Doctor, Will My Drupal 7 Commerce Site Survive the Upgrade?


Slides for this talk:

Commerce 2.x (the Drupal 8 version) has come a long way since last year. It's ready for production.

This wasn't the case when I migrated my Drupal 6 Ubercart site to Drupal I'm curious now, especially since upgrading from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9 will be much easier.

I wonder:

  • How hard is it to go from Commerce 1.x to Commerce 2.x?
  • How far along has Commerce Migrate come?
  • What is included in Commerce itself now?
  • How do I port my custom functionality (and do I need to)?

I'm going to explore these questions and share my experiences.

To benefit the most from this session, you should have some development experience. Previous e-commerce and Migrate experience is a plus. A working understand of Drupal 8 and OOP concepts will also help.

You'll hopefully learn how to avoid making counterproductive architecture decisions while building your Commerce 2.x store and get a head start in understanding the concepts.
