We are wrapping up our summer of GraphQL, but there’s still the whole month of September to tune in to our live streams!
Every Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. PDT / 11:00 a.m. EDT / 5:00 p.m. CEST, our DevRel team and guests will hang out on YouTube Live to talk about GraphQL and answer questions.
Missed a livestream? You can catch up on past episodes!
What’s your query? Contentful’s new GraphQL course. We started off by making a cake spin with GraphQL and create-react-app.

Content Modeling Workshop
Did you know that you can rename fields in Contentful? Be careful though — when you rename fields your source code has to be adjusted. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do to maintain a stellar content model.
This release allows anyone to easily introduce new editors or override the default editor for a content type. These options are now configurable in the settings of a content type.
We’ve added support for getting the current target state of an app.
The auto_save webhook will decrease from 20 seconds to 5 seconds.
We hope you continue to visit our Dev portal, where you can read other newsletters, view our video series and join our Slack. Let us know via Twitter how we can continue to help you make awesome things.
Until then, stay safe and talk to you next month!
