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 8 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 Drupal 8 site ready for data import.
