Creating a modern web application using Symfony API Platform

During this year and at several events SANDCamp, DrupalCamp LA, DrupalCon Nashville, and DrupalCamp Colorado I had a chance to talk and show how at WeKnow we approached the development of API driven applications. For all of you that use Drupal, this is something like decoupled or headless Drupal but without the Drupal part.

This article outlines weKnow’s approach and provides some insight into how we develop some web applications.

Yes, this may sound strange but whenever we need to build an application that is not content-centric, we use Symfony instead of Drupal; what are those cases? Whenever we do not require the out-of-the-box functionality that Drupal offers as content management, content revision workflow, field widgets/formatters, views, and managing data structure from the UI (content types).
