How many people do you need on your team to build a headless Drupal site? If you asked me a year ago, I would've told you at least 10. But then one of my coworkers built a headless website by himself, and its helping power a certain 3 letter Atlanta based news company's website.

So many tools have come out recently to simplify this process that I would argue that you could build and maintain a headless website with a single developer. I'm going to talk through a few scenarios of how it could be done, and show an example of a (relatively) simple headless site that I built and maintain by myself.

This session may mention:

  • Headless Drupal
  • Fancy buzzwords
  • Next.js
  • Node.js
  • Javascript frameworks with weird names
  • Gatsby
  • React
  • Netlify
  • GraphQL

Session attendees should expect some technical demonstrations but do not need to have any experience.
