How Work & Co helped Mailchimp launch original content media portal in six months. Pros (and cons) of using Contentful and Gatsby.

Work & Co's mission is shipping great digital products. As part of the development process for these products —which range from apps to e-commerce platforms to employee tools— Contentful has helped bring features that help enhance these experiences. We’ll review how we’re drawing on some of these features to help improve both the development process and end-products, as well as some usage pitfalls in the context of real-use cases.

7:30 PM: Static Ecommerce - Shy Ruparel (Contentful)

Static Sites are great. They Are reliable, flexible and most importantly fast. With the rise of the JAMStack, more developers than ever are turning to static sites as an alternative to their database-driven projects. The outstanding question though is are static sites a good alternative for enterprise-level ecommerce as well?

Join Shy Ruparel, Developer Evangelist at Contentful as he showcases a practical example of a static ecommerce site, outlines the benefits of static ecommerce and showcases how Contentful and 3rd party ecommerce vendors work together to empower your team.

8:00 PM: Have some more drinks and food
