The HubSpot CMS Developer Discovery Kit

Written By Luke Summerfield on Oct 10, 2018 10:47:14 AM

Here at HubSpot, we’re committed to creating the world’s most lovable and collaborative CMS development experience. Over the past year, we’ve doubled-down on our CMS, making a lot of changes and improvements with ease-of-use and flexibility in mind.

But if you’re new to our CMS, or any CMS, it takes time to get started. You need to dive into the tool, poke around to see what is and isn’t possible, establish a workflow that works for you, eventually get certified, and understand the resources available to you. Embarking on this journey of CMS mastery alone can be daunting.

With that in mind, we’re proud to launch our Hubspot CMS Developer Discovery Kit - your quick-start guide for learning how to build and code on HubSpot CMS. Whether you are new to the HubSpot CMS, or you’re hiring a new developer, the kit will help get you up and running in under an hour.

What’s included?

Access to our Developer Slack Community

Developers from a variety of backgrounds and industries work on the HubSpot CMS. Through our Discovery Kit, you’ll gain access to an active community of over 800 developers who are collaborating and sharing their own tricks for developing on the HubSpot CMS.

A free CMS Developer Sandbox

Even if you haven’t purchased HubSpot yet, you can still spin up a free CMS developer sandbox and get familiar with the tool. The Discovery Kit will help you set this up. 

This will be a full-feature CMS portal with no pre-existing data. It's your place to explore, trial-and-error, and learn.
