Drupal 9 has been happily released, and everyone is eager to move to the new version. What are the blockers? Many modules that are almost ready, but not yet.  If we could just finish testing "this one issue", and maintainer could the commit patch with confidence, we could move to D9 today.  Drupal code on GitLab and fixing issues in forks is already huge step forward.  With new tools like GitPod and DevPanel we can finally set up public testing instance for folks who are ready to contribute their time, but are struggling with setting localdev, composer, etc. 

We will demo how you can test issues on a public test instance using Feeds and Migrate Plus Feeds modules as a foundation for this demo.  The same setup can be used for any module on or for your own projects.  

Target Audience

  • Drupal non-code contributors, who want to donate their time but are struggling with setting up local instances and test scenarios
  • Module maintainers
  • Issue movers 

Learning Objectives

After this sessions learners will be able to

  • actively test issues for Feeds Migrate module on the instance that is already set.  Payback - you can build and edit your migrations via web UI
  • understand what is needed to setup instance to test issues for any module. 

Prior Technical Knowledge

People need to have general understanding of Drupal module system, general understanding of bug fixing and testing process.
