Commerce 2.x: Lessons learned

Commerce 2.0 is the result of a two and a half year development process. It removes the need for over half of the most popular Commerce 1.x contrib modules, mainly through better architecture and a better understanding of needed features. What did we learn along the way?

  • How we leveraged core APIs, and helped build them
  • How we chose which battles are worth fighting
  • How we optimized for developer happiness
  • Where it went right and where it went wrong
  • How many laptops were stolen, lost, and destroyed along the way.

After this session you will have a better overview of how Drupal 8 can help you write better applications, how Commerce 2.x can help you create better eCommerce sites, and how you can be a better developer in general.
