Intro to Drupal 8 Vocabulary

by Tara Arnold
September 22, 2015

To the Drupal developers getting started with Symfony, there's a whole new set of vocabulary words we need to learn. In this short SlideShare presentation, I cover a few of the key things you need to know about the new terminology in Drupal 8 including: 

  • YAML
  • Composer
  • PSR-0
  • Dependency Injection
  • Service Containers
  • Routing

Review this presentation and you'll be one step closer to getting started with Symfony2 and Drupal 8! Also, be sure to check out Mediacurrent's SlideShare Resources for more Drupal goodness.

A big shoutout to the guys at Cross Functional who taught the DrupalCon Portland training course where I originally learned all about Symfony2 and Drupal 8! (Ryan Cross, Geoffrey Robers, and Piers Warmers.)
