Welcome to the JAMstack Boston! Prepare for an exciting lineup of speakers in the areas of static site generation, the modern web ecosystem, web apps and web hosting and performance solutions.
The JAMstack is not about specific technologies. It’s a new way of building websites and apps that delivers better performance, higher security, lower cost of scaling, and a better developer experience. No rendering means greatly reduced attack surface area for malware, ultra fast hosting on CDN, no debugging php or optimising rendertimes, and a super cheap way to scale your hosting.
JAMstack Boston is increasingly looking to power a larger part of tomorrow's internet!
Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, we will be hosting our second virtual JAMstack Boston Meetup on Tues, August 18th at 6 p.m.!
This month, we have 2 speakers, Jesse Rykerson, who will be giving a talk on StrapiJS, and Aristotle Anderson, who will be giving a talk on Firebase.
When developing simple, scalable JAMstack applications, there are a wide variety of APIs to use when routing with your client depending on the use and functionality of your application, from CMS's for setting up your E-commerce platform to cloud application development platforms for hosting your web applications. StrapiJS and Firebase each provide a wide variety of features for JAMstack applications, and we will look into their functionalities and how they interact back-and-forth with the client.
Jesse Rykerson is a web developer who runs his freelance site, Rykode Web Development.
Aristotle (@LouisWinthropX) is an entrepreneur and full stack software engineer who is currently developing his very own Fintech platform.
As always, the intent of this meetup is to collaborate, network, learn, grow and most importantly have fun! Here's the agenda:
6:00 - 6:15 Welcome, virtual networking
6:15 - 6:25 Opening remarks
6:25 - 6:55 StrapiJS and client interaction with Jesse Rykerson
6:55 - 7:25 Firebase and client interaction with Aristotle Anderson
7:25 - 7:45 Closing remarks, more virtual networking
Also, we are excited to announce that we now have our own dedicated Slack channel under the BostonJS Slack group! For those who have already joined the BostonJS Slack group, you can join our Slack channel at # _jamstack_meetup where we will be posting meetup updates and general JAMstack-related discussions.
Look forward to seeing everyone!
