I have been using Vagrant for a very long time now. I love it. It is perfectly to setup the environment and develop for Drupal, however recently I tried moving some of my sites to Drupal 8. I know I am late, very, very late but better late than never :) and I realised setting up the environment manually is a bigger pain, to be honest I am never comfortable setting up LAMP, I don't think I have ever configured Apache perfectly in one go. It always needs some R&D to make it work with Drupal or may be I am not good in it. I don't know. It is a pain.
Today I want to show you how you can quickly setup a Drupal 8 website on Pantheon.io for learning purpose. It is a great way to get started on Drupal without setting up any environment on your local system.
Few days ago I decided that I will revamp this blog to latest version of Drupal which is version 8. To be honest I was not sure about D8 but more about improving the site.
This year has been interesting in many ways. Living in foreign country and adapting new things is challenging but it wasn't really very tough. For me I am quite used to Delhi so living in London for me is more about reminiscing. Lets see what is next for me. As of now things are good.
I think I have not installed any fresh Drupal setup in the past 2 years. What a shame! I used to love Drupal. For the past 2 years I am 100% focused on Atlassian tool set, which I thought is a wise decision.
Today I was browsing the Drupal Views page and I came to know that the project owners are trying to get View into the Drupal Core in Drupal 8. That would be so Awesome. Just like CCK which is now part of Drupal 7. If you want to contribute then please ChipIn.
