Please take the survey here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e...

Analysis
Drupal 8 is better than Drupal 7. Data-modelling, performance, multi-language. It feels so much more robust this day. More functionality is in-core and fully tested. In a conceptual way, Drupal 8 is not so different from Drupal 7. The Administration-UI’s are the same and you probably will also use the same modules for a project. Site builders will feel really comfortable. All-in-all I am getting excited about Drupal 8!

One little Drupal community secret: the main-event of a DrupalCon might be sprinting... A code sprint is getting developers for a set amount of time – usually one to two days – and just writing code. That's it. You're not teaching anything. Participants will learn from others as they go, but the...

Organic Groups
Views
Drupal 7
If you want to list Organic Group content in a View you must do a little more that just add one reference. In our usecase we didn't use Organic Groups' default reference field (og_ref that is) and we chained multiple groups (a group has content and a group is part of a parentgroup).

Translation
Guide
This article contains a detailed instruction on how to setup the Entity Translation module for Drupal 7 websites. Entity Translation is part of Drupal 8 core and its approach is to translate fields instead of full nodes/entities. Goal of this tutorial is to set up a multilingual website that can be navigated in multiple languages by visitors and to enable the content to be easily manageable by editors / cms administrators. To get multilingual right, it’s critical that you configure your content-types and fields with care and precision and upfront, because if content is already in your database it is almost impossible to change these configurations. So let's go.

Cron
So when I import from a feed using a form (/import/node_importer), I get a nice little progress bar and I can import roughly 4k rows in about a minute and a half. How can I get the same performance using cron/periodic imports/process in background? I currently have it configured to run every 15...
