All too often we think long and hard about UX on user-facing pages but neglect the ones used day after day by those working behind the scenes. Out of the box Drupal's content authoring experience is powerful but isn't known for being user-friendly. Managing content becomes even more difficult once a site is adapting to different devices and screen sizes. All of this leads to recurring pain points and, more often than not, sites with stale content.

This session will look at the approach we've taken at Grain (http://grainforall.com/) to better equip content creators. Walking through the UI as well as the code behind the scenes to make it happen, you'll learn how to improve UX and empower content creators.
