For most Drupal Developers and users, the idea of moving a project from one major version of Drupal to another can be daunting, with modules and themes having to being changed significantly or rebuilt completely, and data being migrated from the old site to the new one.
This was no more so than the move from Drupal 7 to 8, but luckily this has changed for Drupal 9 and an upgrade can be done with minimal changes and not a data migration in sight!
In this talk, we'll look at some of the changes to Drupal's tools and processes that have made this possible, and how to move your Drupal site to Drupal 9.
