Git has become our industry’s version control gold standard for good reason: it’s a powerful tool that facilitates collaboration. Yet, as with any powerful tool, the flexibility it affords comes with the price of complexity which, coupled with the abstract nature of the problems it aims to solve, often seems daunting to beginners.
This session will equip you with the knowledge necessary to start contributing to software projects confidently by first exploring the whats and whys before getting into the hows. Some of the topics we’ll cover include:
Drupal 8 provides a fantastic API to import and process structured data from a virtually unlimited set of sources. In this session we'll look at some common and perhaps not-so-common use cases for the Migrate API, ranging from automating repetitive tasks, to capturing constantly-changing third-party data. Some familiarity with the Migrate API will be helpful but we'll do a brief overview of the API before diving into the case studies.
In this session we'll cover some of the basics of the Drupal 8 Migrate API - what it does well, what it doesn't do well, and how to use it. We will then dive into how the Migrate API (plus a few extra contrib modules) can automatically fetch social media content and import it into your site. Finally, we'll tie it all together and look at a project that uses this social migration tool on the backend to allow content editors to choose which social media properties should be aggregated into a single feed and placed on the front-end of a site.
Almost every website interacts with 3rd party systems and majority of these systems are social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Take away the ability to authenticate users with every social network and post content in Drupal 8.
All skill levels are encouraged to attend this presentation to see how easy it is to connect social networks into Drupal 8 with simple point/click demos.
When is custom code appropriate? When should contrib solutions be investigated, and when are they overkill? Is there an acceptable way to hack Drupal? Tune in to hear my take on these, and other codebase-related questions, such as:
Continuous Delivery (CD) you've heard about it used on big fancy sites, but how can you implement it yourself? The critical thing in continuous delivery is that the main branch is in a deployable state at all times enabling regular releases. At DrupalCon Barcelona Dries talked about how projects, including Drupal core, might be able to achieve this noble goal. Implementing CD in Drupal 7 can be tricky but it can also be insanely powerful.
Small, unexpected front-end changes are tough to spot manually and can be a signal for larger problems. Rapid development cycles, large page counts and developer fatigue can make it difficult to catch even visually obvious mistakes before they go live.
Fast, simple, local development for the masses!
It's time to burn down W/MAMP, Virtual Box, Chef, Puppet, Vagrant, lxc, Docker, and all that other DevOps overhead. 2016 is the year cloud-based IDEs become viable.

Drupal 8 uses Twig as its default templating engine. This has generated a lot of excitement but Twig isn't the only thing that has changed in the Drupal 8 Theme System - Twig has been a tool that has allowed us to make many other changes.
In this presentation I will give an overview of how markup should be printed in Drupal 8. I will also walk through some of the changes that have made outputting markup more complex and how to cope with them.
Topics in this session includes:
Drupal has been “getting off the island” implementing P.I.E. (Proudly Invented Elsewhere) with the integration of outside open source projects like Twig and Symfony. But how far off the island will we be going? Have been consequences to moving off the island?
Drupal was written in Php because Dries Buytaert wanted to learn Php. So why do we use Php? What benefits does Php offer? How has Php shaped Drupal? This session will ask these questions and many more. Answers will be offered. Mysteries will remain. But by the end of this session you'll have a better understanding of what makes Drupal.
Module development in Drupal 8 is drastically different from Drupal 7 and previous versions of Drupal. This presentation will introduce the powerful new things you can do easily in Drupal 8. Want to add fields to the node table? No problem. Want to make a condition that can be used in Blocks, Panels, or Rules? Super easy. Need to extend or alter the functionality of field form matters or widgets on your site? No sweat.
In this follow-up to the popular camp session "There's a Module for That: Don't Use It!" we will look at how we can use small bits of code to extend the functionality of Drupal Core and popular contrib modules.
This presentation will start you on your journey into Drupal 8 module development. It will show you the steps you need to take to make a simple but useful Drupal module.
You can checkout the module now.

So, you've developed a beautiful, functional site on Drupal. The designers are happy, the client is happy, and users are converting. But the content editors are frustrated, they hate the experience. Sound familiar? Yeah, we've all been there.
Decoupling Drupal ("headless" Drupal) is a technique whereby the CMS sends data via JSON to the client and passes on responsibility of rendering and controller logic to the browser. When incorporated, this approach can produce responsive, customizable and scalable web applications.
Making the most of Pantheon — Devops techniques and features that will speed up site and workflow. Pantheon is a robust all-in-one platform option that eliminates the headaches of deploying and maintaining a server. Though the basic functionality are valuable to devs, many of the platform’s most exciting features go overlooked.
