Development & Performance
Experience level: 

Drupal 8 is coming, and with it a whole new era of Drupal development. Drupal 8 modules will be very different than in the past: Object-oriented design, Plugins, Services, unit testing... all these new big words.

While the entirety of Drupal 8 obviously cannot fit into an hour or two, the important parts can. This session will offer a tour of Drupal's new basic architecture, followed by a walkthrough of a for-reals Drupal 8 module. Along the way we'll discuss new best practices, guidelines, functionality, and the benefits they bring.

Slides are available online, as is the sample code from this session.
