Mike Herchel Reflects on Drupal's "Starshot" Initiative


Mike Herchel, a veteran of 20 DrupalCons, shared his insights on the new "Starshot" initiative announced by Dries Buytaert during the recent DrupalCon Portland in his blog post. Mike likens the initiative to JFK's ambitious "moonshot" speech, highlighting its goal to transform the perception of Drupal as outdated and to usher in significant usability enhancements.

According to Mike, "Starshot" will feature a revamped "Drupal CMS" that integrates core functionalities with widely-used contrib modules, facilitated by the newly committed Recipes API. This change aims to reduce development costs and enhance the experience for content authors and site builders, making Drupal more appealing to the mid-market. Mike's post outlines the potential of the initiative to speed up innovation by separating frequently used modules from the core, which could allow for quicker updates and possibly revitalize the Drupal theme ecosystem through the use of Single Directory Components (SDC).
