There are so many great things about November. The basketball season is back on, we are full on into fall season, and the 2nd JAMstack TORONTO meetup of the month. How's that possible?? Well when ppl travel to two and hit you up for opportunities, we don't say no. We never turn down opportunities to learn from dev rels as this is the time to come w/ all the q?s you might have. It's the best way to provide for the dev community.

Speaking of community, we're again proud to announce that we're working and collaborating w/ another meetup. This time, we're proud to share a room w/ SERVERLESS TORONTO. With the nature of one of the talks, and possibly a few more - we just think it's wise to reach out to other groups who can also benefit from the content. Added bonus, always good work with a new community to meet new folks - and hear about other opportunities. That being said, we're announcing the Nov 14th 2019 meetup:

⚡️ Talk 1: Are you being servered? — Exploring a “serverless” web by Phil Hawkesworth.

JAMstack is an emerging term which describes an approach to architecting and delivering sites as pre-rendered assets, and where necessary, enhancing them with JavaScript and services via APIs

There has never been a better time for a fresh look at how we approach building and delivering web sites and applications. From the careful selection of JavaScript libraries and frameworks, to the use of emerging tools, services, and platforms.

In this talk we’ll explore how an application can be built to include pre-rendered user interface elements and dynamic APIs backed with data services. All without needing to manage or maintain a server.

⚡️ Talk 2: Keeping your secrets with Netlify Functions by Daniel Favand & Shadda Mohammed

Netlify lets you deploy serverless Lambda functions without an AWS account, and with function management handled directly within Netlify. Stay tuned for a more detailed abstract to see how Deloitte Digital employs Functions in their workflow.

⚡️ Talk 3 (lightning): Reshaping e-commerce with Gatsby / Shopify and finite state machines by Diego La Manno
