In a bit less than a week's time of writing this post, I’ll be packing my bag and getting ready to fly from Edinburgh to Vienna for the annual DrupalCon event.

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.
As per the extreme version of Tour de Drupal, my plan is to cycle from Switzerland to DrupalCon Vienna by crossing the Alps 6 times. The tour will take me over some of the most challenging Alp passes using my road cycle.
Cycling is a great way to travel, experience new things and meet like-minded people. Join us for Tour de Drupal Vienna and let’s cycle together to DrupalCon!
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.
Building an app that displays a list of articles in Drupal in the traditional way is a straightforward task - meaning that we use Drupal for everything: backend configuration and data storage as well as frontend (usually twig in Drupal 8).
However, doing the same thing in a decoupled configuration, where we use for example Drupal for backend and data storage, and React as frontend, is not that easy.
To help you with this, this blog post aims to show how you can successfully build that.
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.
