In our first workshop in this series, we focused on Netlify and how to get a project setup on Netlify, plus a few other bells and whistles. The second workshop focused on Static Site Generators. In this third installment, we're going to bring the first two together and hook up a headless CMS to our project.

This exploration will is appropriate for newbies and old hats alike. We will cover some basic concepts, but we will also brush the surface of more complex topics. The workshop will flow to serve every developer in the room.
