Features Explained for Humans

Drupal 8 and its great CMI capabilities are on the way, but in the meantime we’re still using Drupal 7 which means using Features. It’s never too late to learn how to manage your site’s configuration using Features. All the cool kids are doing it, and doing it well. Let’s talk about how.

We’re going to cover quite a bit of ground, but I’ll break things down along the way. I encourage anybody who has or is interested in a code-based deployment scenario with Drupal to attend.

Learning Objectives & Outcomes: 
  • Breakdown the basic concepts of the Features module
  • Demonstrate how to create and manage Feature modules
  • Highlight best practices for architecting Feature modules
  • Discuss best practices for committing and deploying Feature modules code changes
