How I'm migrating JeffGeerling.com from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8
Presented by Jeff Geerling
After putting off an upgrade for many years, I finally decided to upgrade my personal website, JeffGeerling.com, from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8.
This website got its start as a static HTML website generated by a Java application, Thingamablog, back in 2004. Then I manually migrated content from that blog generator into Drupal 6. I upgraded the Drupal 6 site to Drupal 7, and migrated content from a couple of my other Drupal blogs into the Drupal 7 site.
And now, while also live streaming the entire process, I'm performing an upgrade migration from Drupal 7 to 8.
I'll mention how the process has gone (so far—work in progress!), what kind of pitfalls to watch out for, and how you can profit from all the work I've done—it's all open sourced for you to see, and documented on my YouTube channel!
