Presentation 1

"The New Layout Builder: Unleash the Power!" by Ted Bowman

Come learn how the Layout Builder module can be used as a powerful site building tool to replace much of the functionality of Panels & Panelizer. We will also show how the Layout Builder can be used in ways you have come to love Paragraphs for or even how you can use Paragraphs inside the new Layout Builder.

This talk will teach you how to get the most out of the Layout Builder module.

Bio:
Ted Bowman is a Principal Software Engineer on Acquia’s Drupal Acceleration Team. He is currently working hard to make the upgrade from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9 as easy as possible. He is also co-maintainer of the core Layout Builder and Settings Tray modules. He has been involved with Drupal for over 10 years.

Before joining Acquia, Ted specialized in custom module development and ran a Drupal training company, Six Mile Tech.

Presentation 2

"Expanding JSON:API support in Drupal Commerce" by Matt Glaman

Centarro powers eCommerce innovation through every stage of growth. We’ve helped many growing businesses evolve and scale by embracing decoupled architectures to improve performance, create unique customer experiences, and more tightly integrate external business systems to improve their operations.

As a result of this work, we were recently able to release the Commerce API module to the Drupal community at large. It expands Drupal’s JSON:API capabilities to work with the Commerce framework for decoupled eCommerce applications. In this presentation, I’ll walk you through the why, what, and how of the new Commerce API.

Bio:
Matt joined the Drupal community in 2012 after discovering it through a client using Drupal Commerce. He became an active contributor to the project even before joining Centarro in 2015 (then Commerce Guys) as a senior Drupal developer.

Matt co-maintains Commerce 2.x for Drupal 8 and leads Centarro’s product development. He’s a force multiplier for teams implementing Drupal Commerce, helping them get the most out of the framework, and for Centarro’s own team of developers responsible for maintaining the company’s open source software.
