Esokia endorses totally Drupal 8
Esokia is excited about Drupal 8 released !
Drupal 8 is a real new experience for users. It breaks down the rules for all developpers.
A large part of Symfony are in the codebase and Twig is the template engine.
Concerning the site-building part, Drupal 8 is much more performant than Drupal 7. Popular modules, as Views, only available as add-on modules in Drupal 7, are now part of the new version of Drupal 8.
Content-administrators are also concerned about the new changes. Now, they have a front-end editing for more conveniency.
But what do our Technical Director, Patrick Morin, is thinking about this new release ? He is expert in programming since more than 10 years.
Patrick Morin : "Drupal 8 is a new major version of Drupal. This new update ensures more interoperability with third-party tools because of its RESTful style, allowed by Symfony integration.
Drupal 8 guarantees a better users experience because of its Mobile First approach.
Drupal 6 and 7 were criticized for not being ergonomic for the backoffice and to be too procedural which was not really user-friendly. Drupal 8 fixes these problems which makes it more performant and more convenient for all users.
Drupal 8 is much more object oriented. We need to wait few weeks to the major modules be available in Drupal 8 but we can't wait to start new projects with our clients with Drupal 8 !"
Drupal 8 is now available on its dedicated page on Drupal website, here. You can even have a demo.
