Community, Development and Leadership at DrupalCon 2019

It’s been almost a month since DrupalCon 2019. We can’t believe how time flies! While we were there, we had a variety of things going on at many different levels. Just as fast as the time since DrupalCon has flown past us, our time in Seattle felt like a tiny blip.

Speaker Notes: Attending DrupalCon as a Presenter

DrupalCon 2019 was a bit different for me. I have attended previous DrupalCons, usually sitting in the back of the room just taking in all that I could from experts around the world. This year, however, I had the opportunity to be a speaker. Not only was I afforded the opportunity to speak, but I had two separate sessions accepted.

Look out for Hook 42 at DrupalCon 2019 in Seattle!

It’s that time again, another DrupalCon is fast approaching and our team couldn’t be more excited for this year’s Seattle event. We’ve got a lot in store for you this year, from presentations, BOFs, sponsorships, partnership collaborations, and using our listening ears. You’ll find our team distributed all about.

We’re bringing a stacked line-up of knowledge and experiences to drop on 'ya this year. Not only that, we’re looking forward to hearing all the ups and downs you’ve had this past year, and how we’re all growing together within the Drupal community. 

Let’s get to sharing!

Consuming JSON APIs in Drupal 8

Nowadays everyone has an API and it's fairly common to want a website you're working on to fetch data from a 3rd party API. That's because pulling 3rd party data into your website can not only enriches your website's content, but doing so can prevent the need to duplicate commonly needed data.

API provided data could include displaying weather information, going through drupal.org projects, looking through census results, or even displaying Magic the Gathering card data. In fact, every WordPress site comes with an active JSON API out of the box.

There really is an API for almost anything. It's no surprise that you'll eventually want to consume some random API while developing a Drupal website. But enough of the sales pitch, let's get started consuming JSON APIs.
