TALK DESCRIPTION

The official definition of JAMstack is a website technology stack built on JavaScript, APIs, and markup. It is an architecture designed to make the web faster, more secure, and easier to scale. It builds on many of the tools and workflows which developers love.

But don't confuse a JAMstack website with something that is purely static and unable to be easily modified, achieve dynamic functionality, or be integrated with other services. This is simply not the case.

In my talk, I'll show you how to leverage the JAMstack architecture. We will demo some tools and solutions that make it a breeze to use static site generators, headless CMS, and high powered CDNs. Ultimately you will learn how to deliver a static website that can be deployed easily on dozens of services and perform like nothing you have seen before.
