From D7 to D8: My experience (DrupalDayMurcia2015)

La primera release de Drupal 8 está a la vuelta de la esquina y muchos desarrolladores ya han iniciado sus proyectos con esta última versión de nuestro CMS favorito.
Como profesionales debemos dar un paso adelante y superar la curva de aprendizaje una vez más para adaptarnos a nuevos conceptos, usar nuevas herramientas, etc.. En definitiva dejar atrás una forma de hacer las cosas con Drupal 7 y empezar una nueva etapa con Drupal 8.

El objetivo de esta charla será aportar mi corta, pero intensa, experiencia trabajando con mi primer proyecto real en Drupal 8. Desde un punto de vista práctico y concreto, intentaré aportar qué herramientas, fuentes de información o conceptos me están siendo de gran ayuda para afrontar la curva de aprendizaje de Drupal 8. De este modo busco aportar mi granito de arena y facilitar a otros, que como yo, han iniciado o están a punto de iniciar el viaje fascinante de dejar de desarrollar en Drupal 7 y empezar a hacerlo en Drupal 8.
