Praise for Decoupled Drupal in Practice

“A must-have guide to decoupling Drupal ... When you finish reading, I think you will agree that decoupled Drupal is an essential element of the bright future in front of Drupal.”

Dries Buytaert, Drupal project lead and Acquia founder

“This is a really great book. I’ve been reading blog posts by Preston, hearing him present, and asking him questions on decoupled every chance I can get and I’m so glad to have those thoughts in a physical form I can read through and consult whenever I have questions.”

Greg Knaddison, Drupal Security Team member

“I believe I have found my guide by picking up the book Decoupled Drupal in Practice ... I found Preston’s back-to-basics approach to be very helpful and it provided the context I needed. It allowed me to look at past projects and recognize how they were the beginnings of progressive decoupling. As I move further along in the book, I’m feeling more confident and finding my place in the decoupled conversation.”

Andy Olson, Senior Front-End Developer at Bounteous

“Covers pretty much everything you want to know about decoupled Drupal right now.”

Nick Selvaggio, Director of IT at American Diagnostic
