Published on

Drupal 7 is a brilliant content management platform, but not without limitations. You'd often find site builders, developers and project managers struggling with its pain points like deployment--which can be a real nightmare if not performed correctly and not being able to use the same block in two regions.

In this webinar, we have touch based with various pain points that hit us on a day-to-day basis while working with Drupal 7 and introduced the features and improvements of Drupal 8 that will help you overcome these pain points and make your life easier.
