Before we can learn to write a custom migration, we need some sample data and a destination site for that data.
In this tutorial we'll obtain some source data to work with and configure our Drupal destination site by creating the necessary content types and fields to accommodate the source data. Then we'll look at the data that we'll be importing and start to formulate a migration plan.
By the end of this tutorial you'll have some source data and an empty but configured destination Drupal site ready for data import.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
