This was my first DrupalCon experience and I attended as the manager of a production team, so please note that everything here is from that perspective.

Drupal 8 Webform ModuleDrupal 8 now comes with the Contact module built in. This adds basic form functionality to the site to be used as personal or site-wide contact forms. However, in many cases, this is not enough. Luckily, there are options for you to choose from. With many of the features from Drupal 7 ported over, the Webform module for Drupal 8 is a feature-packed option that I prefer to employ. Here are 3 reasons why.

Open Source vs. Proprietary CMSThere is a death coming to proprietary content management systems. The truth is open source is more than capable and in many instances, the best option for organizations looking to maximize their investment online.
