Any Content Site can be Migrated to Drupal: I'll show you How

Presenter(s)

  • Jorge Diaz

Do you know that if your website runs in Drupal, it is like if it were guaranteed and maintained by 100,000+ developers, web architects and security specialists from all around the world? That is like 8-times the “Apple 1” building (yes, the huge circled one in Cupertino, California) full of people taking care that your website runs smoothly and securely. For sure the website owners at NASA, WhiteHouse.gov, Tesla.com, Le Figaro, the Australian Government and more than a million other websites know it.

That's because they all use Drupal.

So, have you ever had doubts if your website could be ported or migrated to Drupal? 

In this session, Jorge Diaz from Evolving Web, will present how 5 completely different websites were migrated (and even integrated) to/with Drupal. He will go into detail from the original legacy website to the final and end product.

What will you learn from this session

While you will have a specific section for Q&A at the end of the presentation, you will certainly learn:

  • The process to migrate any content website into Drupal 9. Step by step.
  • How real life projects, indeed, were executed to complete the migrations.
  • The most popular modules involved.
  • How most complex website structures are migrated.
  • How to run a content freeze if it is needed, or how to do a parallel migration while a legacy site is live and content is still being produced.
  • How to estimate a Drupal 9 migration project.

If you have questions about your site and want to bring it up to the public during the presentation, we would love to show everyone how it could be migrated, too.
