Migrate is a powerful tool that has been in Drupal for some years. Now it is part of the core itself, and powers the migration path from D6 and D7 to D8. However Migrate is not just a tool to perform Drupal to Drupal migrations. In this session we'll learn a bit of history, how easy it is to upgrade nowadays from old Drupal versions to Drupal 8 and we'll learn to leverage the power of the Migrate API to perform more complex migrations, from other sites, other databases or even completely different sources like csv documents.
Following the presentation on migration from D7 to D8 we will expand the topic further to its logical next step: Drupal 9. This upgrade will be unlike any other you've seen in the past for Drupal, and we'll take time to answer questions like: What will it involve? When is it coming? When do we need to be ready for it and what can we do to prepare? You should leave the session with enough information to get the ball rolling no matter when your upgrade plans will take place.
