This week, these Web Dev Rev notes were reviewed: Microsoft Edge bugs can be reported by Tweet (again, whoops!); browser vendors come together on documentation; the winners of Smashing Magazine's CSS grid challenge; what's new in the latest Microsoft Edge; improving the UX of updating Drupal sites with composer; a "homeowner's guide" to Drupal security; the "hitchhiker's guide" to the "planet" Drupal; a quick look at Webshick's slides on Drupal 9 and backwards compatibility, in particular the callouts to the change records for Drupal core, "Core" on Drupal Groups, and the Drupal 8 backwards compatibility and API policy; a look at the coding standards change proposals from October 17th; a quick look at BADCamp 2017, happening around the same time as this session - a sure source for future Web Dev Rev videos but also with so much output that you should check it out yourselves; introducing Mannequin, a tool for component theming; form and view modes vs. field access in Drupal 8; what's new on Drupal.org for September 2017, and closing with an update on projects created for Drupal.
