JAMstack & Performance
Session 1: Performance and Authentication Gerald Onyango (https://twitter.com/futuregerald) will discuss authentication, and how it affects performance. He'll compare using session cookies vs JWT (JSON Web Tokens) tokens, and the benefits of JWT which can be used to authenticate requests and pass data on the frontend, on the CDN edge, in functions, and on third party servers, without having to make round trips back to your database for each request. Gerald spent many years doing IT, moved in to support engineering. Now, he does development and support at Netlify. Session 2: Even Better Performance for your Website using JAMstack tools and Techniques Bud Parr (https://twitter.com/budparr) will show examples of tools and strategies to wring out every bit of performance from your website and get great Lighthouse scores (and what Lighthouse is). He will review getting the most out of static site generators and CDNs, techniques for loading assets and more. Bud is a Web Developer and Designer in New York City. He runs The New Dynamic, devoted to JAMstack tools and techniques and is organizer of the upcoming JAMstack NYC conference in the Spring of 2019. This is a joint session with JAMstack NYC, check out their page as well: https://www.meetup.com/JAMstack-nyc/ Meetup is hosting us again. And they still have food and beer!
