How to Log Messages in Drupal 8
"Developers familiar with Drupal 7 will also be familiar with watchdog(), an API function that allows you to create a log message that appears on the Reports page in the Drupal administrative UI. Implementing D7’s hook_watchdog allows module developers to customize the destination of these log messages. In Drupal 8, both functions are replaced by a PSR-3-compatible logging interface."

Making reactive Headless Drupal 8 interfaces with Meteor
"Meteor is a JavaScript framework that enables developers to quickly create reactive, highly accessible applications. Drupal is a great content management system that makes it really easy to create well-structured content models and interact with data. Why not combine the two and let Drupal provide Meteor with semantic data with Meteor rendering that data in a reactive way?"

To Alter or Dispatch: Drupal 8 Events versus Alter Hooks
Drupal 8 comes with two extension points for module developers to allow other modules to interact with their code. The trusty alter hook, the linchpin of Drupal versions past is still there - allowing other modules to interact and intervene in the behaviour of your module. But there is a new kid on the block, the event system. So as a module developer how do you decide whether to use the alter system or the event system.
