Automating Migrations to Cascade CMS


Transitioning to a new content management system can be a hassle, especially when it's time to migrate all that content.

William & Mary web developer Sean Flynn talks about the process of programmatically moving content into Cascade - identifying the content you need to migrate, finding import documentation, writing CasperJS scripts to scrape old content, and importing it into Cascade via the API.

The presentation will cover W&M Advancement's specific transition process and technologies, but is intended for a general audience.
