Drupal 8 and the Symfony Event Dispatcher

Eric Smith delivers an exciting talk on  'Drupal 8 and the Symfony Event Dispatcher'. Drupal 8 is a big shift away from the Drupalisms of the past, towards a more modern structure. One of these changes is the use of the Symfony Event Dispatcher component, which is replacing some of the invoked hooks from Drupal 7. Eric is focusing on 3 key areas, what this component is, what events are, as well as how to send and respond to events in Drupal 8'.
