  • Contentful: We use contentful as our headless CMS for the blog and our products. It has a lot of integrations to Netlify and Github to make our work connect our different services together.
  • Netlify:  This is our selected choice for managing the hosting and the CI/CD. We don't have to worry about having a complete set of knowledge of DevOps and Netlify helps us to focus on the more important stuff.
  • Gatsby:  is a modern website framework that can be used to generate static sites by using its unique front-end web building experience. Using React, Gatsby turns static data sources into dynamic websites that function as single-page apps.
