The Next-Generation CMS Authors Need You to Build

Presented by

Drupal Means Business

A proliferation of new devices means unprecedented content management challenges. We suddenly need to reshape, rethink, and redesign our content to work on smartphones, tablets, apps, social channels, eBooks, and more including whats yet to come.

This presents new challenges for content management systems. In order to get content to work across many devices, we need to separate content creation and management from display. Content needs to live in its own structured, semantically rich environment, so it can be easily accessed and manipulated across platforms.

To do this successfully, we need to dramatically rethink the CMS. And we need to do it with a deep understanding of workflow and the authoring experience.

This our moment, our golden opportunity to develop the next-generation CMS. Something adaptive and highly usable. With all the technical wonder you developers bring to the table and all the simplicity we authors need. We can break the CMS free from being "the software that UX forgot."

Come to this session, and Ill walk you through some of the conversations happening on the content side of the equation. Then we’ll talk functionality. I have some ideas to share, and we can brainstorm new ideas together.

At the end of the session, you’ll walk away with the building blocks to go out and create something amazing.
