Looking at core and contrib modules for Drupal 8, you may be wondering "where did the code go?" Drupal 8 has removed many of the "info" hooks that were found in your module file and converted them to plugins.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss how plugins work and how to upgrade your module to Drupal 8 if it used one of the hooks that's been converted to a plugin. Topics covered will include:
• Essentials of implementing your own plugin if your module previously used an “info” hook
• An explanation of plugin terminology and different ways plugins can be discovered
• Examples of code from Drupal 7 and where the very similar code lives in Drupal 8
• How to avoid implementing hooks by mistake when writing a function in your modules
