You should know about Drupal 8. You should also have a basic understanding of what configuration is, but I will be going through this as well.
Understanding configuration in Drupal 8 is essential. It's a powerful tool that can streamline your development and deployment processes. After several rescue projects over the past year I have realised that the one thing that goes wrong first is the configuration. For some reason it's always left until last or even as an afterthought and this can really de-rail projects.
In this session I will cover.
- How to get your configuration in and out of Drupal.
- How to best manage your configuration.
- Using configuration modules like Configuration Ignore and Configuration Split to manage your configuration across different platforms.
- What to do when the client changes the configuration on your site and some other common problems that you might encounter.
