Running Drupal 7 code in Drupal 10

Session Category Development & Performance Room 158 Audience Advanced Speaker(s) Darren Oh Matt Glaman

This Sunday session will demonstrate how Retrofit for Drupal works and how to make your Drupal 7 code run in Drupal 10.

Drupal 7 is the most popular version of Drupal ever. Even after the release of Drupal 10, more sites run version 7 than any other version. One of the reasons so many sites are stuck on version 7 is that there is no automated path to port code written for version 7 to later versions. To help sites port their code to Drupal 10, Matt Glaman started the Retrofit project. Retrofit provides a compatibility layer for Drupal 7 code in Drupal 10.

Darren Oh has been contributing to Retrofit to support a client that does not want to commit to using Drupal 10 as their next platform, but needs to have that option if they don’t have a different platform ready when Drupal 7 becomes unsupported in 2025.

Coupled? Decoupled? Headed? Headless? What Does it All Mean?

Session Category Development & Performance Room 159 Audience Intermediate Speaker(s) Kyle Einecker

In an ever evolving web landscape, it's crucial to keep up with the latest trends and technologies. If you've ever found yourself scratching your head over terms like "Coupled," "Decoupled," "Headed", or "Headless" when it comes to Drupal, you're not alone. This session aims to demystify these concepts and provide a clear understanding of how Drupal fits into each.

Join us to gain a deeper understanding of the coupled, decoupled, and headless approaches in the context of Drupal. We'll explore use cases, and best practices, and share insights into how Drupal can empower dynamic modern experiences. Whether you're new to Drupal or an experienced developer, you're bound to discover new ways to harness the power of Drupal.

11:00 am to 11:45 am

Why contribute?

The more that people contribute, the stronger Drupal becomes. The more polished and refined the project is, the more job security we all have.

Why sprint?

It’s an excellent opportunity to connect with other contributors, help collaborate and brainstorm, and move the Drupal project forward. Contributing is a fantastic way to receive feedback and build skills while learning from those more experienced.

Not a coder or new to tech?

That’s great! It’s your turn to shine.

Not everyone who works on Drupal is a developer: Project Managers, Customer Service, and those who hold non-technical roles can all give back to the community. Code is important, but so are all the other parts.

We got you covered!

There will be mentors available for those who need a little help to get started.

We will make sure you stay caffeinated, fed, and hydrated.
