Kentico Rocks Podcast Episode 24

Episode 24 of Kentico Rocks features special guests Kyle Mathews, Founder/CEO of Gatsby and the Gatsby open source project, and Ilesh Mistry, Kentico Architect at MMT Digital. I'm very grateful that both Kyle and Ilesh were able to join me to discuss Gatsby, as I am a huge fan of the technology and think that Gatsby and JAMStack in general are the future of where web development is going (especially when you throw in Kentico Kontent to connect your static site to become fully editable). That's why I even presented on it this year at the Detroit Tech Watch.

Our goal for this episode was to let developers out there know why the combination of Kentico Kontent and Gatsby together is such a killer combination (spoiler alert, the performance is amazing). We even talked about a few specific plugins and starter templates to get you started. Listen to the lastest episode after the jump.

Kentico Rocks Podcast Episode 22

I don't think there could be a more special episode than episode 22 of Kentico Rocks. I say that because it was recorded live with almost all of the Kentico MVPs in the world at the 2019 Kentico MVP Summit in Brno, Czech Republic. Yes that's right your friendly neighborhood MVPs were all gathered in one place for an entire week at Kentico's headquarters. That just does not happen very often.

During the episode you can hear a little bit about what the MVP Summit is and what it takes to be an MVP for Kentico for those interested in the global Kentico development community. We also get into Kentico EMS 12.0 Service Pack 1 details, new Custom Elements and the new Editorial Calendar in Kentico Cloud, and great resources in Github for Kentico developers out there.
