Configuration Management: theory and practice

Speakers:

Abstract: 

Configuration Management is one of the revolutionary features in Drupal 8. It is a life-changing opportunity for site builders, who can get rid of the database-based workflow at last. But it has significant implications for developers too.

Developers often want to use Configuration Management outside its intended use case. New workflows and practices have to be established. We'll see some examples from real projects, and outline a list of possible future improvements that can make Configuration Management better suitable for the developers' needs.
