The migrate module is now part of core! This means that migrate is no longer a secondary option when upgrading your sites to Drupal 8, but is in fact the preferred route for upgrading. The previous in-place “upgrade” process
has been removed from the system.
Find out what this means for your team and learn how to migrate Drupal 6 sites directly into Drupal 8 with little fuss by using the built-in user interface. Learn how to augment migrations with the new alter hooks, how to
code new templates (like the Drupal 7 templates that are now in-progress) and find out where familiar functions have moved in the new version.
