When bringing data into Drupal, do not settle for faithfully copying the source. Make the Drupal version better than the original!
The Migrate API in Drupal 8+ is a robust, flexible way for bringing data into Drupal. That includes building a new Drupal site based on an existing site (other system or earlier version of Drupal). It also includes recurring data imports (feeds).
This session looks at several examples: what can be done and how to do it with the Migrate API:
- Use Editor styles
- Structure unstructured content
- Update links in body text
- Update from Drupal 7 Media
The presenter is one of the co-maintainers of the Migrate API (a.k.a. the migration subsystem in Drupal core).

Anyone who has thought about building a web site can appreciate the "what can be done" part. It helps to have familiarity with content editing and/or site building in Drupal.
The "how to do it" parts of the talk are aimed more at developers.
