Supercharging Drupal UX with React

The JavaScript renaissance of the last few years has yielded an extraordinary number of innovative frameworks, libraries, and other tools.

By combining these technologies with the power of Drupal, developers can create highly interactive and engaging experiences for users of the modern web. React is particularly well suited to utilize with a decoupled Drupal approach and kick your project’s UX into high gear.

This webinar will provide a brief introduction to React, case studies of successful integrations with Drupal, and practical information on how best to leverage its potential for any site. Attendees will gain both an in-depth understanding of how to get started with React as well as insights based on real-world implementations.

Key topics covered in this webinar include:

  • Benefits of a decoupled Drupal approach with React
  • Integrating React with the theming layer
  • Best practices for data management
  • Discussion of the future of decoupled Drupal

While all are welcome to attend, this webinar is primarily targeted for site architects and developers. Throughout the presentation, code examples, lessons learned, and technical challenges will be discussed in detail.
