Migrating an entire website from a particular CMS, or even from Drupal 7, onto Drupal 8 can look like a huge task. Traditionally, if we decided to move a website to Drupal 8, we created 100 content types, with their 2000 fields or more, and each field had its own settings and properties. This consumed a lot of time and actual development, that genuinely required logic, got delayed.

But with the three contributed modules: migrate_tool, migrate_upgrade, migrate_plus; switching to Drupal 8 has gotten a whole lot easier. In this webinar, we take a look at how to use these modules to eliminate all the tedious work. We also share some the challenges we faced during site migration and how those were resolved. Join the webinar and become a pro at Drupal 8 migrations.
