Released: March 3, 2017
Certificate: Finish lessons and pass the quiz with 70%
This series will cover the modern tools and techniques available to Drupal site-builders that have replaced the old standards like FTP and even Drush Make.
We'll use tools like Composer, Drush, Git, and Configuration Management and see how they all 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!
