- The impact decoupling initiatives have had on the Drupal ecosystem as described in the Decoupled Menus Initiative Keynote
- All of the CMS features that marketers have become accustomed to that you lose when you decouple a site, as discussed in How Drupal Can Be De-coupled: CMS That Marketers Will Love
Drupal theming has come leaps and bounds since I started working with Drupal and it’s even more amazing to me, as a growing number of sites forgo Drupal as their front end delivery, that the Drupal community continues to rise to the challenge to make Drupal a great tool for decoupling and not just a vanilla API. I always try to come away from a conference with some tasks for myself. This year, I’d like to task myself with following the Decoupled Menus and the Decoupled Translation initiatives more closely to see how they’re informing the Drupal ecosystem, and perhaps do a POC using EzContent to try and incorporate CMS features into a decoupled front end.
