Entity storage, the Drupal 8 way


Drupal 8 comes with a completely revamped Entity storage layer allowing to attach new data and behaviors to entities in a very easy way. After introducing the very interesting theory behind the new system, we will see some working code examples showcasing the new Entity Storage API. We will cover:

  • entity type definition
  • field definition
  • entity field data querying
  • storage schema definition and updates

By attending this session you will learn how to leverage this knowledge to write powerful, portable and yet performant Drupal 8 code in a snap!
