Partnership Event


Contentful Experience (CfX)

We want to take advantage of this unique opportunity having Engineers who build with Contentful working with Engineers who are building Contentful to see how we might improve the experience for the Practitioners at Telus using Contentful.

We encourage teams to hack on Contentful’s APIs and UI Extensions leveraging the APIs from the other software services used by Telus. Contentful Engineers will also be available to hack on Contentful itself, potentially unlocking new and/or experimental capabilities for teams to use in their hacks.


The schedule is subject to change. You will receive an updated version one week before the event.
