Don't let moving the content over be an afterthought, either.

Answer your questions to the best of our ability! Feel free to ask them in the comments below or ask us directly, and we'll try to incorporate it into the session.
Learning Objectives & Outcomes:
Have confidence in your ability to use Drupal 8's core Migrate module to bring in content from Drupal datases, other databases, and flat files.
We might even throw in a little Python-powered preparation of decade-old HTML if you're all of hardy constitutions, but mostly we'll be covering how Drupal 8 gives you the tools to get content into your beautifully constructed Drupal 8 site.
