As you know, our mission is to unify the Content Layer and our community is at the heart of this. Every other month, we want to take some time to shine the spotlight on our community members, share insights and valuable resources we’ve noticed in our community and in the larger world of development.

Want to be featured in our next Community Update? Join our community to show off how GraphCMS has powered your project or business and inspire others in the process.

Join Our Livestream With Scott Spence

On Thursday, September 2nd at 3pm CEST, Developer Advocate Scott Spence will lead the charge when it comes to our first of many community livestreams. He has been building two different projects, and will talk about each and the idea and design behind them, including:

  • Social links page, or template for adding all your social links to one place

  • An overview of the latest project Scott is working on with SvelteKit and GraphCMS

Have a question for Scott? Send it to us through our community slack to be read on air!

This Month's Community Spotlight

So many people are using GraphCMS to power their personal and professional projects. Creativity and flexibility are at the center of our community, and we want to take some time every other month to show off what our members are working on.

Art Portfolio

We can't help but be drawn into Ismay Wolff's art portfolio (see what we did there). His simple design pulls your focus right to his unique and captivating artwork. And it doesn't hurt that he relies on GraphCMS for asset management and Next.js as his framework to keep his portfolio running smoothly.

Cadu de Castro Alves built a linktree clone for himself using Next.js, GraphCMS, and Codesandbox. A seemingly simple idea, but brilliant execution and great way for people to find him and his work. We also can't help but love his dedication to staying safe with his avatar mask.
