NO CODE CONTENT MIGRATION ( D7 TO D8 )

This presentation will focus on a one-click approach to creating migrations in D8 from a CSV file without having to write any code. The no code content migration approach will be discussed using a new D8 module in the works: Contentin. 

The Contentin module dynamically registers a migration from CSV file with one click. Currently, a new helper module called Contentout is being used to produce the hierarchical CSV file (preserves field:subfield, multi-value fields, provides indexing, etc.) that the Contentin module can use to register migrations without writing any custom code.
