Faster and Smarter Development with Drupal Console

By Jesús Manuel Olivas

Explore how Drupal Console can help you implement and take advantage of the modern PHP practices in Drupal 8.

Managing the increasing complexity of Drupal 8 can be a daunting task for anyone. Writing a module involves a lot of boilerplate code. There are also a lot of things you need to know and do, just to get started with building a new module. These tasks can be repetitive and tedious, and can therefore create opportunities for errors. Fortunately, a lot of the new code can be generated automatically using Drupal Console.

Drupal Console is a suite of tools that you run on a command line interface (CLI) to help you manage that complexity. During this webinar, we will explore how Drupal Console can help you implement and take advantage of the modern PHP practices introduced into Drupal 8.

The Webinar Covers:

  • How module development in Drupal 8 has changed

  • Ascertaining what is required to generate a Drupal 8 module

  • Developing faster and smarter with Drupal 8

  • Generating the code and files required by a Drupal 8 module

  • Interacting and debuging your Drupal 8 installation
