Fellow documentarians, let’s start a new meetup season in Amsterdam after the summer break! We are excited to invite you to our new venue in the heart of Amsterdam, at Keizersgracht 617, with warm welcome from the Adyen documentation team.

This time we decided to bring a very challenging and controversial topic, which most of the documentation teams asked at least once: To CMS or Not to CMS?

If you have any experience with making this hard choice (and we believe that you do), please contact Alex Akimov and Laura Vass and prepare a short presentation (max 10 minutes) to share with the rest of the group.

We believe that there is no single right answer to this question, so any opinion is welcome!

"To CMS or Not To CMS, that is the question."
