Lately there has been an increasing interest in decoupled Drupal (a.k.a. headless Drupal). Lullabot and are two organizations that have recently announced new sites that feature decoupled Drupal. In a decoupled architecture, Drupal is used as a way to create, store, and provide content, but it does not present that content. Instead, RESTful interfaces allow other applicatiions, such as single-page javascript applications and mobile applications, to pull content from Drupal and display it within those applications.

In this session, we will:

- Discuss the pros and cons of a decoupled Drupal architecture

- Show how Drupal 8's core RESTful capabilities are ideal for a decoupled architecture

- Demo a live example
