Useful resources for Silverstripe Framework and CMS

Silverstripe CMS is an open source PHP framework for building web applications. It is a rapid development MVC framework that serves as a classic fully fledged CMS or as a headless CMS, which can be queried either via GraphQL or a custom API. Following the "Active Record" design pattern, you can easily extend the built-in functionality with a project specific data model.
