Marie has a real passion for marketing and all things social (media and personally!) but when she’s not researching and typing away at the latest blog article, you’ll find her either riding her bike around the countryside or by following the cake crumb trail that follows behind her.
Last night, Anthony, Keiron and I ventured up to Shoreditch to participate in a Contentful Meet-up. We’ve recently started using Contentful for one of our clients but we discovered that WYSIWYG editors are not the best idea when dealing with content at scale. The end format is neither reusable nor portable to other platforms. So with a few questions to ask and a bit of knowledge under our belts, we thought we’d head up there.
They went through whether or not we should “markdown all the things”, or not? What Markdown is great at, evaluated the rough edges and looked into alternatives too. They delved into how Contentful has kept their overheads down whilst developing a digital presence in new markets for Moneycorp.
They had pizza and ciders much to our joy! And we also stopped at the most beautiful bar (TT Liquor) for a cocktail (or two!). We met a great bunch of Contentful users who had a lot of expertise to share. We’re now looking at becoming Contentful partners and will definitely be attending the next MeetUp!Fri, February 8, 2019
This week I got to go off site (it sounds like I don’t get let out much!) and travel up to a snowy part of Buckinghamshire for the Fund Management project I’m working on. It was good to work alongside another team as well as our own. Plus, it’s a dog-friendly office, so I was completely in my element.Thu, January 24, 2019
