Drupal, up until now a PAC (Presentation Abstraction Control) architecture, has taken a step closer to MVC (Model View Controller) architecture. Although nowhere have they mentioned about MVC, the new Drupal 8 is strictly object oriented. Another feature in Drupal 8, that is different from the existing versions of Drupal is that it is not entirely Drupal. Drupal 8 uses many components in symfony like it's ClassLoader, YAML file structure, twig and so on. For a detailed description please visit the Drupal 8 home page.

Drupal module uses a lot of functionality. Once we enable a module we add many functionalities to Drupal. Sometimes we do not want to display the functionality provided by module but we do want the functionality to work in the background.

When focusuing on Drupal website development, user roles and permissions are an important way of controlling access to the site. This is more so important when there are multiple individuals besides the website owner who administers the site. Other people can be assigned certain 'roles' which define the kind of access that is to be granted. Basically in Drupal, the Site maintainer and Administrator roles are given all the available permissions and Drupal Administrator role receives all permissions throughout the lifespan of the site. This is not the case for other 'roles', where access within admin permissions and time limits only are granted to users linked to those roles.

If you are a lazy person then probably you don't like to waste your time to find some stupid script to delete all nodes. In fact there is no need to do that, since somebody had already done that. I am saying about the Devel Generate module. Yes, Devel Generate to delete nodes!
