Drupal 8 Development Workflow
If you're a developer watching the progression of Drupal 8, no doubt you've heard about the "Configuration Management Initiative" (CMI). If you haven't, CMI is a community effort to take all of the configuration stuff we used to store in the database in older versions of Drupal, and put it into code by default for Drupal 8. This functionality is absolutely critical to the daily operations of most Drupal shops. While almost everybody is excited about this new functionality, most of us are relatively clueless about how to actually use it. Having just relaunched our website (http://lastcallmedia.com/blog) on Drupal 8, Last Call Media has already gone through a full site build using CMI, and we'd like to share the workflow we used, as well as the tips and tricks necessary to keep everything running smoothly.
