Shockingly Fast Site Development with Acquia Lightning 4.0

Additional Info

Developers embrace Drupal for many reasons: its powerful open source framework, support from the best developer community in the world, and the vast ecosystem of integrations and partners, to name a few.

To help you access innovative functionality early and get Drupal sites up and running faster, we built Acquia Lightning.

Acquia Lightning is an open source Drupal distribution that delivers all that’s in Drupal core, plus more! It addresses key requirements we see in demand in our work helping thousands of customers to build, launch, and maintain Drupal sites every day.

In this session, we’ll show you how the new Acquia Lightning 4.0 helps you get Drupal projects up and running quickly by delivering key components related to Media, Layout, Workflow and APIs, out-of-the-box. You’ll come away from this with a clear understanding of the benefits of using Lightning for your Drupal project and the simple steps it takes to get started with Lightning.
