Are you a developer looking to move to Drupal 8?

If so, the Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 track will be your guide.

Object-orientation, the maturity of Drupal's various APIs, Drupal 8's new underlying Symfony (and other) components, and the emergence of Drupal Console means that developing for Drupal 8 requires some new knowledge for existing Drupal developers. This track is designed to introduce existing Drupal developers as well as (non-Drupal) PHP developers to some of the techniques and concepts for Drupal 8 module development. The workshop includes an overview of some of the main concepts and tools as well as several hands-on module development exercises designed to build knowledge and confidence.

Featured Speaker: Build an Industrial Grade Development Workflow
