Greg Boggs

Greg is an active volunteer and speaker in the Portland Drupal community. Greg has led the development of numerous, large-scale Drupal web applications, yet he considers his greatest achievement to be his open source contributions to Drupal 8. When he’s not speaking at local Drupal events, or helping nonprofits leverage new technologies, he’s trying to convince himself that he likes chamomile tea. 120 cups in and he’s still not sure if it’ll ever be a taste he acquires. He’s also an avid bicyclist and especially enjoys riding through Portland’s very rare, freak blizzards.

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.
