File API Panel and Follow-Up Media BOF

Wednesday afternoon/evening (starting at 5:15), Andrew Morton (drewish) and I will be co-presenting The Future of Files and Media in Drupal 7, where we’ll talk about the big changes to the File API from 6 to 7, and efforts to backport some of the functionality into 6. Following this, we’ll segue into a BOF with Arthur Foelsche (arthurf), where we’ll discuss some of the exciting things coming from the Media Sprint 2009. (In fact, he and I worked on the Media module some tonight, putting in some exciting md5 hashing to allow jQuery to communicate indirectly with Drupal about uploaded files without compromising security or speed).

See you then!
