DrupalCamp NJ - Headless Drupal
This past weekend (February 4, 2017) I had the opportunity to visit the sixth annual DrupalCamp NJ. Hosted at the Princeton University Friend Center, the conference gathered a wide variety of like-minded professionals from various backgrounds interested in sharing their knowledge about Drupal and discussing their experiences. In a true open-source environment, presentations were broken up into varying experience levels ranging from beginner to advanced and included categories like: Site Building, Front End & Design, Development, and Case Studies.
During my visit, I attended several really great presentations. Ted Bowman had a really awesome discussion on Drupal 8 module development. Erich Beyrent demonstrated how to manage a Drupal 8 configuration with Git and Composer, and Michael Hess shared some great tips on improving web security. However, a few presentations/discussions really jumped out and grabbed my attention…Headless Drupal covered by Williamson Vedder (Bluecadet) and Michael Potter (Penn State).
What is Headless Drupal?
Finally, I want to give a BIG shout-out to DrupalCamp NJ for hosting such a great event. I have had the opportunity to attend several DrupalCamps and this was one of the most well organized to date. The sessions were very informative and engaging to all levels of experience and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful; I would encourage anyone reading this to make plans to attend next year.
