This workshop will walk through migrating a simple Umbraco 7 site to V8.
We’ll dive into the key differences between the versions, updating code to work with the new APIs, and bringing our content / settings over. Once up-and-running, we’ll get started with Variants, changes to Models Builder and the Core APIs, and taking full advantage of some of the latest and greatest features like Content Apps.
Finally we’ll look at some more complex migration examples like Vorto => Variants, and work we can do on our sites now to be ready for a migration in future!
