drupal-project is now the officially-recommended starting point for Drupal 8 sites with Composer. In this session, I'll show you how to:

  1. Quickly spin up a new site with Composer and drupal-project
  2. Customize drupal-project to suit your particular needs
  3. Leverage post-install tasks to keep yourself DRY

The goals of the learnings from this session are to:

  1. Save time
  2. Follow best practices
  3. Make your development experience more enjoyable
  4. Look cool in the process

This session is for you if:

  • You've been wanting to try out Composer
  • You already use Composer but want to learn more about the best practices
  • You frequently spin up new sites, whether for module development, agency work, or for funzies
  • You're thinking about using a Drupal distribution or installation profile
  • You are a Composer expert, so you can heckle me and point out mistakes

I look forward to seeing you there! (Slides available here)
