JAMStack Content Management with Scott Gallant, Jordan Patterson, and Nolan Phillips

A content management system (CMS) defines how the content on a website is arranged and presented. The most widely used CMS is WordPress, the open source tool that is written in PHP. A large percentage of the web consists of WordPress sites, and WordPress has a huge ecosystem of plugins and templates.

Despite the success of WordPress, the JAMStack represents the future of web development. JAM stands for JavaScript, APIs, and Markup. In contrast to the monolithic WordPress  deployments, a JAMStack site consists of loosely coupled components. And there are numerous options for a CMS in this environment.

TinaCMS is one such option. TinaCMS is an acronym for “Tina Is Not A CMS”, and it is a toolkit for content management. Scott Gallant, Jordan Patterson, and Nolan Phillips work on TinaCMS, and they join the show to explore the topic of content management on the JAMStack.

It’s hard to get engineering resources to build back-office apps, and even harder to get engineers excited about maintaining them. The idea is that all internal tools kinda look the same – they’re made of tables, dropdowns, buttons, text inputs, etc. Retool gives you a drag and drop interface so engineers can build these internal UIs in hours, not days, and spend more time building features customers will see. Visit retool.com/sedaily to learn more.
