Leveraging Drupal for IoT devices can be a challenge, full of technical blockers and conceptual hurdles. This session will help ease that path by digging into conversation design concepts, covering some of the popular voice platforms and demonstrating how Drupal can drive multiple IoT applications from a single install.
This session will cover:
- Conversational design and application planning
- An overview of Amazon Developer tools and Dialogflow API
- "Outside in” and “inside out” approaches with PHP libraries and NodeJS
- State of current modules and community efforts
- Technical shortcuts and gotchas that can be painful blockers
- Testing and refining your applications
This talk is geared towards both developers and site builders. We’ll dig into code examples and discuss considerations beyond development for site builders and content architects when powering an IoT app with Drupal. Development concepts are intermediate, but a dedicated Drupal beginner will be able to follow along with takeaways to learn more.
