Neos Headless CMS with Nuxt.js
Center Stage

How we use Neos as Headless CMS, the mistakes we made and how it became a product.During Neos Con 2019 you might have already heard about Neos as hybrid CMS to provide data for static sites. Now let's go fully headless with GraphQL and Nuxt.js as frontend framework and static site generator.We discover one way of combining the great content editing experience of Neos and the flexibility of alternative frontend renderers and generators.Topics that will be discussed:

  • GraphQL with Neos
  • Structured content editing
  • Rendering Neos node based content with Nuxt.js
  • Benefits & drawbacks of this approach

Case Study: Passcreator
Center Stage

Since I’ve last talked about our infrastructure back in 2017, a lot has happened. Passcreator grew a lot since then and we’ve also gained customers from currently 32 countries by still using Flow.

How to fix DialogFlow using Neos in your voice assistant
Center Stage

Chatbot and voice assistants are now everywhere - in our smartphones, cars, soon enough even in our fridges. It’s very easy to create own chatbot using DialogFlow engine. This talk would explain how we can use Neos as a source of voice assistant responses and what are its advantages over DialogFlow.

During the talk I will shortly explain how using a DialogFlow engine a simple chatbot or voice assistant can be prepared. I will show what are the limitations of DialogFlow when it goes to returning responses and how we can use Neos to bypass those limitations thanks to headless approach.

Using DialogFlow engine everyone can create his own chatbot or voice assistant. However, DialogFlow has some limitations regarding possibilities of editing content. What is not possible there can be easily done in Neos which can return content via GraphQL or JSON API. Moreover using Neos as content source allows us to be a little bit more independent from review process if it’s required on chatbot/assistant deployment platform.

We used this concept in Action on Google project for a swiss brand Mobiliar, creating Google assistant action in 2 languages (German & French).

Introduction to Asynchronous PHP and ReactPHP
Center Stage

A lot has changed since PHP was used only for rendering web-pages. Now PHP is something more than a request-response cycle. The event-driven architecture and asynchronous I/O processing of any number of streams in real-time allow you to build a whole new category of applications!

In this talk, I will cover the basics of event-driven architecture and asynchronous programming. And ReactPHP is the most popular package that makes it possible to write asynchronous PHP code. We’ll discuss core abstractions such as an event loop, promises, and streams and their implementation in ReactPHP. Then we will dig into some real-world code along with how to leverage it into the traditional synchronous environment.

Neos as PWA with AMP for Migros summer campaign 2019
Center Stage

Mobile first: Neos to provide content for a PWA via headless approach. Performance and mobile search results where KPIs in this project as it had to face high traffic. Ease of use for the customer should also be achieved by an app like behavior. So lets talk about the “grillbuddy”.

For the summer campaign in Switzerland we had high traffic and multi API requirements to face. Product data had to be gathered from client APIs, we delivered a nice PWA so you could take your “gillbuddy” as it was called to the Migros and get everything you needed for a nice evening with friends. We used AMP for better mobile search result ranking and performance as Migros is the biggest brand in Switzerland and we were as top story in the newsletter with 1.25 million recipients. You could connect to your Migros shopping list , had a timer so all your grill goods were perfectly fine.

On the Ethics of Web Development
Center Stage

The past years have shown, that ethics can’t be treated as an afterthought when developing projects on the web. We have an obligation to treat our users and their data ethically, but no one ever really told us how. I’ll try to change that and show you how much power you as developers actually have.

Conference Closing

Thank you all for joining Neos Conference Online 2020. See you next year in Dresden again! Stay safe!

Neos Con 2020 Online Event

Neos Conference is THE annual gathering of the Neos community and we want to keep the spirit alive. This means, that we need to think about new ways to gather this year. As you know, all the conference talks are streamed live during the event and are uploaded shortly after. So, bringing the conference online is not completely new to us.

Nevertheless, running the entire conference with over 30 talks and 2 tracks online seems a bit too much for us. Therefore, we'll do the following:

  • There is one track of online-talks on June 18th and 19th 2020
  • This is going to be completely free of charge
  • We will record all the talks and upload them to YouTube afterwards.
  • There will also be online rooms for socialising and talking about other topics.

We hope that this will fill the gap in a somehow appropriate way.

Stay healthy!

We would not be here, without the contribution of so many people around the world, as well as Neos Conference would not be such a success without the sponsoring of multiple great companies!
