What is Headless CMS? The Headless CMS Day will provide answers

Headless content management systems are an interesting alternative to classic web content management systems, since they separate the content from its presentation. That is why headless CMS open up new opportunities and benefits for editors and software developers. On the Headless CMS Day on April 16th, we will show you the possibilities offered by the flexible headless approach. The programme includes an introduction to the topic (in the morning) and a deep dive session with the enterprise headless CMS Contentful (in the afternoon).

"Back to the roots": Introduction to Headless CMS

  • Duration: from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • Language: German
  • Price: free of charge

Classic web content management systems provide a whole array of comprehensive functions that focus rather on the publication than on the editing work. Quite in contrast to this are headless content management systems: Those systems go “back to the roots” and therefore focus on the content that is relevant for users. During the introduction to headless from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. we will show you how to separate content from presentation and channels according to the “content first” approach.

During the introduction, Graciela Schütz and Olaf Kaiser-Otto will show you the benefits and challenges of the headless content management systems from their perspective (either user experience or architecture perspective). The intro session will end with specific examples and take-aways from current projects conducted in Switzerland by Unic.
