The Old and New Field API in Drupal 8

Click here to watch The Old and New Field API in Drupal 8.

Drupal 8 has (and is still being) changed significantly under the hood. Field API also got a big overhaul.

In this session we'll cover the API changes with lot's of code examples so you're ready to port your field modules to Drupal 8 or implement the API in custom projects. But that's not all. We'll also show you new and exciting features and talk about how we were able to speed up Field API's rendering system which in the end results in a faster Drupal as well.

And then there's this New Field API. What's the difference with the old one and what's the impact for me as a developer ?

Whether you're a coder or site builder, fields are one of the essential pieces of your Drupal site, so everyone is more than welcome to join!
