This month, Jay Epstein will be discussing "New Year - Relativity, Views and Theming Part 2"

In January 2018, Jay kicked off a slightly new direction of going back to Relativity basics and spinning up a new Drupal 8 site on Pantheon.
Here's what we accomplished in one hour:
1: Create a Pantheon account (or access if you already had one)
2: Navigate the UI
3: Hookup a SFTP program to manage code (I used WinSCP)
4: Spinup a brand new D8 site for our "About Me" site build
5: Load our Relativity base module recipe (8 modules)
6: Saw the result of loading a group of modules without having dependencies already present
7: Commit our code addition to GIT via the Pantheon dashboard
8: Delete Drupal's default content types
9: Added our own content types
a: Persona
b: Bio
c: Hobbies
d: Static Page
e: Work Experience
10: Deleted Drupal's default Body field on all content types and add our own Body fields with Relativity machine name control
11: Set Drupal's home page in configuration by using a URL alias

For February 2018 let's continue our build out by:
1: Adding new fields to each content type (using Relativity machine name control)
2: Establishing field groups for a nice horizontal UI
3: Creating entity references that will make our Persona content type the master.
4: Add some initial node content
5: Dive in and create some initial Views (relationships, contextual filters and grouping)
6: Understand and manage Block Visibility Groups

If that isn't enough. I may preview, if people want to see it, the demo and slides for my #FLDC18 proposed session on No Code Content MIgration, Drupal 7 -> Drupal 8.
