The Future of Site Building: A Panel on Drupal Starshot

Bonjour Room - 2nd Floor @ 1:15-2:00 PM


At DrupalCon Portland 2024, Dries Buytaert unveiled the "Starshot" initiative, a vision set to bring the most significant transformation to Drupal since its Symfony rewrite over a decade ago.
Named after JFK’s famous “Moonshot” speech, the Starshot initiative aims to create a radically more user-friendly version of Drupal. This ambitious project encompasses several key sub-initiatives, including:

  • Recipes
  • Experience Builder
  • Project Browser
  • Automatic Updates
  • Improved Documentation
  • A new starting point called “Drupal CMS”

In this combination session / panel, a team of experts will guide attendees through the essence of Starshot, explaining each sub-initiative, how they interconnect, and give updates to their current statuses.
After the session portion, we’ll have a panel to discuss what this initiative means for Drupal, potential benefits for larger and smaller websites, and where you can help.
