Deep dive into D8 through Single Sign-On Example

Object oriented structures are replacing our all too familiar hooks which enabled us to extend Drupal with new functionality without hacking core (or other contrib modules). But how does this all work?

In this session we will go through a single sign-on (SSO) example module which will help us understand how OOP works its magic into our modules, making them easier to write, understand and debug. Concepts applied will show how to use event listeners, overwriting routes and other tools.

 

Intuitive Project Management

Don’t let your process lead you down the road to ruin, trust your instincts. As a generally intuitive person, I’ll talk about some of the more soft skills you can develop to ensure you can manage your project to success.

Metrics, spreadsheets, the latest and greatest agile tools are all incredible parts of getting projects done in this day and age, yet the softer skills that come from our intuitive or gut can often be just as critical in ensuring a project goes well.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Modular CSS for Enterprise Websites

CSS bloat is a challenge for every enterprise website. As design elements grow and change, code gets added but rarely deleted and our CSS files get larger and harder to maintain. What was that class name that makes the font color black and 22px? Where is the pattern that gives me the right layout and color scheme for this design? Modular design encourages us to look beyond classes and begin styling on the component level using data attributes. Separate content from design and your code base becomes reusable and more compact.

Backdrop CMS - The Drupal Fork

Backdrop CMS is the Drupal fork. It is a faster and less-complex version of Drupal 7 with Panels, Views, and Configuration Management added into core.

Backdrop CMS has already seen five on-time releases that have added more new core features: a built-in Rich-Text editor, built-in automatic URLs and page redirects, and a browser for adding new add-ons directly from your existing site. Backdrop also includes an updated administrative theme, a new core theme, dozens of UX improvements, as well as the expected improved APIs for developers.

Mastering Drupal 8 Views

Learn how to build complex displays of content—all without programming.

Views was used on more than 80% of all Drupal 7 sites; now it is part of the Drupal 8 core. Learn how to take full advantage of Views' power to create many amazing pages and blocks. Instead of building 10 different view displays with different filters, learn how a contextual filter would require only a single display.

But Wait There's More!
