Mature projects in any CMS will have a large number of content types. Maintaining those with scripts makes changes to that model more repeatable, but it can be overwhelming if you need to update a lot of types. You can leverage the management API in Kontent by Kentico to update multiple content types in a single script to lessen your workload.
How do you find the resources that your development team will need to get up and running with Kentico Kontent in .NET?
I've had a website built in Gatsby for a while now, but I really did miss having it in .NET. Here's how and why I moved to a .NET static-site instead of Gatsby.
Dan Clarke and I took some time out to talk about Kentico Kontent, JAMStack, and .NET Oxford as well as a few other topics
LINQPad is a great way to quickly try out .NET snippets of code. In this video, I'll show you how to use Kentico Kontent's Delivery SDK with LINQPad to quickly check out your content models without usual the ceremony of setting up a new project.
See how you can share your local development environment with your remote team using ngrok, enabling your content team to preview new features before they are committed.
Take a look at what the headless CMS is and why you should consider it for your team.
Working with Kentico Kontent and Gatsby has been a nice learning curve for me, as I pick up and build upon my front-end developer skillset. You can end up taking quite a lot for granted when you're working with .NET. Securing your calls to an API can be one of these things, as you add things like API keys to your .config files and make sure that you don't push those files into your git repo.
About this time last week, I'd just published a post about moving to Gatsby from .NET Core for my own personal site and was walking to a Gatsby meetup in central London.
There is no escaping the amount of traction that static site generators and JAMStack are getting these days. As a traditional .NET developer, you may feel that your skillset doesn’t contain the things you need to jump on this bandwagon and make the most of the benefits available. But is it really that difficult to get up and running with a new stack?
If you hadn’t noticed, Kentico Connection came back last year, and this year’s Connection season kicked off in Kentico’s beautiful home-city of Brno. Having missed last years event in Prague, this was the first time I’ve been to a Connection event that hasn’t been focused on a product release, so the messaging was a little different to what I’ve been used to and focussed more on the direction that the demands on the market are heading and how those demands are helping to influence the direction of both Kentico EMS and Kontent.
I was fortunate enough to speak at September's .NET Oxford event this year about chatbots. More specifically an exploration of the key concepts of taking a pre-existing source of data and using a chatbot to surface this to a user in a new way.
In the .NET Oxford June meetup, I presented a beginners guide to Azure search for developers have not had time to look into it yet and may not know where to start. The intention was to show just how easy it can be!
Kentico Cloud provides a simple clean interface for defining and creating content that can be consumed by multiple channels. Quite often you’ll have a lot of your content in a digital format at the beginning of your project, and - depending on how much there is - this content can be time consuming to enter.
AMP aims to deliver super-fast content for mobile websites. You've decided that you really need it; how do you do turn AMP on? In this post i'll walk through a method I've been experimenting with to deliver alternative AMP views in ASP.NET MVC with the Kentico Cloud sample site.
February has been busy (so much so that that I've not published anything since my January reading list). What spare time I have had has been spent planning further features for my website. During that planning, these are article that I found quite useful.
Rebuilding my blog in Kentico Cloud has been something that I have been planning to do for a good few months now. Having not really had the opportunity while trying to balance work with a hectic family life, Christmas and New Year 2017 afforded me some time to get my teeth into this project and to start adding some of the features and foundations that I wanted to really build this project up. This post is all about the things I learned along the way.
'Content is King', that's the saying these days isn't it? As web solution providers we strive to find better ways to manage content and present it to end users. As headless CMSs grow in popularity, do we need to rethink what qualifies as being content?
Today Kentico and Ucommerce announced their new technology partnership that delivers an additional enterprise-level eCommerce platform to the set of tools at our disposal. What does this mean and how does it affect existing and in-flight projects?
Kentico has moved away from their larger 404/Connection Conferences to smaller, regional road-shows. One of the advantages to this is that it opens up the event to more regional partners and customers. For the Ridgeway team, that also means it's easier to get more of the team involved in these events. because of that, three of us took a trip down to London to check it out.
Each month, I go through my browser history to look at the posts and articles that I have read. It seems like it may be worth sharing these to help spread the love!
This third post in my series that explores some of the core capabilities of Kentico Cloud based on short pomodoro-size bursts of effort. This post explores RSS feeds and sitemaps as well as correcting the mime type of media files.
The second part in my series of posts about creating a new blog site using Kentico Cloud.
