Enrollment is now open for both authors and developers. In this post, we'll explain what you can expect to learn in each course.

Contentful Studio for Authors

Contentful Studio for Authors is designed for content creators, marketers, and designers who want to create captivating digital experiences without relying heavily on developers. This course covers essential topics, including the value of Contentful Studio, setting up and navigating the Studio environment, building experiences using components and patterns, and best practices for creating and managing content within Studio.

Participants in the live sessions will learn to craft engaging digital experiences using an intuitive interface, build bespoke pages with flexibility and reusability, and streamline their content creation and management processes. 

The course content explains the basic definition of a design system, and why it’s important for you to understand what they are to be most effective. And while participants won’t be required to do any coding, they will understand how developers set up Studio to ensure the environment is optimized for their needs. This gives you value context about the role they have to play going forward.

Additionally, the course contrasts out-of-the-box components with custom components and provides an overview of team roles and responsibilities when using the product. Contentful Studio has revolutionized how content teams work, allowing them to visually assemble intelligent experiences at scale.

Key takeaways for authors

Key takeaways from the course include leveraging Studio's visual interface to create stunning layouts and designs without extensive coding knowledge, using components and patterns to create consistent and reusable elements, and structuring content effectively to ensure it is easily discoverable and maintainable. By the end of the course, participants will confidently deliver engaging experiences efficiently. Enroll for individual course.

Contentful Studio for Developers

Also available, Contentful Studio for Developers is tailored for developers who want to leverage the power of Contentful Studio to create structured, scalable, and customizable digital experiences. This instructor-led course delves into the architecture and concepts behind Studio, setting up and configuring a Studio experience, developing and registering custom components, and implementing best practices for performance and maintainability.

Developers who take this course will learn how to register structured, reusable components that align with their brand’s design system, empower content authors to create experiences independently, and focus on complex functionality while leaving content assembly to authors and creators. With Contentful Studio, your development team can focus on building robust, reusable components while the content team has the freedom to create visually engaging experiences.

In the Studio for Developers course, participants will gain a deep understanding of the technical aspects that make Studio a powerful tool for creating digital experiences. They'll explore the architecture behind Studio, learning how to set up and configure Studio experiences to meet their specific needs. The course will guide developers through the process of creating and registering custom components that align with their brand's design system, ensuring consistency and scalability across all digital experiences.

Throughout the course, developers will also learn best practices for optimizing the performance and maintainability of their Studio experiences. They'll discover techniques for structuring their components and code in a way that promotes reusability and efficiency. By the end of the course, participants will have the knowledge and skills to build robust, scalable components that empower content authors to create rich, engaging experiences independently.

Key takeaways for developers

One of the key benefits of the Studio for Developers course is the ability to focus on complex functionality while leaving content assembly to authors and creators. By providing content teams with the tools and components they need to create visually engaging experiences, developers can dedicate their time and expertise to building the underlying infrastructure and functionality that powers those experiences. This collaborative approach fosters a more efficient and effective content creation process, ultimately resulting in better digital experiences for the end user. Enroll for individual course.
