Code and DevOps

This track is focused on developers and the back-end technologies to deal with today’s and future challenges. With the coming release of Drupal 8, as well as emerging Web technologies, preparation is essential. These sessions will help you learn how to deliver effective solutions to meet these needs.


Embrace the “Drupal Way”. It won’t give you abs or make you a millionaire (well…), but it can make writing custom Drupal code a reasonable endeavor. Drupal provides you, the developer, tools to solve your problems.

Want decoupled and maintainable code? Write a module and keep that logic out of your theme.

Focuses on Drupal 7 with some Drupal 8.

This session will cover:

  • What are modules
  • Why your code should go in modules
  • What makes up a module
  • What is the hook system
  • Resources
  • Questions
  • Write a module
