Media-handling in Drupal has never been easy. As Drupal core only includes basic file and image support, you had (and still have) to install lots of contrib modules to achieve tasks, which seem to be standard in other content-Management-Systems. The Media Initiative is one of several Drupal 8 Initiatives, which wants to make Media in Drupal easier to use, both for developers, site builders, as well as content editors and other end users.This session is about the Drupal 8 Media Initiative and you will see, what has been achieved until now, and what is planned for future Drupal releases.

In this session, I will describe my experiences in updating a Drupal module from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 (the adsense module). The session will describe the lessons learned in this process, including the removal of the previous "sub-module as plugins" system, and it's replacement with a true plugin system based on the infrastructure provided by Drupal 8. It will also advocate for a thorough removal of the .module file as much as possible. Some tools helpful for module development will also be addressed including:

In this session, we will cover some general use cases of the group module in Drupal 8 with the following:
