I've talked with hundreds of Drupal professionals over the years (probably thousands at this point), and whether or not it's intentional, I think we fall into a pattern. When we talk about the benefits of the platform — specifically Drupal 8 — and what it can do for organizations, we often talk about it in relation to either the front-end user or the website developer.Continue Reading
One of the favorite parts of my role at Duo is talking with potential clients about their digital challenges and helping determine whether Drupal can help develop a solution to their problem. Ask any of these people, and they'll tell you that I love talking about the benefits of Drupal 8 and how revolutionary the newest version of the platform can be.

What’s your roadmap?
That’s the question I ask any potential client I speak with. What’s your plan for creating content on your website? What path are you going to take to migrate from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8?
