Decoupled Drupal is now a fixture of the Drupal community and ecosystem, but it has roots in key software concepts like the separation of concerns. Today, decoupled Drupal is commonplace across the Drupal world, not only at the highest echelons of enterprise implementations of Drupal but also among smaller consultancies beginning to get their feet wet with headless CMS architecture.

In the first part of our two part series on decoupled software, learn about what decoupled software is, and what types of decoupled applications exist. Find out the hows, the whens, and the whys of decoupling applications, and some reasons you may use different approaches to different websites.

Learn from Preston So, the author of the bible on decoupled Drupal, Decoupled Drupal in Practice (2018), co-originator of the term progressive decoupling, and Tag1 Consulting's Editor in Chief for this whirlwind tour through the prehistory, present, and forward-looking outlook for decoupled Drupal. He's joined by Michael Meyers, Managing Director at Tag1, in this discussion of how far we've come and what's still ahead.
