Turning your Drupal websites into a digital experience

It's about time to consider your update from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 or 9. What can you expect from this update? How can you organize your Drupal migration in the best possible way?

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Evolution of content types between Drupal 7 and 8/9
    The Content Types got a big upgrade in Drupal 8. As a developer you have a lot more dynamic possibilities than in Drupal 7.
  • How paragraphs and layout builder give more options to marketers
    More marketing with less development. Drupal 8 works with paragraphs and Drupal 9 introduces a new layout builder. That allows digital marketers to build landing pages faster and easier without the support of a web developer.
  • Mobile first: say goodbye to desktop
    Mobile web development has grown revolutionarily in recent years. For that reason, Drupal 8 is made for development with a mobile first approach. Drupal 7 was still closer to the traditional desktop development.
  • Object Oriented Programming
    New Drupal developers learn Drupal faster than ever. Drupal 8 contains less specific programming methods, which means that a developer mostly just needs to find his way around the features.
  • Drupal 8, Drupal 9, Drupal 10. A bright future.
    Drupal 9 is already here. Can you simply make the jump from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9 without Drupal 8 as an intermediate step? And what about the external components such as PHP and Symfony? Nick shows and clarifies the Drupal roadmap for the following years.
