Migrating data to Drupal 7


We'll take an in-depth, technical look at the challenges of migrating external data into Drupal. Working from a live example, we'll use Drupal 7's Migrate module to pull data into a Drupal site.

This will be a technical session designed to help you solve your own data migration problems.

Topics will include:

  •     Migration strategies for Drupal 7.
  •     Why the Migrate module rocks.
  •     The Migrate UI.
  •     Preparing data for migration.
  •     Defining source data for migration.
  •     Defining target objects for migration.
  •     Migrating nodes, users and taxonomy terms.
  •     Handling Drupal fields.
  •     Extending Migrate module.
  •     Using Drush with Migrate.

The session will examine a real-world scenario involving an Oracle-to-Drupal migration.
