This session demystifies decoupled Drupal at various critical points in the stack, including API consumers, the Drupal web services layer, and underlying Drupal functionality. In the process, we will learn about the most important changes in both core and contributed modules that offer long-requested features such as file upload support and improved image support.
We'll cover what you need to know about decoupling Drupal 8.6, how to ensure the best performance for your consumers, and how the Acquia platform supports decoupled Drupal architectures, including thorough support for Node.js deployments in the form of build artifacts.
In the course of this session, we will investigate the following topics:
- An introduction to decoupled Drupal concepts
- Supported features in Drupal's web services
- Emerging best practices in decoupled Drupal
- New features for decoupled Drupal practitioners in Drupal 8.6
- The Acquia ecosystem for decoupled Drupal
- Working with the Acquia platform for decoupled Drupal
- Case studies: Acquia customers successfully decoupling Drupal
- Epilogue: Decoupled Drupal improvements in upcoming releases
This session is geared toward Drupal and front-end developers, IT and QA practitioners, directors of technology, chief technology officers, technical decision-makers, and others interested in how decoupled Drupal affects their digital ecosystems. Though a general understanding of Drupal, web services, and the Acquia platform is presumed, this session offers something for everyone.
