I really like Drupal. It is fun to work with, technically stimulating, and the rewrite that was Drupal 8 allowed me to bring my PHP skills screaming and kicking into the modern era. This was my greatest fear and the the thing I was most looking forward to. I'd gotten to the point where I didn't really consider myself a PHP dev any more. I was a Drupal dev. Drupal 8 made me a PHP dev once again. PHP still has it's issues, but it is so much more than it was back in the early days.
