State of Drupal presentation (September 2015)

File this under "better late than never". Before the year closes out, I wanted to post my 2015 DrupalCon Barcelona keynote video and slides. I archive all my DrupalCon keynotes on my site so anyone who is interested in taking a trip to memory lane or studying the evolution of Drupal, can check out all my previous DrupalCon keynotes.

My DrupalCon Barcelona keynote is focused on having a realistic, open and honest conversation about the state of Drupal. In it, I broke down my thoughts on Drupal's market position, development process, and "decoupled Drupal". You can watch the recording of my keynote or download a copy of my slides (PDF, 27 MB).

In addition, here are three related blog posts I wrote about the future of decoupled Drupal, having to pick a JavaScript framework for Drupal, and a proposal for how to evolve our development process, which will allow us to ship new features every 6 months rather than every 4-5 years.
