Building Drupal 8 with all of you has been a wild ride. I thought it would be fun to take a little end-of-week look back at some of our community's biggest milestones through Twitter. If you can think of others important Tweets, please share them in the comments, and I'll update the post.
Feeling nostalgic? See every single version of Drupal running!
Do you remember how #Drupal 1 looked like? Or Drupal 3? Are you curious? Check out all the Drupals! #Celebr8D8

Here is how we opened the development branch for Drupal 8: live at Drupalcon!
The secretsauce of #drupal isn't code or features or market share, important thought they are. The secret sauce is community.

The founder of PHP said: Drupal 8 + PHP7 = a lot of happy people
