  • Paola Garcia Cardenas

The goal of this session is to introduce essential tools to get started with a Drupal 8 project. Everyone, from project managers to site builders would benefit from learning about the importance of these tools. Some tools include Composer, Docker containers and GitHub. We will go over these tools, what they are and how they work and interact with each other to create a local environment to start developing.

Attendees will:

  • Develop a basic understanding of how Git and Composer work
  • Start a new project using drupal-composer/drupal-project
  • Install new modules and upgrade to new versions of Drupal with Composer.
  • Fork and clone a GitHub repository, and use Docker and Composer to run a local environment
