For content creators, the humble URL is often an after-thought or not a thought at all. Nail the fundamentals of URL creation, and put them into practice daily to improve your SEO.

Contentful joins Atlassian’s ShipIt hackathon to deliver better editorial and developer experiences

In mid-November, Atlassian welcomed Contentful’s extensibility team to their quarterly hackathon, ShipIt, in their Austin, Texas office. For 24 hours, Atlassian invited everyone — from developers to administrators to illustrators — to collaborate on new projects. Engineers from Contentful and Atlassian assembled two groups with one goal: improve Contentful’s developer and content editor experience. They did just that, learning and eating massive amounts of pizza along the way.
