This session was presented by Mike Anello.

Even if you’re only casually acquainted with Drupal 8, you probably know that the core upgrade path to Drupal 8 has been completely rewritten from the ground-up, using many of the concepts of the Migrate and Drupal-to-Drupal migration modules.

Using the new core Migrate modules, it is possible to migrate much of a Drupal 6 (or Drupal 7) site to Drupal 8 with a minimum of fuss. But, the core “Migrate upgrade” is similar to previous Drupal core upgrade paths – there are no options to pick-and-choose what is to be migrated – it’s all-or-nothing.

This session will demonstrate how to create and run a simple custom content migration from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8. The workshop will include an overview of migration concepts, a discussion of how each module fits into the overall process, code samples, as well as a live (danger!) demo of the migration in action.
