Hi all,

Save the date to join us on Wednesday 27 February 2019 at the Bandwidth Barn in Woodstock for the next Drupal Meetup.

Topic: Migrating to Drupal 8 - the why, the when and the how.

Charles will be making a rare, (temporary) migration from his Deep South Kommetjie hideaway to talk about migration in Drupal 8. His talk will cover the following topics:

- Introduction to migration in Drupal 8, and why it’s important to anyone with a Drupal 7 or Drupal 6 site.
- Migrate concepts and terminology.
- A brief breakdown of the different types of migrations.
- How to prepare for a migration.
- Migration demonstrations (time permitting): Non Drupal to Drupal and Drupal to Drupal migrations
- When to upgrade your Drupal 7 sites, and D7 and D8 EOL.
- Migrations and upgrades in a post D7 world.

If you have any interesting projects you might want to share with the group, we will have a slot afterwards to do so.

Parking is available behind the building or in the basement parking garage. Speak to security to get in, as the bell sometimes breaks.

To help us with catering arrangements for the meetup, please be sure to Un-RSVP if something pops up and prevents you from attending.

See you then!
