Redefine your Drupal 8 development using Drupal Console

The Drupal Console is a suite of tools run from a command line interface (CLI) to generate boilerplate code and interact with a Drupal 8 installation. From the ground up, it has been built to utilize the same modern PHP practices which were introduced in Drupal 8.

The goal of this session is to provide a complete understanding on how to use Drupal Console to speed up the Drupal 8 site building.

Drupal 8 is more technically advanced when compared to earlier versions. Writing a module involves a lot of understanding about coding pattern. There are also a lot of things you need to know and do just to get started building a new module. These tasks can be repetitive and tedious and can therefore create opportunities for errors. Fortunately, a lot of the new code can be generated automatically using Drupal Console.

During this session, attendees will learn:

  • What is the Drupal Console?.
  • Why should you care about Drupal Console?.
  • How to install and use Drupal Console.
  • How to develop integrations for Drupal Console (custom commands for contrib modules).
  • How to use Drupal Console to learn Drupal 8.
