Drupal 9 Launch

Drupal 9

Drupal 9 is here! I’ve been working with Drupal for the past seven years now and have grown to love it. I started out with Drupal 7 and although it was a steep learning curve from what I was use to building sites with, it got easier once I got deeper into the code and understood the architecture of the software and API, especially with Drupal 8.
