jamStack : the what now?

teamallnighter profile image Chris Connelly ・1 min read

Im super excited about Jamstack. When it comes to serving pages, technology hasn't changed for a very long time. The traditional LAMP stack was old, sluggish and coasting.

What are you even talking about?

JAMstack is revolutionising the way we think about workflow by providing a simpler developer experience, better performance, lower cost and greater scalability.

JAM stands for JavaScript, API & Markup.

BENEFITS

Faster performance

Serve pre-built markup and assets over a CDN

More secure

No need to worry about server or database vulnerabilities

Less expensive

Hosting of static files are cheap or even free

Better developer experience

Front end developers can focus on the front end, without being tied to a monolithic architecture. This usually means quicker and more focused development

Scalability

If your product suddenly goes viral and has many active users, the CDN seamlessly compensates
