Over the past couple of years, the Drupal community has been hard at work trying to confront a variety of challenges concerning Drupal core development, especially issues like burnout and funding.

"You're always you, and that don't change, and you're always changing, and there's nothing you can do about it.”

I am writing to announce that I have made the difficult decision to resign from Wisconsin Public Radio. My last day will be Friday, February 14. I have accepted a job offer to be a Senior Developer at Lullabot.

I hope that you see a lot of reminders to vote this week. Of course, I am referring to the vote for the Drupal Association (DA) Board of Directors. I have already seen a number of blog posts and tweets that link to the candidate profiles, the first and second "meet the candidate" sessions, and the URL where you cast your vote.

If you have not read Alex Bronstein's (effulgentsia's) excellent blog post about creating your first Drupal 8 module, go read it: Drupal 8: Hello OOP, Hello world! This post will expand on Alex's discussion and introduce the new configuration API in Drupal 8. Here we will have the modest goal of making the display of the text "Hello, World!" configurable -- more specifically, we will give site administrators the ability to make the text UPPERCASE or Title Case. I can tell you are excited.
