Talk details:
Scott McAllister from PagerDuty will talk about "Getting going with Gatsby":
"Gatsby is a React-based framework and static site generator that is taking the Internet by storm! It powers thousands of sites as popular as ReactJS and Nike - Just Do it, as well countless others. And why not? Gatsby provides a platform for building blazing fast web sites that have tools for SEO, Accessibility and Progressive Web Apps built in! In this talk you’ll learn about what makes Gatsby unique, how to start a Gatsby site from scratch, and how to use the tools necessary for building and deploying your own Gatsby sites."

Then, Tessa Mero from Cloudinary will present “Finding the Jelly in the JAMStack”:
"With JAMStack being a major trend in web development lately, it is becoming more commonly adopted, and an alternative to LAMP and MEAN stack. With the ability to create better performing websites that can scale, I will go over several business use cases on how JAMStack made them more successful and will go over what technologies they used to accomplish this. Let’s find all the good jelly that the JAMStack has to offer!"
