Details

This is the first Valtech Paris front-end meetup. In this installment we explore the evolution of modern front-end development while working on CMS systems like Wordpress, Sitecore and Adobe AEM. We have two talks that offer insights in how to apply modern front-end on Wordpress and on what the future of application architecture could be with JAMstack.

# Talk 1
## Using modern front-end techniques to make your Wordpress set-up more scalable and fun.
By Geoffrey Casaubon

Working as a web developer in a corporate environment is not always easy. Monolithic platforms force web developers to produce code in a way that does not scale on the modern web. This talk will show how to use bleeding-edge technologies with platforms that are not meant for it. Using Wordpress as an example we will show how to achieve a component based headless system that scales like a charm (aka the quest of front-end nirvana...)

# Talk 2
## JAMstack is the future. I think. Maybe.
By Tim Benniks

In this talk I explore the JAMstack concept. I will show you what I came up with after creating a proof of concept application with Netlify, Azure, Strava and Vue.js. JAMstack is a great approach to scalable, fast and secure web applications. Let's see if it lives up to the hype.
