After successfully creating a field with arguments and context, we are going to have a look at types and interfaces in GraphQL and how they help to build complex, yet self-documenting and type safe schemas.

The last blog post might have left you wondering: "Plugins? It already does everything!". Or you are like one of the busy contributors and already identified a missing feature and can't wait to take the matter into your own hands (good choice).
In this and the following posts we will walk you through the extension capabilities of the GraphQL Core module and use some simple examples to show you how to solve common use cases.
In the last post in this series, we learned how to implement a simple Blog listing with Drupal, GraphQL, Apollo and React. Now it’s time to take a deep breath and dive into the full list of features built into the GraphQL module to spark your imagination with its endless capabilities.
It’s a small developer-focused conference for architects, developers, and businesspeople who are involved in implementing decoupled Drupal architectures in their various lines of work.
If you push yourself enough with the right amount of motivation, you can achieve more - this notion, along with a lot of curiosity, is what got us through the journey of learning React and helped us to continuously improve the code as we worked on getting the Cape Town Drupal Camp website up and running.
Amazee Labs is heavily invested in exploring and adopting new techniques and technologies. For nearly two years we’ve been openly exploring Decoupled Drupal. Among the things that we’ve researched during this time, React and GraphQL certainly stand out as two of the sharpest new tools in our ever growing toolbox. Based on these, we’ve since established a full application architecture and infrastructure.
In the upcoming weeks leading up to DrupalCon Vienna, we want to share our experiences and learnings in a series of blog posts.
Looking back, translating content in Drupal 7 wasn't a straightforward task. It involved enabling a number of modules to do all the translations properly. And in Drupal 8, the Multilingual Initiative took big steps forward to enhance multilingual support for users.
Since its introduction in May, 2011, huge efforts by everyone involved resulted in hundreds of issues resolved and many great improvements have since been made that now drastically simplifies the site building process.
Every few years at DrupalCon, a new theme sweeps through the community. It’s a conceptual theme—a motif, a forward-looking glimpse into the future (not the kind with a .info file). The topic tends to dominate conversations and fill sessions. People have varying ideas of how to best approach the new frontier.
For DrupalCon Baltimore I
was volunteered to help with the lounge for Amazee Labs. This was my first year helping to set up a booth for any conference event and I learned a lot in the process. Fortunately, we have seasoned boothers which made the whole process look easy, but I realized there must be a lot of learned knowledge locked away. In the spirit of open source, I asked six of the vendors here to answer a few questions about their experiences and all were happy to contribute.
The following interviews have been edited heavily (due to my poor journalistic skills). Any and all mistakes are mine.
Thanks to you, the Drupal Community, our Periodic Table of Drupal 8 Modules is a smash hit! So much so that the 100 prints we brought to Baltimore are gone. By popular demand, however, we're providing the PDF for download—perfect for a desktop or a print of your very own.
