As part of the efforts to get Drupal “off the island”, the Community started adopting Composer. Now, with the Composer Support in Core Initiative, the adoption has become wider.
Although it's a great tool, starting with Composer can be intimidating and even problematic if you lack some basic knowledge. During this session, we will discuss the basics and not so basics of composer, including:
Creating a composer project
Adding dependencies to your project
Using composer repositories

You will leave this session with the confidence to use and solve issues when working with Composer in your day-to-day tasks.
