Jamstack Resources: Where Do Jamstackers Hang Out?

2023 TL;DR. Discords, Livestreams from general well known influencers (yes, we have those in dev as well).

Updated on Feb 6, 2023: Three years in and here is another update to Jamstack resources page.
Updated on Jan 25, 2022: Two years is a lot of time, especially in the tech world where things change fast. Originally I wrote this post back in 2020. Since then, I got COVID 2 times, got vaccinated 3 times, still managed to travel a couple of times, and changed my job. Back then, I was working for Bejamas (last year’s Jamstack Agency Of The Year🏆). While making the Jamstack ecosystem infographic, I wanted to map the resources/communities (loose terms here that involve a lot of different types of channels) where jamstackers like to hang out.

In 2022 the scene became a bit different with Gitter and Spectrum died as channels for pretty much everyone, Discord becoming more important than Slack, etc. So, what's up this year?

Discord communities rule + the biggest change is the fact that the lines in dev became even more blurred than before. The dance between static and dynamic websites became a complex one dictated by use case rather than tech/approach one would use on a project. Even the definition of jamstack somewhat changed.

With wider appearance and adoption of the Jamstack architecture we've seen a lot of other communities opening channels for discussion about Jamstack and the tools in the space. We've also seen Jamstack devs opting out for Twitch/YT streams, podcasts and influncers from different web tech areas not just Jamstack. But the problem is the same, i.e., how to prioritize who to follow, visit, and add in the list?

For better or for worse, I came up with my system. I make a difference between:

  • general channels that cover Jamstack (and possibly more);
  • channels that are specific for a static site generator people rely on (on top of being free to use, I think SSGs are crucial definer for many of us making their channels neck-to-neck with the general ones);
  • tool support channels (while all of these are hugely helpful and important, they are bound by the company that runs them); and
  • influncers previously known as education section (no better way to explain these but they are a mix of YT/Twitch channels and podcasts).

Now, it goes without saying that you should follow the support channels of your preferred tools, right? Let’s say you host your project on Vercel, they provide support at their GitHub acc. If you use Netlify, there is a Netlify community where you can ask questions or just hang out with Netlifyers. DatoCMS, one of the headless CMSs in the space, has its Slack channel here. Website search option many of us use Algolia has a community forum. We at Crystallize have a 🔥Crystallize Slack community that’s not only for support questions 🙃

Helpful as they are, I won’t be including all of these here. The list that follows, while it may have tool support channels as well, is set communities/channels that helped me the most (and still do) on my Jamstack journey.

I just realized most channels are around JS frontends...sorry Hugo, Jekyll etc people it's not that I've forgotten you it' more that my focus is on js. But I'd be happy to add your suggestions.
