You Are Here: Mapping the Most Magical CMS on Earth

Lisa McCray

In this session we’ll map out how the parts of Drupal 8 work together by examining how Drupal is like Walt Disney World!

Having an accurate mental model of a complex system helps you work more effectively. Basing the model on a fun and friendly place like Walt Disney World makes it both more entertaining and easier to remember.

Topics covered will include:

What’s a web framework anyway?
What do we mean when we say “core” and what does it do?
How do modules and themes relate to Drupal core?
What parts of Drupal came from Symfony, and what does that mean?
What’s the connection between Drupal and trash cans at the Magic Kingdom?
If you’re new to Drupal, want a better understanding of the various components that make up Drupal, or just want to know what a theme park “weenie” is, this session will help you faster than you can say Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
