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.
The new versions of these modules go much further than both the old upgrade path and the Drupal 7 modules they replace. The migrations now include setup of content types, variable and block migrations, internationalization, and pathways for most system components that are now in core. This session will provide an overview of the architecture, a demonstration of a sample migration, an update on the current progress, and some time for Q&A.
Trainer: Daniel Schiavone, Snake Hill
