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.
