Keynote 2


Speaker:Amitai Burstein

Title:A quick look at Gizra's stack and how Drupal 8 fits in


In Gizra, we run an unusual stack that helps us reach blazing fast websites - Drupal 7 & 8 run our backends, Elm in the front, and most recently Yesod (a Haskell framework). There's a certain mindset in choosing these technologies - it's about the idea of "correctness" and how it's backed by our business needs; making sure we can move quickly without breaking stuff. ---In this session, I'll explain in depth about this mindset and explain how you can get involved as well.




Title:Drupal headless fuelled by Ember

Ember is one of the most popular frontend frameworks around. It gathers the best practices and methodologies into one place to build frameworks In this session, we will present the work we've been doing at OIST to develop our internal communications tool, what have been our findings and how we have leveraged Drupal 8, NodeJs and EmberJs to build a complex headless tool with a small team.

Drupal has a very powerful caching mechanism that can be managed in various units such as fields, blocks, pages, etc. It is also possible to link with external cache systems such as Varnish and CDN. I will show you how to use these caches not only for anonymous users but also for individual authenticated users to build a high-speed system.

Title:Drupal's core, how to make a contribution to a module

Speaker:studio UMI Hayato Goto
If you'd like to make improvements to existing Drupal projects, you will need to create patches and upload it, which is a bit different from the recent way when you do the same kind of work in github such as folk and pull requests.
