This is no ordinary edition of the DXP Report.

This is no ordinary edition of the DXP Report.

We’ve officially re-launched DXP Report with a new website design to host thought pieces, exclusive news coverage, and (pretty soon), podcast episodes.

Last week, we spoke exclusively to Netlify Co-founder Chris Bach and VP of Developer Experience Jason Lengstorf. Following their $105M Series D, we asked if Netlify was now focused on targeting enterprise customers rather than grassroots developers.

Elsewhere, Storyblok V2 Early Preview was announced, Commercetools acquired Frontastic, our Founder Kaya Ismail published “The DXP Industry is a Maze of Glass-walled Echo Chambers”.

To date, we’ve attracted hundreds of subscribers from the largest players in the DXP space. Our next mission is to become the industry’s leading conversation hub. Storyblok V2 Early Preview is Here Starting from today, Storyblok V2 Early Preview will be available to all Storyblok users. After seeing the feedback from the community, Storyblok is now offering the V2 Early Preview to everyone with a Storyblok account.
