This track is focused on developers and the back-end technologies to deal with today’s and future challenges. With the coming release of Drupal 8, as well as emerging Web technologies, preparation is essential. These sessions will help you learn how to deliver effective solutions to meet these needs.


When RStudio released Shiny which is a web server for R applications, Bill knew that he found his missing piece to build a Drupal-based analytics platform. Then, came Headless Drupal which further unleashed the possibilities for the analytics platform. Thus, Project Rowsdower was started to determine how to combine R/Shiny and Headless Drupal on top of the MEAN stack to build a responsive and user-friendly analytics platform. In this session, Bill will demonstrate the Minimal Viable Prototype for the Rowsdower analytics platform.
