Shift Left Testing & Continuous Collaboration

jody / 8thom

Testing has become an integral part of Drupal development but often it's often only focused on technical aspects and implemented at the end of the project lifecycle. 

Shift left testing is the process of moving the testing phase left of its usual position in the delivery pipeline so that it occurs as close as possible to the build process. By proactively testing integrations early and often, you can isolate most defects sooner for faster remediation, resulting in more efficient projects with higher quality.

Getting Started with Module Development

mchampsee

This session is targeted to people who have experience as Drupal site-builders who are looking to get started with module development.

While there are many powerful contrib modules that do some amazing things, sometimes you will have a unique problem for which a contrib module hasn't been developed for. Ever run into a module that didn't quite do what you wanted it to do? Wish that a dropdown were checkboxes instead or vice versa? You can write a custom module that can fix those things.
