As Drupal 8 development marches forward, it is clear that the community is looking beyond its borders by integrating non-Drupal projects into core. However the current Drupal landscape, including Drupal 8, makes it difficult for module developers to benefit from third-party code in the same way that Drupal 8 core does. This presentation takes a practical look at the tools and techniques that module developers can use regardless of the Drupal version being used in order to accelerate development by leveraging code in the larger PHP ecosystem.
