DrupalCon Barcelona has come and gone and there were some big announcements about Drupal 8 and when it could be released. On Wednesday, Drupal 8.0.0-RC1 was finally released to the masses that have been waiting for any kind of update regarding the new version of Drupal, you can read more about it on Drupal.org's website.
Many of those that presented at DrupalCon focused on the future of Drupal, but also keeping a focus on Drupal 7 and how to keep evolving. Some of my favorite presentations are listed below, ranging from Drupal 8 theming, PHP 7, and of course Drupal 7.
