Innovation labs are rapidly becoming one of the most prevalent phenomena in tech companies. Labs are exceedingly important for companies because they allow elite teams of engineers to think outside the box and test new solutions to the current landscape, without being obligated to follow strict roadmaps.

Drupal 8 can power experiences beyond the traditional web. As more data rich APIs become available, Drupal can be used to accumulate data, identify a variety of devices in an Internet of Things network and then route data to the appropriate places.

The promise of open source technology has always been the ability to collaborate, customize and scale. Drupal distributions perfectly exemplify this value prop: building and bundling Drupal functionalities to create sites that share specialized needs.

In this session, we’ll discuss our work with one of the largest federated non-profit organization in the world, the YMCA. We will focus specifically on a community driven initiative, Open Y - a Drupal distribution custom built for YMCAs everywhere.

Some specific topics we will go over include:

Experimental modules are critical to Drupal 8. They are part of how D8 allows tinkering and innovation. Although Drupal 8’s release cycle was shortened to twice a year, some things just need more time to be fully built and stable. This is what experimental modules in core enable, while allowing us to put the new improvements to a wider test.

In this tech talk, we’ll discuss the tradeoffs to the experimental module process and answer questions like:

Quicken, the leader in personal finance software, was looking for a new digital commerce platform with next generation content experience capabilities.

If you haven’t already heard, it’s time for you to upgrade to D8. Why? If your organization wants to be a market leader, or at the very least just wants to stay in business and not lose ground, you need a tool that is built to facilitate digital transformation.

Drupal 8 has made it easier than ever to migrate your Drupal or non-Drupal project, and it’s flexible, out-of-the-box features are a competitive solution to rigid, proprietary CMS frameworks.

Register for this webinar with FFW to dive deeper into the four reasons you should make the switch to Drupal 8, including:

As the internet and web-connected devices continue to evolve, so do the needs to develop and render content. Given today’s rate of change, organizations are using decoupled architecture to build applications - giving them flexibility to accommodate any device or experience.

In this session, we’ll cover Powdr, a ski resort holding company. To give its developers the freedom to use the right front-end tools needed for any given use case, Powdr built its 17 ski resort websites on one decoupled Drupal platform.
