Brian McKeiver to Speak at Tech Watch 2019
BizStream’s Co-Owner and Solution Architect, Brian McKeiver, will be speaking at The first annual Detroit Tech Watch on June 29, 2019. This day-long event focuses on looking toward the future of software development by bringing in nationally recognized speakers to discuss cutting edge ideas in software development and new programming languages.

Catch Brian’s Session

Find Brian's first session, Do Not Build a Website with Last Decade’s Tech, at 9:10 am. View the full abstract below:
It’s 2019, promise me you will stop implementing large monolithic applications that take forever to load and even longer to develop on. The future of the web is JavaScript, APIs, and Markup; known as the JAMstack. See how GatsbyJS, Headless CMS, and GraphQL are the next decade’s tech instead.

Sites that take forever and a day to render a web page have horrible consequences to your users and your goals, and don’t just take my word for it. A recent study by Akamai shows that every 100-millisecond delay in website load time can hurt conversion rates by 7%. That’s because the tech we have been using was architected long ago.

Join my session and I’ll show you how to leverage a Microservice Architecture, the best Static Site Generator out there, Headless CMS, and Microsoft Azure to deliver a static website that can be deployed easily on dozens of services. You will be able to forget about the last decade’s tech problems of complicated deploys, server maintenance, and scaling fears.
