Session Track

Skill level
Beginner

Learn about how Drupal interacts with third-party systems such as Facebook, Twitter to authenticate users, post content from Drupal 8 using Social API, Social Auth, and Social Post. These modules use the OAuth2 protocol which is implemented in the Drupal Social Initiative. Attendees will learn about Social API, a suite of related components, and how to implement modules in Drupal 8 and why use OAuth2 protocol over a conventional login based approach.

This talk will also give an insight into how high school and university students coded this module suite and maintain it with the programs "Google Code-In" and "Google Summer of Code" and how I'm going to implement new features to these modules this summer as a part of Google Summer of Code.
