Session Spotlight: Best Practices for Coding with Drupal 8

Drupal 8 is the talk of the town and hopefully by Barcelona time, it can be the headliner. But with all of the excitement, there will also be changes that come with the new release. Drupal developers have grown used to using hooks throughout Drupal's history, but ‘times are changing’ as Joe Shindelar (eojthebrave) notes in his session about the new patterns Drupalistas will need to learn to make Drupal 8 work.

In Altering, Extending, and Enhancing Drupal 8 in room 117 on Tuesday from 11:00-12:00, eojthebrave will draw on his experience to help everyone in the audience leave with all the best practices for coding with Drupal 8. This session will provide the information needed to make informed decisions about how your custom code can, and should, talk to Drupal in order to uphold best practices and write modules that are easy to maintain and play well with others in a post hook world.

After drawing a large crowd at DrupalCon Los Angeles, this is a Coding and Development session you should make sure to add to your schedule!
