her first contribution to the project, over a decade and a half ago. Between her ‘friendly helpful lioness’ persona, her mentorship, her development skills, and her commitment to hearing needs and finding solutions with consensus, she has been a cornerstone of ‘what the Drupal community is about’. This session of our <a href="https://tag1consulting.com/20years">20 years of Drupal</a> series features Angie, as she talks with Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers. Angie’s career spans from college where she was a Google Summer of Code participant getting her start in Drupal, to Lullabot, to Acquia where she was tasked with doing the work she’d been doing informally for years, to her current position at MongoDB. When Drupalists say “Come for the code, stay for the community”, Angie is one of the key people that have made the community what it is. --- <em>For a transctipt of this video, see <a href="/transcript-20-years-drupal-angie-byron" title="Transcript - 20 years of Drupal with Angie Byron">Transcript - 20 years of Drupal with Angie Byron</a>.</em> --- Photo by Shane Rounce on Unsplash</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/angie-byron-talks-history-and-drupal-community" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Wed, 11/17/2021 - 07:30</span> Wed, 17 Nov 2021 15:30:17 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 417 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Reducing complexity with Preact and HTM with Fabian Franz - Pt. 2 https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/reducing-complexity-preact-and-htm-fabian-franz-pt-2 <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>In part 1 of our talk with Tag1 Consulting’s VP of Software Engineering Fabian Franz, he and Managing Director Michael Meyers discussed the increasing complexity of software and website development.

As technology develops, some of the requirements for coding that had been necessary in the past has shifted to a need to understand tooling. While changing some parts of a website have become easy due to advancements in CSS tools and other helpers, those changes may be harder to deploy due to build processes. Instead of making a quick and simple change, you may need a full CI/CD process - trading speed for stability and repeatability.</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/has-app-development-become-too-complex" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Mon, 11/08/2021 - 07:00</span> Mon, 08 Nov 2021 15:00:35 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 396 at https://www.tag1consulting.com David Strauss on 20 Years of Drupal https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/david-strauss-drupal-performance-and-development <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>In this installment of our 20 years of Drupal series, David joins Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers to talk about his experience in making contributions - not just upfront contributions like Bakery, but the ones he considers even more important - the behind the scenes performance enhancements and integrations that have helped make Drupal what it is today.</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/david-strauss-drupal-performance-and-development" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Wed, 11/03/2021 - 06:47</span> Wed, 03 Nov 2021 13:47:00 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 411 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Drupal 8 end of life is here! https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/drupal-8-end-life-here <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Drupal 8 end of life is here!
