While Drupal is utterly amazing in many many ways it is not the obvious choice to power web services that require tens of thousands of concurrent connections. Swifto is a real time labor services purchasing business that needs to match thousand of service providers with tens of thousands of customers, using a wide variety of clients.

Lior Kesos, will review the vision of Drupal 8 for improved web services and then showcase some methodologies and use-cases that can be used right now with Drupal, Views 3, Node.js, and MongoDB. He will review which services are delivered from Drupal: content creation, editing, updating, deleting, registration, authentication, flag changes, and taxonomy rebuild.

Attendees will learn:
• How Drupal can be the common backend for a wide variety of clients such as: mobile, tablets, widgets, toolbars, HTML5, flash
• How to integrate Drupal for content creation, editing, updating, and deletion of a large ad hoc content cache, in MongoDB, via a node.js API without using Drupal for content delivery.
• How Views 3 can use a Node.js API for pluggable query objects
