HAPPY DRUPAL 8 DAY EVERYBODY!

5 years is a long time to be working on a thing. I am so relieved that today has come and that Drupal 8 is actually out. Really +Tom O'Connor, here's the evidence:

https://www.drupal.org/news/drupal-8.0.0-released

I know that next few months will be filled with learning how to do some of the things I already knew how to do in Drupal 7. And that road might have frustration well supplied. But I am ready.

I want to focus my contributions to the Drupal open source project buy putting my attention on listening to how users use Drupal. What are the things that are frustrating, what things make you feel comfortable with the tool? What is hard what is easy? What are the words you use?

I'll leave it to others to make recommendations on how to "fix" things. I just want to listen.

How do I disable hangouts/chat in either Inbox or G+? Currently I get a ping and a flash in both on every message.

maybe they heard you liked ping and flash so much in  your inbox that they put ping and flash in G+ so you could see ping and flash while you see ping and flash.

Dear internet: Can you please in inappropriate excruciating detail explain the state machine that typically controls this class of devices?
Thank you, a stupid user.

Really inspiring, really impressive.
 
There have been a lot of articles on Google[x] and "fail fast", but this transcript of Astro Teller's recent talk is interesting because of the multitude of concrete examples.

https://medium.com/backchannel/how-to-make-moonshots-65845011a277

I actually tried to apply to the self-driving car team for a position I thought I was qualified for, and they didn't even reply to my email to say "no thanks", which kinda bummed me out.
Astro Teller says that at Google[x], failure is indeed an option. So is changing the world.
