  • Desc: An introduction to the JAMstack from a historical perspective as the next evolution from LAMP and MEAN stacks
  • Description: 20 years ago, Michael Kunze coined the LAMP stack to describe the success of open source architecture on the web, but it also betrayed the server-centric world of the time. 5 years ago, Val Karpov described the MEAN stack as a JavaScript centric alternative straddling frontend and backend worlds. A lot has happened since then. React rose to dominance, AWS Lambda started the Serverless movement, the "API economy" arose to serve developers, and Static Site Generators came back in a big way. What is driving this new stack of Javascript, APIs, and Markup?
  • You will learn about the historical context of developer focus and product differentiation moving from backend to frontend
  • You will be able to explain the problems with serverful architecture
  • You will have a better understanding of the growing startup and open source ecosystem building around the JAMstack
  • You will be able to explain what exactly the fuss is about the JAMstack
