March 2017 Tutorial Updates

March was a busy month for us as we continue to work on producing the best Drupal 8 tutorials. We released new tutorials for developers of modules and themes alike.

Release Day: Breakpoints, Responsive Images, and Core Themes

This week, we've added 8 new tutorials to our Drupal 8 Theming Guide on breakpoints, responsive image styles, and core themes Bartik and Stark. In these lessons you will learn about breakpoints and media queries, and how Drupal uses these concepts outside of CSS files. We'll cover breakpoint configuration files and how to create one for your theme or module. Then, we'll dive into the Responsive Image module. We'll explore responsive image style configuration, popular responsive image use cases that you can solve with responsive image styles, and, step-by-step, how to create a responsive image style for a viewport-sizing use case. Finally, we have a pair of tutorials on Bartik and Stark. We'll take a look at these core themes, their purpose, and what you can learn from them.

Release Day: More Module Development Tutorials

We've got some new tutorials on Drupal 8 module development on the different kinds of menu links. We've also added a pair of tutorials on how to add an info file so that Drupal can recognize your module and how to define permissions for a module in Drupal 8. Our Drupal 8 Module Development Guide is ever-expanding; if you haven't checked it out lately, you might want to take a look. So far we've covered topics such as Plugins, Events, and Hooks as well as an assortment of other subjects.

New and Updated Tutorials: January-February 2017

We've been busy creating tutorials for you! Mostly we've been focusing on Drupal 8 module development, but we've also made updates to our Configuration Management and Drupal 8 Theming series. In addition, we have a fresh batch of Drupal 7 Hands-On Exercises using the Movie Project. Check out what we've published or updated in January and February of 2017.

Experimental Module Changes Coming in Drupal 8.3

Drupal 8.3 is still a few months away, coming April 5, 2017, but there are already some changes we can look at, most notably in the experimental modules. In December, 2 new experimental modules were added to core, and BigPipe was officially changed from a beta module to stable. The 2 new modules you'll find in 8.3 are Workflows and Layout. Let's take a peek at what these are all about.

Release Day: Extending Drupal 8 with Events

We just added tutorials on using Drupal 8's Event API. Learn what events are, how to subscribe to existing events, and how to dispatch new events.

Updated Tutorials: Configuration Management

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.

Release Day: Extend Drupal 8 with Plugins

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

Drupal 8 Is 1 Year Old

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!

The New Drupal 8 Initiatives

You may have heard of a variety of Drupal 8 initiatives during the development cycle leading up to Drupal 8.0.0 being released in 2015. These were officially recognized efforts to get a variety of big changes into Drupal 8, and included projects such as configuration management, Views in core, and multilingual improvements. 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.

Another Version 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.

Our 2016 Drupal 8 Tutorial Roadmap

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.
