The Web Ahead #101: Structuring Content with Eileen Webb

April 7, 2015 at 1:45PM • 1 hour 22 minutes

For years, we've put content on websites by dumping text, images and video onto a page like it's one big blob. In the age of mobile, it's become painfully clear that really doesn't work anymore. Planning a content system of types and fields yields much better results. Why? How? Eileen Webb joins Jen Simmons to explain exactly what this means.
