Creating an online business workflow with no custom code

Speaker
Jon Firebaugh

What started out as a simple brochure website has become a file repository with workflow automation replacing MS Word documents, that were tedious to fill out. The entire site is built from contrib with no custom code!

Drupal has been promoted as being modular like a set of legos and this session demonstrates the capabilities that Drupal offers to non-developer site builders.

Decoupled Blocks in Drupal 8

Speaker
Matt Davis

Decoupled Blocks is a javascript-framework-agnostic, progressive decoupling tool to allow custom blocks to be written by front end developers in the javascript framework of their choice, without needing to know any Drupal API's.

It keeps individual components encapsulated in their own directories containing all the css, js, and template assets necessary for them to work, and using an info.yml file to declare these components and their framework dependencies to Drupal.
