Drupal 8 Rest APIs - Decoupling Drupal

Hi guys,

I am not sure if anyone views this website but I wanted to ask if there was anyone who had experience with Decoupling Drupal (building websites by consuming drupal 8 Rest APIs). I might need someone to help urgently on a project.

Drupal in Kenya

Hi

My name is Tom Erickson, and I am the CEO of Acquia. I partnered with Drupal creator Dries Buytaert to start Acquia in 2007/2008.

I noticed that the Drupal group in Kenya is very quiet, and that the government sites are built in Joomla. I am curious if there is any particular reason for this. Is there a way to make the Drupal community stronger?

I will be visiting Kenya in June on a family holiday, thus the curiosity.

Cheers
Tom

Extending availability of Payment Gateways to Drupal

In the spirit of opening up more payment options for e-commerce & mobile money, I had a look @ http://www.ipayafrica.com/ and the services they offer. It seems okay but unfortunately there is no Drupal integration of any kind. May I suggest that we should look into these many payment gateways and integrate them with drupal either through drupal commerce or ubercart or even better we can come up with our very own own product that incorporates and integrates with the aforementioned scope.

iHub connection?

Though I live in Silicon Valley, I am interested in what is happening in Kenya, and would like to know more about the state of the Drupal community. Are there people hosting meetups? Does anyone work at iHub? Do you get regular Drupal freelance work? If you would be willing to fill me in, perhaps we could discuss possible collaborations. Thanks for your time.
