Leapfrog the Drupal Learning Curve & Architect the Perfect Solution in 3 Simple Steps

Submitted by Steve Purkiss on Sun, 09/10/2016 - 14:06

"Drupal has a steep learning curve" is something I hear time and again, however I feel this is a misguided perception and something we need to work towards changing - especially now focus is on the adoption journey. Learning how to 'Drupal' is actually incredibly easy - the trick is to understand exactly what Drupal is and how to mould it to your needs - this is what I'm going to show you how to do in three simple steps.

I am a big fan of Drupal Console, the CLI built on top of Symfony Console for use with Drupal 8. As well as the ability to generate skeleton code, Drupal Console has a heap of commands for a number of uses, routing, debugging, and now with the new field:info command you can gain an overview of what fields are on a site and where they are used.

"Talk is silver, contribution is gold"

It's the final day of sessions at the Real DrupalCon and these are the keynotes I've been waiting for! (click here for yesterday's blog if you missed it)

I say "keynotes" as in a departure from the norm there are two speakers today, both whom I've had the pleasure of seeing previously and both whom touch on subjects close to me -Contribution beyond source code in Drupal and Mental Health in Open Source.

Let's never do that again

Unlike when I was watching yesterday's Driesnote, I actually quite expected these sorts of words to come out of the mouth of Larry Garfield, aka @crell, long-time Drupal contributor and the reason I stayed up way too late last night after blogging so not strictly Day 2 but deserves a mention as was a superb, insightful session "Drupal in 2020".
