Modules Unraveled | Premium Drupal Video Tutorials for Sitebuilders
I'm releasing a new series today!!!!!
Over the last year, I've given a talk at DrupalCon, DrupalCorn Camp, and Drupal Camp Colorado all about using Composer and Configuration Management in Drupal 8. Those sessions were around 45 minutes, which is much too short to go in depth, and explain everything thoroughly.
Can you believe it?! There are just 50 days until the first session of DrupalCon New Orleans!
I'm so honored to have been selected to present Drush and Composer and Git - Oh My! (Advanced Site-building Tools and Techniques for Drupal 8) this year.
It'll be my first session at a DrupalCon, and I really can't express how excited I am!
Here's the issue
If you're using MAMP, you might have experienced an issue where a website loads just fine in the browser, but when you try to use a Drush command, you get an error like the following:
exception 'PDOException' with message 'SQLSTATE[HY000]  No such file or directory' in core/lib/Drupal/Core/Database/Driver/mysql/Connection.php:146
I just spent the last two days trying to find the best, fastest, easiest way to install Drupal 8 locally on my mac... I think I've done it!
Using the awesome power of Composer, Drupal Console, and Drush, I can simply type "composer install" and then sit back and watch my site be created, install, and open in a new window!
I'm going to write a more in-depth blog post soon, but I couldn't help but share it now. I'm just too excited!
In order to produce training and informational material on Drupal 8, I'd like to know what's keeping you from using Drupal 8 right now.
Please answer this ONE QUESTION survey to explain the biggest issue, concern or other reason you're not using it already.
If you're still using FTP to install modules, update Drupal or make any changes to your Drupal codebase... STOP. Right now!
Git is a version control system with incredible features, and in this series you'll learn the basics to get you up and running.
Git has, on several occasions, saved me from myself when I accidentally deleted, modified or updated a module, causing an error. Git allows you to easily roll back changes to your codebase with a single command.
If you're serious about building your Drupal site right, you'll find yourself looking into command line tools like Git and Drush.
If you don't work in the command line on a regular basis, that might be intimidating. Well, not any more!
This series is designed to be a primer on the command line basics, to get you comfortable enough with the command line that you can utilize command line tools without hesitation.
I've had a lot of requests for a series on Git, so I started to put one together. Well, when I started I thought, "I bet there are a lot of people who want to use Git, but don't actually use the command line much." So, I decided to add some command line basics to the beginning of the Git series, and when I was done, decided they could stand alone as their own series. So, here it is:
