Our First Drupal 8 Site

When Drupal 8 presented itself last fall, we knew we didn’t want to wait until Drupal 7 reached end of life before getting our hands dirty. We acknowledged Drupal will never stop progressing and decided to jump right in with Drupal 8 by building our new sites on 8. Here we will talk about the building of the first Drupal 8 site in our department, the differences we discovered between 7 and 8 as well as what we liked more and what we like less. 

Using BigPipe and Refreshless to make our site fast!

Drupal 8 has two incredible new modules that help deliver your site faster than ever before. In this session we will go over what these two modules are, why they work well together and how to use them. We will wrap up with a demo of a BigPipe and refreshless site loading in comparison to a vanilla Drupal 8 and Drupal 7 site with the same content. Prepare to be amazed!
