Migrate all the things!
This is a presentation I did for the 2013 Toronto DrupalCamp. Migrate allows you to bring content into your new Drupal site from a variety of data sources including past versions of Drupal. In this session we will talk about why you should consider using Migrate over other methods such as upgrading Drupal, using feeds, node export, copy and paste, etc. We will look at what data sources can be imported, how to create migration classes and where to find starter templates you can use to build your own custom migrations. At the end of the presentation we walked through my previous blog post for code examples and more detail. http://www.verbosity.ca/working-drupals-migrate-module EDIT: the prepareRow and prepare functions had their names inverted on the slide titles.
