My first Drupal 8 site was/is, like most of yall will find out, crucial to learning how to "Drupal". In this post, I'm going to replay some of the questions I had as I started looking at the requirements of a new site and the answers I found to those questions.

  • How Do I Start a Drupal 8 Site Build
  • Drupal 8 Configuration Management... How do I use it, and what is it good for?
  • So There are some Things that have changed in Drush 8...
  • What is an Update Process for a Drupal 8 Site?
  • Writing custom code? Module Basics in Drupal 8.
  • How do I Migrate Data in Drupal 8?
  • I've Got a Custom Page for My Drupal 8 Site... How?
  • Well !@#$... drupal_js_add, drupal_css_add, css/js in the info file are gone!

Continuous Integration Efforts Get Easier with Drupal 8

The following is a repost of an article I did for Promet Source.

Drupal 8 features unit level testing which will improve Promet's Continuous Integration practices.

At MidCamp (Midwest Drupal camp), I found out a really fascinating thing about Drupal 8: Support for PHPUnit is going to be part of the base distribution. This means a great deal to Solutions Architects and Developers at Promet because we have been striving to integrate automated tests into our build. Perhaps you remember from my talks or previous posts, number four of my 10 Principles of Continuous Integration is "Self-Testing Build". This makes Drupal a much more sought-after platform for shops looking to fully embrace Continuous Integration.
