This class covers the modern tools and techniques available to Drupal site-builders. We'll use tools like Composer, Drush, Git, and Configuration Management
We'll see how all these tools work together to make your Drupal 8 site development and management process faster, more efficient, and less error-prone
Specifically, we'll talk about how to use Composer to build a site locally as well as on a production server, and how to use Configuration Management to develop locally, and then push final changes to a production server. While building a site with Composer, we'll use the new official Drupal.org packagist repo.
I got back into Drupal about a year before Drupal 7 was released, so I built a couple of sites in Drupal 6. Then in January I completely switched over to D7 when it was released. Because I decided to make the switch right away, I was running into a lot of bugs/issues that hadn't been resolved yet. So, I started to make videos helping other people with the problems I found.
With the videos I made, I realized that I had shown some solutions, but people still had a lot of questions about edge cases. That was when I saw the light, and had the idea to put together series of short videos covering different topics. This format allowed me go in-depth with each module. I'm glad to be sharing these videos on OSTraining!
