Configuration as Dependency: Managing Drupal 8 Configuration with git and Composer

Drupal 8 provides a robust configuration management system which represents a paradigm shift from previous versions of Drupal.  It's now easier than ever to represent your configuration in code and manage it with source control.  However, that may not be enough.

This session will propose a new strategy for thinking about Drupal 8 configuration, treating it as just another dependency, managed the same way code dependencies are managed with Composer.

We'll cover:

  • Drupal 8 configuration management overview
  • New ways of managing your git repository
  • Composer and Drupal Console
  • Drupal 8 multisite considerations


Audience Level: 
Intermediate (install and configure modules/themes)
Drupal 8

This session will provide an overview of Drupal 8 configuration management.  However, it might be helpful if you have a basic understanding of how Drupal 8 manages configuration.

Additionally, a basic understanding of git is beneficial, specifically in the areas of branches.
