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 COVID-19, we will be hosting this meetup virtually on Tues, April 20th at 5 p.m. EST!
This month, we will have three awesome talks all brought to you by our Frequent JAMer Sponsor TakeShape.io!
Our first talk will be from a member of TakeShape showing the speed and ease of using an API mesh to achieve a consistent content experience for your JAMstack websites.
For our next speaker, Shawn Wang (@swyx), will talk about Technical Community Builder, the hottest new job in tech. Shawn will address such questions as: who builds developer communities, why companies are investing in them, and why now?
Shawn's Bio: is Head of Developer Experience at Temporal.io, cofounder of Svelte Society, author of the Coding Career Handbook and most recently advocated for JAMstack at AWS and Netlify.
Flor Antara (@techflor) will be giving the third talk of the night: "Powering up your JAMStack website with Stackbit." Flor will show us what Stackbit is and how to get a JAMStack website up and running in a few minutes using the live editor experience to make site updates super quick!
Flor's Bio: Flor is a Fullstack Engineer at Zipwhip and a JAMstack advocate. Apart from organizing the JAMstack Seattle meetup, she’s always experimenting with something, creating prototypes, bringing ideas to life and sharing around what she learned. She’s from Argentina, so feel free to say “Hola!”
As always, the intent of this meetup is to collaborate, network, learn, grow and most importantly have fun! Here's the agenda:
5:00 - 5:05 Welcoming Remarks
