Migration into Drupal 8
Trainer: Ryan Weal
The upgrade path between major versions of Drupal is now more flexible and extensible than ever allowing many new ways to get content into your new Drupal 8 site. This is the result of refactoring, expanding, and porting the Migrate and Drupal-to-Drupal Data Migration modules into Drupal 8 core.
In this session we will walk you through the process of migrating using the UI, explaining concepts and strategies for approaching migration. Later in the day we will get into more advanced topics: explaining how you can override the configuration, write your own configuration, and help you identify when you will need to make use of plugins to extend migrate.
Outline / Agenda
- Concepts / Introduction
- Running a “full” migration using the UI, D6/D7->D8
- Writing a custom migration from scratch, using a CSV source file
- Doing an advanced “generated” migration by modifying migraitons generated by core.
