    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. 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.

  3. 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.
