Lower the Drupal 8 development barrier to entry by using the Drupal Console to generate boiler plate code.

I admit that I haven't really looked at Drupal 8 too much yet. There is a variety of reasons why I haven't and I surely don't want this to turn into a forum listing the pros and cons of D8. We can leave that for another post. 

The main reason for my delay is that looking at the boiler plate for symfony, I have always been a little turned off by how much code I have to write just to get a module up and running. However, the Drupal Console really alleviates a lot of the confusion and tedious work by helping you create all the files and directories that you need to get started with your own custom module.

Check out this video to see how easy it is to get a Hello World module up and running. It will take you less than 5 minutes to create your very own working Drupal 8 module.
