7:00 PM: Deliciously Content - Russel Collingham (Hedgehog Labs)

This talk will discuss how we built a mobile app, making use of Contentful, for a well known plant-based food writer and blogger, which was featured by Apple in the App Store three times during the first two months after release. We’ll look at the problems we had to tackle, the content model, the overall system architecture and the pain points we had to overcome.
