Announcing next Search API D8 Sprint - 13-15th of June in Belgium

Wow, what a couple of intense weeks for the Drupal 8 initiative for porting Search API. There were many improvements made lately and we hope to properly explain them all to you but for now I want to shout out a couple things. First and foremost I want to thank everyone in the community and especially Intracto because because of all of you we were able to reach our intended goal to help the funding of Search API for Drupal 8!

Drupal Dev Days Szeged - Initial Sprint for Search API Drupal 8

Thomas and I already agreed this week in Szeged would be the first of a series of sprints to get Search API to a decent state in Drupal 8. As you can read in the Search API for Drupal 8 sprint entry for the Drupal Dev Days  the goals were the following: “The primary focus will be to get the Search API to a usable state in D8 and then decide on and implement framework improvements”

We discussed and talked about what needed to happen but in true community style, not many words were needed to get the first port started and so it happened that, even before all of this, freblasty started a sandbox and already ported a good chunk of the Drupal 7 code to well factored Drupal 8 code.

There was a sign up sheet for the sprints and to our surprise a LOT of people signed up for the sprint. I’ve masked the last names to protect their privacy, so they can opt-in on the exposure of their full name. Drunkenmonkey also prepared a nice list of meta issues that mark the Drupal 8 state before the sprint.
