Two requirements that come up constantly on projects are “How do we make it easier for non-technical users to update our website?” And “How can we give content editors more flexibility?"

At the same time, responsive design, content portability, and accessibility concerns are increasingly important. Now more than ever, we need to make sure that by adding flexibility, we’re not sacrificing semantic markup and data.

In this session, I'll show the differences between how Paragraphs and Layout Builder solve these problems, and give suggestions about which to use to solve different use cases. I'll draw on usability studies comparing the two platforms, and draw from this blog post comparing the two options (https://evolvingweb.ca/blog/designing-flexible-content-model-drupal-lay…). I'll also talk about alternatives like Acquia Cohesion and Gutenberg and how they fit into the ecosystem.
