Leaflet is a great lightweight Open Source JS mapping library that can pair very well with Drupal. The LeafletJS drupal module can easily get you going and with a few other contributed modules you can have some great features to display your Data. However, there is so much more that leaflet can do AND there is so much more that the developer can do to customize the user's interaction with your data.
Presenting the essentials a developer should understand to dive into a Drupal 8 site and see where and how to integrate their custom module in Drupal 8.
The Drupal 8 Kickstart presentation will be enhanced by screensharing phpStorm showing Drupal 8 concepts in use in an actual new custom Drupal 8 module on a locally-installed demo Drupal 8 site.
Developers with Drupal 7 experience will find that the discipline and organization they have gained from developing to Drupal 7 will benefit them as that knowledge is expanded to include Drupal 8 concepts.
Testing is more important than ever. In an Agile development enviroment, testing is essential.
Now you can learn to understand Behat testing as related to Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 -- fast.
Behat Kickstart for Drupal Developers covers the basics of Behavior Driven Development (BDD) and Behat and then rapidly moves into more advanced concepts that will quickly escalate your grasp of Behat by clearly integrating Behat with your existing Drupal and PHP knowledge.
Now that Drupal 8 has been released it's time to dive in. But with so many innovations in Drupal 8 where to start. This presentation will explore the most valuable innovations in Drupal 8 and offer examples illustrating why these features will become invaluable. We'll be stepping through some examples of how to use new features and what they may mean to developing with Drupal as they mature.
Drupal 8 Innovation we'll be exploring
The session will illuminate how our conscious choices impact ourselves, our future, and those around us. We will begin by discussing leadership, the current and future world of work, and the importance of living a life of purpose.
Sound continuous integration practices are game-changing for teams looking to deliver stellar digital services to stakeholders. Automated deployments, rigorous code review, and similar processes are valuable tools developers employ to ensure the best possible results. Unfortunately for customers, those results are usually obtainable only through the services of developers, server admins, and trained technical staff.
Debugging is more than fixing broken code. It is about logically thinking through steps and using the appropriate tools to solve problems.
In this presentation, Jim Keller from Eastern Standard will outline some of the fundamental differences between bad, good, and great code, provide techniques and best practices (and some things to always avoid), and discuss why code matters more than ever as we move into Drupal 8.
Dive into code-driven details with a backstory, discovering a complete solution which achieves consistency using secure and open-sourced automation. Introduce harmony to your infrastructure and Agile workflow while adding business value and reducing risk.

GraphQL has been deemed everything from the death knell of RESTful architectures to the query language of the future.
Now that Drupal 8 has an official release, it's time to look at the way things work for front end developers.
In this session we will compare the Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 theme layers and what makes front end development in Drupal 8 different. We will also look at the proper way to port a D7 theme to D8.
In this session you will learn:
