Publishing + Media

Publishing Media

Drupal has been well utilized with publishers and the media industry for years, but often hidden under the hood. With Drupal 8, the Publishing and Media industry has reached a new level. Many publishers launched projects on Drupal 8 and dedicated distributions focusing on publishing when they became available. This track brings publishing / media people together, to share interests and ideas, to listen and learn, to discuss challenges and develop solutions, in the collaborative environment that Drupal has to offer.

Though Drupal has been a well utilized platform for publishers for years, it has not been emphasized for this purpose, but positioned more as a technology, recognized by technicians.

But this has changed with Drupal 8. Since Burda’s Thunder distribution, the NP8 distribution of the Swiss association Media Commons, Springer Ringier’s large headless Drupal project and Le Temps huge Drupal web site (with 4.2 Million page views p. month), Drupal 8 has reached a new level of recognition within the publishing industry.

There is momentum in people’s understanding that OpenSource can change a whole industry. A chance that publishers think about cooperation, when it comes to technology, instead of having big players like Google, Facebook, Twitter, ebay, etc. shape the landscape of technology for publishing and advertising. Open Source is a chance to progress publishing and advertising technology in publishers’ interest and to join forces in a global scale.

Contributing to open source technology is no stranger to members of the Drupal community. But for a traditional company, the concept is quite unusual. That's why it was quite a bang when Hubert Burda Media decided to take this path with its Drupal 8 distribution Thunder.
