Boy are we ending the year with a bang! 3 Speakers, 3 amazing topics, 3 something else's (shrug).

# Phil Hawksworth - What, why and how to JAMstack

Modern tools and services can make cost effective web development far more powerful and dynamic than ever before. And the maturing ecosystem is blossoming to make things ever easier.

In this talk, Phil will explain the approach of using JavaScript, APIs and Markup (popularly referred to as the JAMstack). We'll explore the advantages it has over other architectures and take a practical look at using Netlify to build and host sites this way. He'll demonstrate techniques useful to beginners and enterprise clients alike.

We'll publish and update a new site. We'll roll our site back to any previous version. We'll create staging and production environments and try lots of other goodies.

# Sophie Weston - Stop starting, start finishing

Sophie will be sharing her DevOps expertise on how Kanban can help you get more done!

# Andy Callaghan - Making a website performant: Part II
