We've done a major overhaul of the tutorials in our Drupal 8 configuration management series, re-recording video tutorials, adding written tutorials to complement videos, correcting errors, and adding new information.

We're happy to announce a new kind of series on Drupalize.Me which provides a project for you to practice the skills you've learned in Drupal site building, theming, and module development. Our free Hands-On Exercises: Movie Project provides you with wireframes and customer requirements for a movie review site. Each exercise in the series has you progressively build the site according to the specifications. To help you along the way, each lesson also lists some tutorials and learning resources that will show you what kind of knowledge you...

New tutorials covering Drupal 8's plugin API, annotations, and Drupal console were recently added.

It’s hard to believe, but it has been 1 year since Drupal 8.0 was released to the world. We’re celebrating Drupal 8’s first birthday on November 19th by giving FREE access to our full Drupal 8 Migration Guide over the celebration weekend! This Saturday, November 19th through Monday, November 21st you can learn how to use the new core migration system to upgrade your Drupal site or import content from external sources. It’s time to get using Drupal 8!

When we were considering switching to the Pantheon hosting platform, one of the features that made us confident in our decision is what they call Multidev.

A lot of work from those initiatives is now part of Drupal 8. Not everything got in though, and as time moves on some priorities for new work will always shift.

Drupalize.Me trainer Amber Matz attended this year's Open Hardware Summit in Portland and reports back on what she took away from the event.

In part 4 of this series on object-oriented PHP from KnpUniversity, we'll explore static methods, namespaces, exceptions, and traits. Getting a handle on these concepts will not only help you with PHP app development, but will also help you understand what's going on under the hood of Drupal 8.

It's that time again. October 5th brings the second minor version of Drupal 8 since moving to a semantic versioning release schedule. We've taken the time to dig through the change records and release notes (in order to make sure our tutorials stay up to date) and we want to share some of the new features and functionality you can look forward to when you upgrade to version 8.2.

More and more people are getting excited about working with Drupal 8. We’ve been working full-speed to put together the most accurate Drupal 8 tutorials, as well as keeping them up to date, as Drupal 8 changes every 6 months. I wanted to give an update on where we are with our Drupal 8 material and give you a look at what to expect over the coming 3 months from our team.
