Drupal Beyond the Browser: Using Drupal to Power Apps and Touchscreens

Drupal Beyond the Browser: Using Drupal to Power Apps and Touchscreens

 

There’s a lot of talk about headless architectures and using CMSes in conjunction with front-end JavaScript frameworks to make better websites and webapps. But what if you want to use Drupal for something other than a website? This session will focus on how Bluecadet used Drupal to power a user-orientation application installed on touchscreens throughout the Field Museum in Chicago. The touchscreens provide maps, schedule information, and the ability to send items to your phone.

The session will touch (sorry not sorry) on Services Views, custom Services controllers, and creating JSON APIs in Drupal 8.
