Drupal 8 Migrate: Its Not Rocket Science

...But we'll do some live migrations against from NASA APIs, so we'll *make* it rocket science!

Migrate is now a core component in Drupal 8 and it's changed an awful lot from Drupal 7. Migrate is now simple and easy, requires a lot less code, and can be taught to do some amazing tricks. There's been a lot done about upgrading and migrating your Drupal 6 or 7 site so we won't cover that here. Instead, we'll cover some of the scary parts like writing custom migrate source, destination, and process objects; wandering through the jungle of the Drupal 8 Migrate contrib space (migrate_drupal_d8 and migrate_source_csv, for example); managing your custom migrations with CMI; and seeding your site with starting content using migrations! This session will be very configuration-heavy and code-intensive, with lots of live demos. (What could possibly go wrong?)
