Using the Drupal 8 configuration system

Click here to watch Using the Drupal 8 configuration system.

Drupal 8 has a new configuration management system, but what does that even mean? This session will outline how to work with the new configuration system from a sitebuilding perspective. Topics will include

  • A high level overview of the system
  • What it means to change configuration in Drupal 8
  • How to deploy changes to another environment
  • How to import those changes and make them active
  • Advanced workflows using multiple environments
  • How to avoid potential problem areas
  • Where does Features fit in?

Note this will not be a coding session, it will focus on site building and workflow issues exclusively.
