Migration Strategy: How to Be a Resource for your Team

Presenters: lynne.walsh

Is your team gearing up to migrate a site into Drupal 8? In this presentation, I’ll walk through the steps I’ve taken to prep my developer for a Drupal 8 migration. Topics covered will include the following:

  • Factors that affect migration
  • Different migration methods and when to use each
  • What to look for when investigating a legacy database*
  • How to use your inventory findings to plan out your migration
  • Creating a field mapping spreadsheet.

Planning a migration may seem like a daunting task for your developer, but it doesn't have to be. Be a resource for your developer and help them work smarter, and faster. 
*This prep work can be done by a non-developer but may require an understanding of database sql queries.
