Learn How to Build Awesome Webforms

This beginner-friendly session will provide an overview of Drupal 8’s latest module, Webform 8.x-5.x, and its various features. In addition to the new features, the Webform module also includes OO design patterns, extendable plugins, and automated tests.

With the new and improved Webform module, developers can edit source code behind a form, site builders can build forms using a multitude of new form elements, and themers can design forms with more independence and creative authority.

This session begins with an introduction to the Webform module and takes attendees through everything from selecting form elements to exporting submissions.

Day: Friday (November 3)
Time: 8:30am – 11:30am

Shifting UX to the Editorial Experience

Although the look and design of any project is extremely important, it is equally important to construct efficient and easy-to-use UX, beginning with what lies beneath the surface, the code.

More clients are shifting their focus to improving the Drupal Administration UX. This beginner-level session will study Group Nine Media and how they’re improving the Drupal user experience.

The session will ask questions such as:
How is design/UX reversing to focus on the editorial experience?
What contrib modules currently enhance the editorial experience?
How can a better editorial experience be beneficial to a client?
Where is the future of editorial experiences and Drupal heading?

Day: Saturday (November 4)
Time: 9:00am to 9:50
