Backdrop LIVE is based upon an unconference model. Anyone can declare a topic up through the day of the event and the schedule is subject to change at any time. What would you like to talk about?

During this discussion we'll talk about the process for upgrading from Drupal (6 or 7) to Backdrop CMS, share experiences and answer questions.

John Romine has agreed to share his recent experiences with some upgrades and do a demo. 

If you have specific questions, feel free to post them here in the comments so that we can all come prepared with answers. 



I need to port a D7 site that makes heavy use of

  • paragraphs and ckeditor
  • subscriptions and mail_edit (I'm the Drupal author/maintainer)
  • forum_access (dito, apparently ported)
  • roleassign (dito, thanks for putting it into core :-))
  • fullcalendar
  • webform
  • a theme based on less and superfish

I have no experience with Backdrop yet, and I'm trying to estimate the required effort...
