Drupal along with few popular modules can serve as a drop-in backend for Android apps. It’s very simple to use, easy to get started and can be the best backend solution value proposition you will find in the market today. With Drupal at backend the App developers can focus on creating great user experience and stop worrying about developing complex backend that they would require to realise their ideas. The workshop can get the developers started with using Drupal as backend, intially atleast for rapid prototyping of their Ideas.

Drupal is proven to be scalable, and secure platform. With Drupal sharing data and connecting users will be real easy.
Drag & drop creation of content types, content relation and fields are possible. With ready to use API methods supporting all standard end-points including json, Drupal ensures a quick and painless development & integration process.

  • Deploy secure API’s for the platform with authentication and controlled access.
  • Manage all the content with full flexibility from backend interface.
  • Manage users from backend, create, suspend or delete users. Control permissions and types of user (Eg: Free & Paid)
