#035 - Examining Web Spotlight for Kentico Kontent


In this episode of Kentico Rocks, Brian McKeiver is joined by fellow Kentico Kontent MVP Andy Thompson. Andy and Brian discuss the newly released Web Spotlight feature for Kentico Kontent.

According to Andy, Web Spotlight addresses the elephant in the room when it comes to utilizing a Headless CMS, which is, how can we expect our content teams to develop a website without a head to look at it with?

Check out the latest episode of Kentico Rocks to find out what developers need to know about implementing Web Spotlight, how to implement it in a .Net Core MVC project, and how it possibly changes your content model requirements. Brian and Andy both agree that ultimately, when implemented correctly, Web Spotlight by Kontent can take your Headless CMS site editing experience to the next level.
