The migrate module is now part of core! This means that migrate is no longer a secondary option when upgrading your sites to Drupal 8, but is in fact the preferred route for upgrading. In this session we will talk about differences between the new and old systems and discuss what options you have for migrating your data into Drupal 8.
The strategies we will cover range from beginner-level imporiting using the user interface, to mid-tier customization, and finish off with some talk of advanced cases that will require writing code. At the end of this session you will have the tools you need to help test the migration system and begin planning your migration to Drupal 8.
