Migrating from V7 to V8

Let's explore exactly what is involved in migrating a simple Umbraco V7 site over to V8, and how we can start to take full advantage of what the latest and greatest version has to offer.
While walking through the migration steps we'll look closer at the fundamental differences between the 2 versions; from getting started with Variants, changes to Models Builder and the Core APIs, and the introduction of Content Apps.
Finally, we'll touch upon the current state of V8 and the package eco-system - including the work that's needed from the community to ensure the must-have packages are ready for use in our sites.
This session promises to be on the bleeding edge of Umbraco as we sail through uncharted waters...
