JAMstack is the future. I think. Maybe.
JAMstack is everywhere lately. It’s supposed to be the messiah that saves us from monolithic application architectures that have difficulties with scaling, performance and security. To prepare this talk I spend my evenings building an app to see if JAMstack is indeed the way to go. It’s called “Strava Visualize” and it’s based on JAMstack. I chose to use the fanciest stuff to build it: a PWA with Vue.js, Azure functions, Azure CDN, Gitlab-CI and the Strava API. In this talk I explain JAMstack and the basics of cloud architecture. JAMstack is a great approach to create scalable, fast and secure web applications. It has some drawbacks though. Check this talk out to see if it lives up to the hype.
