What we're about

Welcome to JAMstack PHL! — A meetup focused on building websites and apps that delivers better performance, higher security, lower cost of scaling, and better developer experiences.

What is the JAMstack?

Your project is built with the JAMstack if it meets three key criteria:

Any dynamic programming during the request/response cycle is handled by JavaScript, running entirely on the client. This could be any frontend framework, library, or even vanilla JavaScript.

All server-side processes or database actions are abstracted into reusable APIs, accessed over HTTPS with JavaScript. These can be custom-built or leverage third-party services.

Templated markup should be prebuilt at deploy time, usually using a site generator for content sites, or a build tool for web apps.

Formerly, Front-End Philly

Modern front-end development has evolved beyond discussions on CSS and JS. It now encompasses a larger ever-changing landscape of frameworks, APIs and microservices that make up a front-end developers toolkit. The decision to update Front-end Philly to JAMstack PHL is to welcome those ideas, members and grow its community.
