*** NOTE THE DATE CHANGE ***
Content Management Systems do many different things. They come with several costs, though:
* Complexity. They are often difficult for developers & content creators to learn.
* Performance. To store all types of content, CMSes abstract it deeply. When the site displays your content, it has to re-construct those abstractions. That can take time.
* A literal cost. They can be expensive to purchase.
By replacing a monolithic CMS with a combination of static website generation and a headless CMS, these costs can be virtually eliminated.
Static websites serve simple HTML documents. They don’t rely on abstract data structures or a database connection. They’re fast. This is great for the people visiting your website!
Netlify CMS is a headless CMS that integrates directly into your website. It enables users to manage their static website without having to learn Markdown. This is great for content creators!
We’ll look at how these tools, and others, can simplify your content management.
Steve embraces continuous improvement and believes that a developer's job is to solve problems, not just write code. He is a speaker, a teacher, a learner, and a teammate.
When he isn't talking to the duck or crushing 1s and 0s, you can find Steve outside. He's probably camping with his family, at a triathlon, on his mountain bike, or in a climbing gym.
