The future of the CMS

Todd Ross Nienkerk

Most CMSs have 3 big problems. First, they focus on managing your website, not your content. Second, they monopolize the presentation layer, making it hard to create compelling, forward-thinking designs. Third, it's difficult to add new channels like mobile apps and microsites without duplicating your content.

In this session, we'll rethink the purpose of a CMS, the connection between a site's backend and frontend, and how we manage and consume content. We'll close with a case study of how TWiT.tv relaunched as a decoupled Drupal site with an exposed API allowing their fanbase to directly access content.

This session is for designers and developers alike. You’ll both learn a lot.
