About Drupal 10

Dries on stage at DrupalCon Prague

Over twenty years in the making, Drupal 10 is the latest and greatest version of the Drupal content management system. Powering sites such as NASA, Tesla, and millions more, Drupal is a high powered, low-code CMS with a large and devoted developer community.

Drupal 10 will include features such as

  • Symfony 6.2 PHP framework for a secure, and feature rich foundation.
  • CKEditor 5 is the next generation of text editors, which will make the content creation best-of-breed
  • The new Claro administrative theme brings web accessibility to the forefront, with a new modern look and feel for Drupal’s backend.
  • The new Olivero front-end theme puts a new face on Drupal’s out of the box experience.
  • The new theme generator tool allows for easier creation of custom themes.

The party

Dries on stage at DrupalCon Prague

This is open to everyone (free of charge)! Drupalers from all over the world will be attending through Zoom.

Each hour, we’re having 3 speakers giving 10 minute talks on something Drupal 10 related (this could be a D10 compatible module or theme, or a feature of Drupal core). These talks are meant to be informal and fun, and will not be recorded.

If you’d like to speak, please reach out. We’d love to hear about topics such as

  • Quick rundown of your Drupal 10 compatible module or theme.
  • How you solved a “gotcha”, while making your project Drupal 10 compatible.
  • Walk through of a new Drupal 10 feature.

Reminder that all talks are only 10 minutes. Also note that we might not have room for everyone who wants to speak.

In between each speaker, we’re spacing 10 minutes for socializing, hanging out, and checking out each other’s pets! All attendees must abide by the Drupal Code of Conduct during this party.

Party FAQs

What time does the party start?.

Everything is subject to change. Currently the party will start at 9am PT / noon ET / 6pm CET and run for 5 hours. Once again, as volunteers are added from around the world, this may change.

How do I find the Zoom link to the party?

The link will be posted in at the top of this website when the party starts!

When will Drupal 10 actually be released?

It will be probably released on December 14th. Depending on your time zone, it may actually be released on the 15th. We don't know the exact time yet, but the release window is December 13 1200 UTC to December 15 1200 UTC.

How do I speak at this event?

Thanks for the interest! Please fill out Google form. Note that we only have slots for 15 speakers, so not all will be accepted.

Is there a code of conduct?

Yes! All attendees, volunteers and speakers are required to adhere to the Drupal Code of Conduct.

What is the format? Are there speakers?

There will be speakers giving 10 minute talks (no sales pitches) on Drupal 10 and adjacent topics. In between each speaker slot, we’ll have 10 minutes for socializing.

Will captioning be available?

This event will be using closed captioning and live transcription for Zoom. Details about how to turn on and use closed captioning or live transcription can be found on the Zoom website.

Important note regarding breakout rooms: Zoom breakout rooms are unable to provide closed captioning and live transcription during our event. We are aware of this limitation and will coordinate together so the main room is an option for those who want to utilize captions.

Alternatively, zoom can be run through a browser and participants can use the browser's native accessibility features to utilize captions.

Is there a schedule? When will it be published?

Not yet, but soon!

Who’s organizing this?

This is a community organized event. So far, we have Mike Herchel handling the website and some logistics, April Sides and Dan Lemon handling even more of the logistics, Jen Witkowski with the website design, and AmyJune Hineline (yes, the Aaron Winborn award winner) helping out all over the place.

We need your help

This event is 100% organized by community members, and we need your help!

If you’re interested in volunteering, we have needs for

  • Speakers - We need volunteers to talk about their Drupal 10 compatible modules, thoughts, or work that they’re currently working on in core or contrib. Talks will be limited to 10 minutes (with some notable exceptions).
  • Hosts - We’ll need hosts to help us run the show. They will sign up for two hour time slots and help facilitate conversations, move speakers along, etc.
  • Moderators - We’ll need moderators to help out the hosts and monitor the chat. They will be responsible for enforcing the Drupal Code of Conduct, as well as helping out with host duties where they can.
  • Organizers - If you’re interested in helping to wrangle all of the folks above, please reach out!

Thank you!
