Configuration Workflow Automation
Watch the session video here.
Configuration management has only gotten more complex as Drupal 8 has matured. With Config 2.0 going full speed ahead, some improvements are coming. Unfortunately, our dream of being able to save configuration directly to files won't happen, and the community has created complex workflows to work around the problem of storing configuration in the database.
But, the workflow has been automated for you in Contrib.
The crux is that Drupal must create and update database schema during configuration import. My answer? Automatic configuration import and export when you need it, and only when you need it with a small development module.
Come talk configuration automation with me, and lets talk through the future of config in Drupal 8. You'll leave the session with a more detailed understanding of the steps in configuration management and a tool that will save you time on every site build.
