Episerver as headless (Episerver Ascend 2018 presentation)
Jun 20, 2018
One session I presented at Episerver Ascend London, Stockholm and Benelux 2018 was on Episerver as headless. This specifically talked about Episerver's approach to headless, including advantages and disadvantages of the approach. I also showed some examples of how the Content Delivery API (the Episerver headless API) could be used.
This post shares the code and presentation ran in this session.
