JAMstack for Back-End Developers

JAMstack is a set of best practices for building decoupled front-ends with a heavy emphasis on build-time rendering.

It’s quickly gaining popularity because the managed services and front-end tooling have reached a tipping point where it’s now easy to make great static sites at build time.

Because of this, the responsibilities of Front-End and Back-End developers are changing. Check out the slides to see where I think things are going.

Working with the code
