CRUD for Content

CRUD for Content

  • Comments 0

While we’ve been thinking through content strategies and content experiences, one of the phrases I started using to quickly share an idea is “CRUD for Content.”   It’s modeled after CRUD operations for applications – CREATE, READ, UPDATE, DELETE.  It’s simple, but it quickly helps folks relate to the simple operations you can do with content as a user:

  • Browse it
  • Search it
  • Save it
  • Share it

Sure there are plenty of variations off of that, but it’s a helpful backdrop to start from when thinking through experiences for finding, searching, saving, and sharing content on MSDN.
