Alex Pott on Configuration Mangement CMI (deep dive with coding) at Drupalcon Barcelona 2015

The session starts with an overview of how configuration management fits in to Drupal 8 before becoming a technical dive into the features it gives the developer. Answering questions like "What is a configuration entity?", "What's a schema?" and "Optional configuration, what's that?" the session will give the audience technical information on how to use the system. The session concludes with the advanced topic of configuration dependencies and how they are used to make Drupal 8 robust and awesome.
