Core Conversations Summit

Evaluate this session.

Core Conversations are a place for people actively working and contributing to Drupal core or to meet, discuss, and plan the future of Drupal.

1:00-2:00pm - Upgrading your modules to Drupal 8

Click to watch "Upgrading your modules to Drupal 8"
This talk, led by webchick, will demonstrate how to take the code from a Drupal 7 module and convert it to Drupal 8. You'll learn about many of the new Drupal core APIs that are coming down the pipe, as well as some "gotchas" to be aware of. The hope is that this talk can be both fun and educational, but also serve as "usability testing" for the Drupal 8 developer experience, since we will still have time to refine APIs before Drupal 8's release (hopefully with *your* help!).
