With Drupal 8 now in Beta (as of this blog post), it’s time to start digging in and getting familiar with the new structure. As a way to start teaching myself D8, I decided to convert a pretty simple module I created in D7 into a D8 module and I was surprised at how many basic D8 concepts it touched on. I wanted to share my work with everyone so that we can all get up to speed together.

Shameless self-promotion: I will be on the PHP Roundtable podcast February 22nd!  The show will cover GitHub, contributing to open source, and other related topics.  You can watch live or view the post-show recording on YouTube. 

Anyway, here’s this week’s roundup:


Colin O’Dell is a Lead Web Developer with Unleashed Technologies and has been with us since 2008. Colin has been developing websites since high school and he is a Magento Certified Developer. He recently sat down with us to discuss topics ranging from the Apple II-e to Symfony2.
