Looking at core and contrib modules for Drupal 8, you may be wondering "where did the code go?". Drupal 8 has removed many of the "info" hooks that were found in your module file and converted them to plugins.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss how plugins work and how to upgrade your module to Drupal 8 if it used one of the hooks that's been converted to a plugin. Topics covered will include:

Internet usage has exploded worldwide over the last decade. More than one third of today’s world population has internet access. In fact, as of 2014, the number of internet users worldwide was 2.92 billion, up from 2.71 billion in the previous year. This shows that the ability to provide fully translated content to users is more important than ever. Translated content can help you to better market your brand in new regions, and establish your website as an international authority on its subject matter.

Drupal 8 contains a highly flexible and sophisticated structured data engine built into core - the Entity API. With the core tools available inside the Admin UI, it is possible to create and manage very robust and complete sites. However, the Entity API can also be easily extended to create custom entities, and that is what we are going to in this webinar.

Today’s technology landscape is riddled with constantly evolving web platforms, exciting new technologies, and stubborn legacy systems. It’s easy for business teams, who are rapidly creating content for these many sites and channels, to lose sight of what content is created and where it lives.

As a result, data and content are locked in back-end systems across organizations. And, because it’s difficult and expensive to connect technologies, teams end up wasting time and resources in efforts to publish that content on the web.
