Applied Progressive Decoupling:, Angular, and Drupal

Do you have a JavaScript development team itching to pursue new ideas at a faster rate than the rest of your developers or even Drupal itself can accommodate? How can you best avoid the pitfalls of fully decoupling Drupal and reinventing the many wheels you lose, such as layout management and a seamless administrative experience?

Join Preston So, John Kennedy, and Matt Davis as they discuss the practice behind the theory of progressively decoupled Drupal, an approach that infuses graceful application-like interactivity into your site, without jettisoning the features that make Drupal great on the front end. In this webinar, we’ll also delve into the key motivations for harnessing Drupal’s power as a CMS alongside another powerful framework on the front end via progressive decoupling. Topics covered will include:

  • “Headless” Drupal: The promise and perils of fully decoupling Drupal
  • The top five reasons to progressively decouple Drupal
  • Concrete architectures to implement progressive decoupling
  • A case study on and progressively decoupled Panels
  • And much, much more
