Speakers:

Abstract: 

In this session I'll give you an overview what changed so far in Drupal 8 in regards to the Search eco-system. We will talk about Search API, Apache Solr, Facet API and other related modules.

Over the course of the last years I've been heavily involved in how Search in Drupal 8 should take form and what needed to change to use the new API's and best practices in the revised Search API module. In this presentation I hope to give you some guidance what is still pending and what already was done. I will also try to explain what effort it takes to push and move such projects.

Websites you should build to understand Drupal better

Speakers:

Abstract: 

A very wide range of websites can be built with Drupal: from content based sites and APIs, to e-commerce and intranet portals. However this flexibility comes with a price: it also means that it might take long time for an individual to acquire well rounded knowledge of site building practices and contrib modules. This presentation is aimed towards people looking to expand their Drupal knowledge. I will talk about specific types of websites you can build as an exercise, that will help you understand key aspects of Drupal site building and important contrib modules.
