Drupal 8 has been released and it is a huge advancement, but it is also a huge departure from the past.
• Drupal 8 overview. So we're all coming from the same base knowledge, we'll mutually share posts and information about the new features and functionality of Drupal 8.
This will be a great topic for anyone.
• Migrating to Drupal 8. Building a new site in Drupal 8 might seem elementary compared to moving an existing, mission-critical Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 site to D8. Rick will share our experiences in planning and estimating migrations off of Drupal 6.
This is a great topic for site owners and developers who might need to do a migration.
• Converting a contributed module to Drupal 8. Caleb will share his experiences in converting the Math Field module to Drupal 8.
Developers, this topic is for you.
So much to learn. Come prepared to ask questions.View on meetup.comEvent Type: SCUGTags: Drupalgive
Several of our recent projects have involved setting up languages that feel like 'child' languages of other languages, for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it's for marketing, so that content can be overridden for markets using a specific currency, other times it's to target a specific audience. Our classic examples are 'Euro English' and 'British English' - in either case, these are special cases of regular English. A more traditional example would be Canadian French - where most content would be the same as French, but some pages would want different spellings or customisations. We came across Amazee Labs' work on language fallback which inspired us to work on the Language Hierarchy project.
