Ruling Drupal 8 with #d8rules

By Josef Dabernig

Learn how Drupal 8 Rules can help you automate powerful backend capabilities.

Have you ever dreamed of automating your Drupal site? Wanted to send out an email automatically when a specific user logged in? Automatically updated a Block on the Frontpage after the 10,000th user has visited the site? 
All of this is possible with Drupal 8 Rules. This session will take you through real examples of how Rules for Drupal 8 is so much better and will change the way we build sites. We will look at: 

  • How the new Drupal 8 Core APIs for Entities, Plug-Ins, Conditions, Context and Actions allow for much nicer Rules integration 

  • How you can easily write your own Events, Conditions or Actions for Rules 

  • Which Contrib Modules already pledged support of Drupal 8 Rules 

The Webinar Covers

  • How Rules works

  • The status of Rules for Drupal 8

  • How to write Plug-Ins for Rules
