Future-Proof your Drupal 7 site

At the last DrupalCon Dave Reid had a session on what decisions you can make now on your current or new Drupal 7 sites to make transitioning to Drupal 8 easier:

  • What field modules can I use that work the same as Drupal 8?
  • What WYSIWYG editor should I use?
  • How can I start preparing to migrate my existing Drupal site to Drupal 8?
  • What kinds of modules can I use so I don't have to retrain my editors and administrators when we move to Drupal 8?
  • I'll also cover some basic concepts for those of you writing Drupal 7 modules that you can do right now to better prepare yourself for writing modules in Drupal 8.
