Become a headless ecommerce master via our professional development programme

Headless ecommerce delivered by distance learning

Emerge ahead after COVID-19 by becoming a headless ecommerce master via our new professional learning and development programme. We’ve partnered with commercetools, the industry-leading commerce platform, to deliver an 8-module headless ecommerce programme lasting four months and culminating with an interactive masterclass in London, in October.

Designed for technology, ecommerce, digital and marketing professionals, the professional development programme is divided into eight core modules that take you through the stages of digital transformation, developing or updating your digital strategy, an introduction to headless ecommerce and how to implement your new ecommerce infrastructure using microservices and APIs.

Each module focuses on a core downloadable resource and at the end of each month, we are hosting a webinar when you can discuss the programme content with our experts and guest speakers. Selected modules will feature additional technical supplements to support your learning from commercetools and partners, enterprise architecture experts Gradient Edge.

The programme dates for your diary are:

These additional learning materials will be published on the core programme module pages, on our blog channel, and via social media, so follow our accounts on Twitter and LinkedIn for the latest updates.

We are also hosting three webinars during the programme. Each webinar provides the opportunity to learn directly from commercetools and Profound experts and talk through key learning points and relevant case studies. Selected webinars will also include speakers from our partners. The first webinar will be hosted at 11:00 on Wednesday 10 June, lasting around 45 minutes. There will be time afterwards for further discussion.

After the eighth module, the programme culminates in a masterclass event in London in October. This provides you with a month of preparation to finalise your headless ecommerce strategy. There will be a focus on different audiences with both joint and parallel technical and marketing workshops. Our team, alongside commercetools, will be on hand to facilitate the workshops. There will be plenty of time for breakouts, one-to-one sessions and discussion. Naturally, the latest social distancing measures will be observed at the event to ensure your safety.

Why headless ecommerce?

Headless ecommerce futureproofs your business and is the most effective approach for modern retail. Underpinning this approach is the separation of front-end and back-end functionality, instead connected via APIs that allow you to integrate best-of-breed solutions for every commerce function.

Going headless means you can achieve faster digital success.

What will you learn?

Digital transformation and upgrading your digital estate are no longer a time consuming and costly exercise. Our headless ecommerce masterclass enables you to develop and build on the professional skills required to implement headless ecommerce solutions that futureproof your digital estate and deliver a faster return on investment.

You will gain end-to-end expertise of headless ecommerce. The programme takes you through modern retail problems, migration challenges and solutions, and API and headless architecture. Focusing on these core areas will provide you with the digital know-how to deliver a new digital transformation strategy or update your current strategy and skills with an alternative approach.
