The idea of the Headless CMS is becoming more and more popular in the industry and is widely seen as the next step for content management. Using the CMS as pure content management and whatever tool you want to build the front-end can give lots of flexibility and also comes with a host of advantages (and its own problems).

But why does everyone talk about JavaScript and Single Page Apps whenever Headless CMS is mentioned? What is the JAM stack? How does Progressive Web Apps fit into all this and why is JavaScript not always the answer when you're serving content to your users?

In this talk I'll cover what a Headless CMS is and why it's useful for both clients and developers, our experience at Studio 24 of using WordPress and Drupal as a Headless CMS and how we tackled building a progressive front-end to a Headless CMS in PHP and Symfony.
