Namespaces? Symfony? YAML? Controllers? Routes? Annotations? So much to learn!

You sit down to craft your first Drupal 8 module and everywhere you look there is a new PHP/OOP concept to master. People are telling you to learn Symfony, get a book on objected orientated PHP and figure out namespaces, YAML, controllers and routes before you have even written your first line of Drupal 8 module code. Everywhere you turn there is something new to learn. That’s enough to make a person feel buried.

“I'm dreading switching from Drupal 7"

You search through the documentation and read one blog post after another to get started on creating your first Drupal 8 module. You are not sure if you are learning the right things, in the right order or what to do next. You soon realise that Drupal 8 is a huge remake of how Drupal works under the hood.

“But… now I’m being forced to transition and OOP is making me question if I can really hack it as a Drupal developer"

New skills are essential for your career but you’ve got deadlines to meet so don’t have time to burn. You don’t have time to waste searching for answers. You feel you are significantly reducing your potential as a Drupal developer if you can’t figure it out.

It would be great for your career if you could create custom Drupal 8 modules. But there is so much to learn first.

"Your way of teaching how to write things in PHP but the Drupal way is exactly my missing piece of the puzzle"

What if you didn’t have to master object orientated programming, Symfony components and the myriad of new tools before you even start? Imagine if you knew precisely how to create your first Drupal 8 custom module, step by step and could ship it by this time next week. And how great would it be if you picked up the essential new PHP concepts while creating it, rather than having to learn them all before.

It’s true that there are lot of new concepts in Drupal 8, but that doesn’t have to stop you.
