PRO TALK (API): Make Content Queryable: How to Build a Real-Time Document Store That Scales Globally

Customer-facing applications are increasingly integrated across the business, driven by a host of workflows spanning departments and even organizations. From marketing to e-commerce and all the way into the heart of product, content is powering all of our customer interactions, yet it is so often treated as an afterthought, handled by an amalgam of disconnected databases, isolated systems and, god forbid, a patchwork of spreadsheets.

There is a better way. In this talk, I'll outline how to build a modern, scalable content infrastructure, then walk you through the important steps you need to take to build that resilient, collaborative, global content store. I'll introduce the concept of a “Content Lake", similar to a data lake, and discuss the specifics of the Sanity Content Lake, a turn-key system for content orchestration that provides a single source of truth. We also invented GROQ, a flexible query for schemaless JSON documents, that's used to power GraphQL and other APIs. This lets you integrate content across internal tools and systems so applications run smoothly with the right content at the right time.
