Can Drupal be the de-coupled CMS that marketers also love?

Ishan Mahajan

If you look at Google search trends for "De-coupled CMS" or go through the agenda of various Drupal Cons/Camps, you will see a steady rise since late 2015.

Yes, we know that front end developers who have a preference for modern JS frameworks such as React and Angular love the idea of de-coupled Drupal. But what about marketers or other CMS users? Are they on board with loosing traditional CMS features such as drag & drop page builders, content preview etc, which they have been using for a over a decade?

In this session, we will go over this divide within the CMS world - Developer led de-coupled push Vs Marketer led resistance to stay with monolith/traditional CMS.

We will see how Drupal, can be the bridge that fills this gap.

We'll demo how you can use Drupal 8/9 today, in a completely de-coupled (with Angular, Next.js and Gatsby) fashion and still retain the following features:

Drupal's layout builder for drag & drop page building
Preview unpublished content and retain editorial workflow
Managing menus
Control meta tags and
Set redirects
and much more...
Bonus: we'll share Drupal projects and Github starter kits that will enable you to setup these demos and use these features yourself.
