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.
The Drupal community provides a plethora of online learning tutorials, screencasts, and blog posts to help just about anyone learn the basics of Drupal site-building and development. With so many learning resources available, it can be difficult to determine which are the best solutions to use and which are bad habits to avoid. In this workshop, you'll be taken on a journey of building portions of a Drupal site using commonly-implemented best practices.
