This month Jay Epstein will be presenting "Drupal 8 and Relativity: Building a web ecosystem - Part 2." Jay is sharing his latest incarnation of his Drupal Relativity model that he has perfected over several years. Relativity is even being used for several DrupalCamp sites, including Florida DrupalCamp 2017. This is the data model that transcends Drupal versions (i.e. you will be able to use it in Drupal 7, Drupal 8, Drupal 9, Drupal 10, Drupal 11 . . . Drupal n).

If you missed Part 1, take a look at the slides here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1r9ycNFgusN9bubA3MpqFbOzEy87fq6M1...

In Part 1 Jay covered:
• The definitions of an ecosystem and the required DNA
• The 2 sided logic of a main menu builder and master content type.
• How to define proper entity relation structure
• The importance of flattest possible Information Architecture
• The Relativity Vertical Master and the spin up version
• The concept of Features for consistent spin up and edge case development

For Part 2 he will explore:
• Mastering Drupal core as a site builder
• Fields, references, and multi-tier data relationships
• UI elegance and utilizing field states for logical thought input
• Name spaces and indexing
• Initial Views with multi-tier relationships
• Intro to Configuration management
