Join us on Tuesday, March 19th at 7 pm at the Drupal NoVA meetup at Bixal in Fairfax, VA.

Jesus Olivas of WeKnow ( will be doing a (remote) presentation on embracing the modern web using Drupal as Headless CMS with GatsbyJS.

Drupal 8 supports a "headless" mode out-of-the-box. A headless CMS allows content creators to manage content through a familiar admin interface and provides access to the content via API endpoints, allowing developers to implement a fully customized front-end experience using reusable components and a modern framework such as React.

A core feature of Gatsby is its ability to load data from anywhere (Drupal JSON-API endpoint in our example). This is what makes Gatsby more powerful than any other static site generator that are limited to only loading content from Markdown files. Gatsby is taking the world by storm and the JAMstack is here to stay.

Join us to learn how to embrace the modern web using Drupal as Headless CMS with GatsbyJS.
