Drupal 8 Improvements for Developer Productivity: PHP, Symfony, and More

February 17, 2016 1:00 pm

It’s no secret: Drupal 8 simplifies the development process. With support for object-oriented web development, PHP, Symfony, and more, Drupal 8 has been architected for developer productivity and makes development easier than ever before.

In this webinar, learn how to setup the tools to make Drupal 8 and Symfony development that much easier. Ron Northcutt, Solutions Architect at Acquia, will review some simple use cases for each tool as a starting point. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of:

  • How to debug with Dev Desktop2, Xdebug, and PHPStorm as the IDE
  • Drush and Drupal Console: what they are and how to use them
  • The devel module and web profiler
  • The Acquia Log viewer Chrome extension

This webinar assumes that the viewer has PHPStorm and DevDesktop2 installed, is comfortable with basic command line tools, and has some prior experience with PHP code and Drupal modules. However, prior experience with Drupal 8 is not necessary. Register now to get up to speed with all of the new dev tools in Drupal 8!
