I'm excited to be discussing migration in Drupal 8 at the next Drupal Cape Town meetup, Wednesday the 27th of February 2019. The broad outline of my talk is:

  • Introduction to migration in Drupal 8, and why it’s important to anyone with a Drupal 7 or Drupal 6 site.
  • Migrate concepts and terminology.
  • A brief breakdown of the different types of migrations.
  • How to prepare for a migration.
  • Migration demonstrations (time permitting): Non Drupal to Drupal and Drupal to Drupal migrations
  • When to upgrade your Drupal 7 sites, and D7 and D8 EOL.
  • Migrations and upgrades in a post D7 world.
  • Adopting the Product Approach to foster continuous innovation.


I hope to see you there: https://www.meetup.com/Drupal-Cape-Town/events/259127432/
