Demystifying Drupal 8 Migrations

Parent Track: 
Development & Performance

Drupal 8 Migrations do not need to be as hard as they may seem.  Having performed more than 15 Drupal 6/7 migrations to Drupal 8 in the past 3 years I've learned what works and what has left me frustrated.  In this session, I will show you what to do to make your process easy and repeatable. You will learn how to:


  1. Setup and configuration using Lando as a localhost
  2. What hooks, classes and tricks I use to transform data
  3. Special modules for special situations
  4. Explain some of the more popular process plugins
  5. Cover migrating custom entities and other customizations
  6. Debugging and troubleshooting a migration
  7. Issues and workarounds for known problems


By the end of this session, you should have a solid base of knowledge and tools to handle your own migrations.
