Module Development8.9.x/9.0.x

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.
