Gizra has been doing Headless Drupal for a long time and the technology stack has evolved a lot since the very beginning. In this session, we will have a look at our current tools, how do we use them and their benefits: reliability, development speed, maintainability...

During the session we will see the process of building a chatroom: we will start with the backend, where we still use Drupal 7, with the Restful module and the ecosystem around it. We will move into the frontend, where we currently use Elm. Real time applications are super cool, so we will see our current tool for them: Pusher and how we integrate it with Drupal and Elm.

And we will finish having a look at the bright future of Drupal 8: Rest, GraphQL, JSON API.
