Deep dive into making your React, Vue or Angular apps fully editable and easy to manage for your content and marketing teams.

Configure a content-type in your headless CMS, turn your content authors loose on it, then grab the array from the endpoint, render the list in your app, and add a detail view. Mission accomplished, right? For some projects, yes. But for other projects, the content and marketing teams need to do more, and ideally they don't need to always come back and pester you for changes every Monday morning.

In this workshop you will learn the very cool new approach that many CMS have launched in the last year. Frontend components and visual CMS components are bound in an elegant way, such that non-technical content authors can literally build up frontend apps, component by component, in a visual WYSIWYG environment. This means you can go fully headless, yet still give your marketing team the tools and creative control they need. It's both an interesting frontend technology and a much requested feature. This workshop covers a general topic and is appropriate for users of any frontend framework, SSG and CMS. As a practical example we'll use React, Gatsby & Magnolia.

Requirements: Familiarity with the command line. Node version 10.15+ and npm 6.4+ installed.
