Autosave and concurrent editing in Drupal 8

Autosave ensures that content changes will not be lost if a sudden power outage or network disruption occurs. The concurrent editing feature provided by the conflict module allows for the simultaneous editing of the same content by multiple users by performing automatic merges whenever possible. The API for the addition of visual merging tools for solving merge conflicts is provided, while a basic out-of-the-box visual merging tool is planned.

Community engagement, our marketing problem.

Drupal is historically a successful CMS in the web where it comes down to complex content models, proper revisions and multi-language with a fine graded access control.

This lead to a lot of prominent solutions, in the corporate world that can compete with adobe and sitecore, as well as smb swiss army-knife solutions for hobbyists and SME.

Now with decoupled and hipster frontend frameworks we seriously have a popularity problem.

Once Upon A Time Since DrupalCamp Ghent 2016

In this session I will tell you how my journey to become a Drupal developer started and how Drupal and its community helped me develop professionally, but as a person as well. 

My aim is to help those who have the desire to become a Drupal developer (or just started recently) by addressing the pitfalls I faced. However, I also want to create awareness by those who already incorporated Drupal into their hearts by noticing actions we can take to help juniors to overcome (relatable) pitfalls.

Code less, accomplish more: decoupling Drupal with GraphQL

What does it take to create a complex, fully decoupled website where Drupal is just managing content and all rendering is performed by a client-side single page application? Surprisingly little. I will demonstrate how we sucessfully utilized Drupal and GraphQL to build a modern customer-facing enterprise web platform.

Myths and Legends of Breaking the Monolith

Introduction of microservices promised faster project maintenance and debugging, easier scaling, high availability and lots of good, old, developer fun. However, a huge ecosystem of sometimes mutually incompatible tools and the lack of guidelines made the concept too scary for most of the teams.

Early adopters and teams with appropriate budgets started experimenting and building their own tools. The rest of us were attending conferences and trying to get the big picture from multiple, often dissonant sources.

Drupal in the cloud - Serverless and more

Serverless computing allows you to build and run applications without provisioning, scale or manage any servers. The main benefits are: no server management, flexible scaling, automated high availability, flexible payment model/pay as you go.

So how does Drupal fit here? How can you transform the well know LAMP stack to be serverless?

After the session you will know the answers of these and several other questions:
