      Sailing Through a Sea of CMS: Build and Extend APIs Faster With Strapi


      About the Talk

      The role of content management systems keeps evolving and in the self hosted utopia we’re approaching, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of micro services. I’ll be explaining what makes a good CMS, things to consider when picking one and why Strapi is a great pick for your business, taking the API-first approach and extending its usefulness to other parts of your business.

      Building Custom APIs with Strapi

      Let’s build a custom API. Strapi is a Node CMS that lets us create our own APIs quickly from a clean dashboard. We don’t have to jump into Node code to create a database, database connections, models, etc. Strapi lets us create an API in very little time!

      Key takeaways

      • Building a custom API can be done quickly
      • Building a custom API without writing Node code
      • We can get up and running with a REST API or GraphQL API

      Join us if…

      • You want to build your own APIs, and you want to do it quickly!
      • You want to build a backend API, but don’t have the Node expertise, or want to focus on frontends.

      Knowledge of APIs and what APIs are is good to have.
