Lightning Distribution for Drupal: Build Advanced Authoring Experiences in Drupal 8

Lightning provides developers with a lightweight framework for building advanced authoring experiences in Drupal 8. Developers gain a massive head-start when building great authoring experiences with Lightning, but it has not been a simple development roadmap. In this webinar, learn about some of the decisions we had to tackle, including:

drupal lightning
  • Which modular functionality should be considered core to the authoring experience?
  • How will developers extend Lighting to create their own corporate or vertical distributions that leverage our authoring capabilities?
  • Should Lighting be divisible into its components?
  • How do we give developers the best upgrade experience possible?

We will also share more of the roadmap for Lightning including the Workplace Preview System, a Higher Education Scenario, and Decoupled Blocks integration. Also included will be a demo of all 18 of our user stories so you understand the intent and operation of the features we have implemented.
