Upgrading Acquia.com from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8: The Developer Perspective

Upgrading Acquia from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 for Developers

Thinking of upgrading your website to Drupal 8, or using it for the first time on a new project? Are you a developer and not sure where to start? Let the lessons we learned be your guide.

Our development team recently faced a challenging project: upgrading Acquia.com from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 while simultaneously doing a total redesign.

During this preview into our development process, you’ll learn about:

  • Local setups
  • Configuration management
  • Composer
  • Translation
  • Paragraphs and site building
  • Migration

Join Acquia’s Adrianna Shukla, web operations manager, Nichole Frazier, a front-end developer, and Stephen Dix, a technical architect, as they talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly, and host a Q&A.
