Building effective systems faster using Drupal 8


This session is about coding with Drupal 8 using native API-s and tools like Composer, Drupal Console, PHPStorm and Docker (using a wrapper like Lando or DDEV).

Session details

At first Drupal 8 seemed to be hard until I introduced myself how core systems are built and learned to use PHPStorm.

For my daily workflow I use DrupalConsole, PHPStorm and Composer. It has helped me to build highly effective systems using little number of extra modules. I would love to share some knowledge to you so it would help you to build better Drupal apps faster.

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
