    What is a headless CMS? A headless CMS is a major shift from the traditional model for delivering web content. It is not a single technology, it is an approach for serving web pages and data to your users. Rather than have a single codebase handle both content management and presentation of that content, a headless CMS is only concerned with content management, leaving presentation up to other parts of the tech stack.

  2. Crafting for the Author Experience

    I am currently the Author Experience Lead at Happy Cog and I’ve been making websites for the past 12 years, starting in middle school. I’ve been involved with the ExpressionEngine and Craft CMS communities for the bulk of that time.

    At Happy Cog, we pride ourselves on the level of attention and detail we put into planning our CMS projects, which extends deeply into thinking about the Author Experience – an area that is typically neglected.

  3. Craft + Patternlab = Buzzwords!

    Craft is a flexible and powerful content management system (CMS) with a responsive interface content authors want to use. It uses the Twig template system to power its HTML front-end. Twig comes out of the Symfony project and provides a fast, secure, and flexible system. Twig code is inherently portable and is not tied to Craft, or even PHP, with recent ports showing up in Node. Craft is great for back-end developers.

  4. The Intro Tech Call

    Yesterday at Happy Cog, Mark, Abby, and I had an intro call with a tech team for a client who will be implementing our templates into their CMS, which, in this case, is ExpressionEngine.

    2014 has been a year of big change for Happy Cog. We’ve had more than a year’s worth of adventures packed into a short 12 months. One thing that remains a constant, however, is our team’s continual quest to explore and hone our roles; process; project structure; and approach to clients, partners, and coworkers. Cognition serves as our way of documenting and sharing our thoughts and discoveries with the world.

  6. About That Craft CMS

    Times are changing in the PHP world. Some call it the PHP Renaissance. PSR standards are bringing interoperability between frameworks and unity to coding standards. Composer offers access to an array of best-in-class components and a simple way to integrate them into your applications. There are some great, new PHP language features showing up like Traits and more. A new breed of frameworks and content management systems are getting on board. It’s a great time to be a back-end developer!

    In a world that requires specialized Drupal developers, Wordpress developers, ExpressionEngine developers, and other pre-renaissance CMS developers, Craft CMS gives me hope for a day when being a PHP developer is enough.
