Building Drupal 8 sites with Composer and Configuration Management

This is a session I gave at DrupalCon New Orleans. There have been a number of changes to the "proper" way to use composer, and I've learned a lot since then. So, I'm excited to have the chance to present this again with an updated slide deck/demo reel!


Basically, the session will focus on building and maintaining a site with Composer, as well as how to use Configuration Management to push changes from a local environment up to a production one.


We'll use Composer, Drush, Git and Configuration Management and see how they all work together to make your Drupal 8 site development and management process faster, more efficient, and less error prone.


This session has also been updated to use the new official packagist repo since the Drupal Packagist repo is set to be deprecated in January.
