University - a Drupal 8 distribution for universities - Update: Slides published!

Session description

Drupal 8 is a great solution for universities and colleges. Even though these sites have different needs and structures, the base for a site like this should have some common ground. They all tend to be content heavy, should communicate studies to attract new students, and have a large group of editors/employees.

The session covers general thought behind the distro, how to get going, and how to use it well.
