Migrating to Drupal 8 with Confidence
March 12th, 2:15-3:15pm
Drupal 8 is a powerful platform, with features many nonprofits are using to deepen their impact. However, migrations to any new platform can be hard. Fortunately, Drupal 8 comes with a suite of migration tools built-in, helping organizations migrate their website from previous versions of Drupal or any other source. As of Drupal 8, Drupal has also changed its development process so that features are continually added and upgrades to future versions will no longer require migration, so this may be the last migration you need to do!
We’ll walk through what is needed to effectively prepare for a migration, touching upon the specifics for WordPress and Drupal 7. Using real world examples, we’ll then look at what migrating users, blog posts and other content looks like. The session will wrap up with important “gotchas”, a list of further resources and time for Q&A. By the end you’ll have the tools and resources needed to migrate confidently.
