Content is Data: recapping a memorable day for Sanity

A look back at the Content is Data open house

Sanity’s virtual open house, Content is Data, brought together 500+ developers, editors, and business leaders from around the world. We had representation from 40 countries, with a few people staying up way past their bedtimes in Singapore to participate in the event.

In some ways, it was the culmination of months, even years, of work. Sanity announced Content Lake, a real-time database for structured content. It revolutionizes how you can think about – and interact with – your content to deliver amazing experiences.

But more importantly, the open house was an opportunity to engage with the Sanity community and ecosystem in a fun way. The talks ranged from roundtable discussions with e-commerce leaders to showcasing superb starter projects to hearing how Sanity helped developers empower their marketing team. Plus, the entire Sanity team stuck around for a few hours after the talks were done to hang out with the attendees.
