making decoupled drupal days actually decoupled

In the beginning, there was a conference called Decoupled Dev Days. It had a web site that was React but not actually decoupled at all. Then the next year, it became Decoupled Drupal Days and was still a static site. But this time, it was made with Gatsby. And as the days passed, and the content became more unmanageable, the need for a better CMS was needed. So Drupal was added and the site instantly became decoupled and easy to manage.
