Rediscover Google AMP: Learn to integrate AMP with your Drupal project

Come learn about the current state of the Google AMP project and its integration with Drupal, where it's all heading, and how to incorporate AMP with your current or next project.

Session Recording:

What is Google AMP? AMP is an open-source library that provides a straightforward way to create web pages that are compelling, smooth, and load near instantaneously for site visitors. It is supported by many different platforms, and it's compatible across browsers.

During this session, participants will learn the current state of the AMP project through a historical context of the project's beginnings and development in response to web traffic's shift to mobile devices. Together, we'll review some AMP examples to highlight specific e-commerce and UX driven AMP components and what makes valid AMP code.

After an AMP introduction, we'll review how to integrate AMP with Drupal with an eye for creating a development checklist for your current or next project. Through this process, attendees will become familiar with both Drupal AMP module and theme contrib projects.
