How structured content and the Paragraphs module reignited my Drupal flame

The Paragraphs module is relatively new to the Drupal scene, but has picked up steam lately for those of us who work on content heavy sites.  It allows us as developers and site builders to think about a new way to build our content types - one less reliant on being able to read the minds of our editors and content authors.  

This session will begin by going over what structured content is and why it's actually a lot easier to implement than it sounds.  In my personal experience working on "large scale Drupal" sites, implementing structured content via the Paragraphs module dramatically increased the flexibility that we were able to offer our editors for how they build their content at the same time that it shortened our development time for new features from days to minutes.

The second half of the session will be a run through of the Paragraphs module - how it works, how to think about it, and how to start using it.  I'll show several real world examples of how it's saved our development staff's soul when an editor wants to put some "new thing they found" in their content.
