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.

In the last three blog posts, you learned about the current palette of features of the GraphQL module and how you can further extend and adapt it according to your needs. In this blog post, we want to shed some light on our future plans for the of the module and show you where we are headed and how you can get involved.
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.
