Commerce 2.x is still under heavy development for Drupal 8, with the most recent major merges including the full Payment API (which itself represents a major leap in functionality over what was provided in 1.x). In this session, you'll get a quick overview of the major new features in Commerce 2.x by way of a short technical demo that's sure to embarrass the presenter.
Drupal Camp Asheville 2024 - July 12th-14th
Even if you're only casually acquainted with Drupal 8, you probably know that the core upgrade path to Drupal 8 has been completely rewritten from the ground-up, using many of the concepts of the Migrate and Drupal-to-Drupal migration modules. Using the new core Migrate modules, it is possible to migrate much of a Drupal 6 (or Drupal 7) site to Drupal 8 with a minimum of fuss.
Before Drupal 8, changes in site configuration could only be stored and moved between environments by using the Features module. This practice was less than ideal, as Features was not originally conceived for this purpose. Since there was no other better way to manage configuration outside of the database, this became the standard practice.
In the front-end world, our responsibilities often rest upon delivering designs that look great on any screen, but the technology we use to achieve this can be a frustrating mess of awkward styles and heavy frameworks. Enter flexbox.
With flexbox, we can easily slay complicated designs without the headaches.
There are many tools out there today for hosting Drupal sites with workflow tools built in. There are also a large number of development tools showing up on the scene for local development. Lets get back to basics and learn the root of Drupal deployment from local to production.

Open source technologies plays a huge role in our lives as developers, most of us probably even make a living (run a business, freelancing, hobby/side projects) while using open source technologies.

UNC Asheville recently completed a 2-year project to design, develop, and implement 2 new Drupal themes for our 100+ websites. One theme was externally facing, the other an administrative theme.
In June 2016 I hiked about 50 miles of the Appalachian Trail, a 2,189 mountainous route from Georgia to Maine. Starting in March 2017 I plan to take time off from Drupal and hike the entire trail from end to end.
What does hiking have to do with Drupal? A lot more than you might think.
Between you and your brilliant code stands... the editor. From Notepad to Eclipse - we stare them down daily. Sometimes even before coffee. Wouldn't it be nice if PhpStorm could do some of your work for you, even if it's not a caffeine replacement?
Marketing automation software allows marketers to streamline and automate repetitive marketing tasks, such as email marketing, to nurture prospects from the top of marketing funnel to sales-ready leads. Web personalization aims to tailor a digital experience for each site visitor to increase engagement and conversation rates.
Key syntax features to be discussed:
The integration of design and development is still a work in progress. The pursuit of beautiful visuals often leads to complex development demands, compounded by the need for parity with responsive, grid-based web systems. The stark differences between the two disciplines can widen the gap between the creative vision of a website and the actual achievement of it.

We’ll use object-oriented PHP instead with Robo ( http://robo.li), a task runner written in PHP that will help organize and automate repetitive commands.
The Paragraphs module has been around since 2013 and rapidly gained acclaim for being the bomb diggity. And though Panels, Panopoly, and the In-Place Editor have long been staple ingredients in Kalamuna’s awesome-sauce, our love affair is officially over.
In this talk we'll discuss common Drupal performance issues and how to troubleshoot them. Then we’ll dive into New Relic and how to leverage this powerful tool to monitor, troubleshoot and optimize your site. In this talk you will learn how to:
