About this video
Drupal 8 brings a lot of groundbreaking changes to its ecosystem, from basic architectural changes to functional ones. Understanding these changes is vital to you if you are trying to explore Drupal 8.
In this course, you will get a practical knowledge of Drupal 8, that means you can jump into any existing Drupal 8 website and understand how it is built and how it is put together. Finally, we will learn to launch a Drupal 8 website.
You’ll start off by setting up your development environment, enabling you to begin writing custom code for a Drupal-powered website through PhpStorm.
You will learn about configuration management and creating custom content types before exploring the HTML5 features included. Views were used on more than 80% of all Drupal 7 sites; now they are part of the Drupal 8 core. If you use views, you might build 10 different view displays with different filters, without knowing that a contextual filter would require only a single display.
You’ll see how to create reusable templates using PHP scripting and use plugins and develop simple plugins on your own.
Towards the end of this course, you’ll find out how to test, deploy, and monitor your application effectively.
