Media in Drupal 8: everything you need to know

Everyone has heard about Drupal 8's new media management features, but not everyone understands how to use them. This session will explain everything you need to know about the media system in Drupal 8.

I'll explain what media types are and how to create them, and how to use them to build and manage a media library. I'll show you how to use the kick-ass Media Library module to give your users a great media handling experience. And I'll clear up some of the more confusing aspects of the wider module ecosystem for media management. You can trust me; I'm one of the system's maintainers. And I'm here to dispel your confusion and answer your questions.

This session is appropriate for beginner to intermediate Drupal 8 site builders and developers. I'll assume a solid understanding of things like content types and fields.

If there's extra time and interest, I'll also give a brief bonus overview of how developers can extend the media system. (This will be more under-the-hood and technical, and will assume knowledge of PHP and Drupal's plugin system.)
