Hello, friends! This Contentful developer newsletter is all about building digital products, web development and all things Contentful. This month, the sun is shining and our succulents are growing:
Exciting things from the internet
Lynn Fisher will inspire you to start making some awesome CSS drawings of your own. CSS drawings are impressive by themselves, but Lynn does it all in a single div!
One giant GitHub resource for tons of fun creative coding libraries, tutorials and friends.
Liam Hammett tweets some tricky inspo and we are here for it.
Community starter of the month
This is one of my favorite Contentful starters — we hope you enjoy it.
Awesome people making awesome things
Robert Linde walks you through why your item may be null when using the Contentful .NET SDK. The .NET SDK, thankfully, has a solution!
This handy starter created by Oscar has an elegant tutorial to accompany it.
Our Developer Evangelist Shy Ruparel has put together a great conference to help devs with life skills. He did this on his own (with tons of coffee and high fives).
Help out your friends who create content previews of what their work would look like when it's live. Brought to you by Stacie Taylor.

If you build something that you’d like to share with the community, please reach out or join our slack org.
Tip of the month: did you know you can press 'q' anywhere in the Contentful web app to search entries, assets and content types? Try it out.
In this blog post and tutorial, Shy Ruparel explains how to run static stites with GitHub actions and Eleventy.
In this webinar, Shy Ruparel teams up with Aleksandr Suevalov from the Contentful Extensibility team to build an extension using these open-source components.
Algolia and Contentful host a podcast now! We chatted with Sam Agnew, Sarah Dayan, Dan Gorelick and Shy Ruparel about their tips and tricks for becoming a live coding star. We covered stage fright, light mode and what to do when things go wrong. We also shared ways in which we are staying connected and giving back to our local communities.
We’ve released new appearance settings for reference fields (single reference, many references, single media, many media files) that give content modelers the ability to hide link actions per field. This will help streamline the experience for editors.
