About the webinar

This webinar covers:

  • Real-world examples of content models for homepages and help center sites

  • Best practices on building content models that meet the needs of developers and editors

  • Tips on finding the balance between reusable and overly specific content models

A well-structured content model is the foundation of every great digital project. It organizes information so the API can deliver the content for your applications. A content model also gives structure to your content, makes content reusable, and helps you deliver digital products faster.

Because Contentful’s content platform is flexible enough to meet the unique needs of your project, it isn’t always obvious how to best set up your content model to meet the needs of both content creators and developers. Knowing when to plan for the future and when to optimize for the moment is crucial for success.

During this webinar, we discuss Clover’s process, challenges and key learnings from three content modeling projects. Senior Software Engineer Rachel Church and Contentful’s own Developer Evangelist Amelia Winger-Bearskin talk about how Clover’s content modeling strategy evolved, sharing tips they learned along the way.
