Previews for developers and editors

Recorded on
8 May 2019

Developers and editors have different sets of needs and priorities, yet they work on the same projects and with the same systems. Teamwork makes the dream work for some, but when teams need to work in parallel then things can get tricky. When your workflows haven’t been optimized, it’s easy for teammates to step on each others toes and have slow revision and review processes. Optimized workflows are a crucial component of speeding up your processes, giving you the time to create new and exciting content.

In this 45 minute session, you’ll hear from Contentful Developer Evangelist Shy Ruparel and master content creator Jo Fraser. We share best practices for successful workflows and provide a detailed walk-through of how to set up optimal preview environments–for both editors and developers.

Key takeaways:

  • Best practices for developer and editor workflows

  • The do’s and don'ts of roles, permissions, and previews

  • The unique challenges for both developers and editors

  • How to set up and use environments to support developer previews
