There’s bad data everywhere, but nowhere is it more insidious than when you encounter it for the first time while trying to migrate a website. Bad data, in this case, is defined as any data that doesn’t conform to the expectations of the migrator and their code, whether that’s because of bad data entry, surprising contextual requirements, or historical changes in value patterns. It can come at you from a variety of directions and can have surprising origins.
If you run a business or other organization with any online presence at all, you’ve probably hit a point where you wondered why Drupal and WordPress are so important. Building a CMS-based website isn’t as simple as download-and-play. Savvy site owners know that it’s best to rely on the expertise of experienced web developers to implement the appropriate solutions. Hook 42 offers developers versed in Drupal 7, Drupal 8, WordPress, Gatsby and more.
Drupal 8 has a wonderful migration system that generally boils migrations into a particular entity type down into a single YAML file. This file specifies the data source, the output entity type, and how to process input fields and where in the entity they get stored.

We are bringing some of our colorful San Francisco Bay Area love to DC. We will be sharing our knowledge about planning and managing migrations, as well as core site building layout technologies. The most exciting part of the conference will be meeting up with our east coast Drupal community and government friends in person.
The Hook 42 team had a great time at Stanford Drupal Camp this weekend. Kristen and Aimee presented two sessions each and four other members of our team attended, Lindsay, K2 (Kristin), Marc, and Marc's 15 year old son Dean. It was the first Drupal camp experience for the extended team and they enjoyed the great topics, beautiful facilities, and the welcoming community. Many thanks to the Stanford Drupal community for hosting such a great event!
