The Devex NewsLab: Using Google Docs as a CMS
Note: This post was originally published on the Devex Tech Blog
This article describes our current content management solution and gives some insight on the parts of the implementation we think are interesting.
As you might know a big part of our website is dedicated to News content covering various aspects of international development. At Devex we usually publish around 10 articles per day which are sometimes planned and worked on several days or even weeks in advance. There are different people involved in the process including both internal and external writers, editors, researchers or marketing folks. Some of them contribute to the article's content while others just need to be aware what is going on to coordinate their own work like social media campaigns.
