1. Getting started

Set up a Drupal 8 enviroment, start your favorite PHP editor and create a folder in the drupal 8 modules directory for the filter.

Fehlermeldung nach Umzug des zentralen Code-Repositories

Body: 

Unlängst haben wir unsere Git-Repositories auf einen neuen Server migriert. Zugriff auf die Git-Repos ist bei erdfisch via SSH-Keys geregelt.

Wollte man nun nach dem Umzug z.B. mit einem git pull die neueste Version aus dem Repo lokal ziehen, kassierte man folgende erst einmal sehr wild aussehende Fehlermeldung:

Hey there, I‘m Tamina Schneider, and I‘m one of those girls that can coexist with one of you Drupal nerds. I've been knowing my boyfriend Pascal Crott for six years now, and I was already with him when he started his ,Drupal issue‘. At present, I study business administration at Berlin and live together with a Drupalist who works at erdfisch. A few months ago Pascal told me that he will go to Drupalcon Prague with Daniel Wehner in September.

Drupalcon is over. I managed to get myself to the convention center today, and it really was worth it. I head some nice discussions about Drupal with various people.

The best session I saw today was by Tim Plunckett, who is one of the heads behind "Views in core". The session was called "Drupal 8 routing: the method in the madness" and was basically about the ideas and functunalities behind the new routing system and explaining why hook_menu was detached.

However, one thing I would like to talk about, and what I actually intended to do yesterday is the card game „Broken Head“. I missed the BoF about it, but luckily I went to the coder's lounge this evening and got the chance to play some rounds with the inventer patrickd.

The day started early in Prague for several hundred developers, gathering to watch the great traditional opening session by Jam and Robert Douglass. Apparently, this was the first time that Robert could not be there in person, but Jam did a great job in entertaining the people. It was a great piece of musical and play act work, performing a „hacked opera“ of the magic fluet, and about a noob getting touched with the community. There where songs, tears and jokes, very amusing.
