The New Era of Static Web Apps (Dutch Angular Group)

By Wassim Chegham

The New Era of Static Web Apps (Dutch Angular Group)

The web has always been shaped by many trends and the emerging landscape has some surprises in store for us. We are currently witnessing a new era of Web Applications: Static and Serverless Web Applications (or Serverless Static Web Apps). These applications are designed to be fast, reliable, engaging while benefiting from the power, flexibility and scalability of "Serverless". Even if they are created with traditional JavaScript frameworks, such as Angular or Vue, they load and render instantly in your browsers. Join me in this session to find out how to create, configure and deploy your Static Web Apps in a Serverless and geo-distributed environment, while benefiting from a modern and complete CI / CD chain. Are you ready to enter the era of Serverless Static Web Apps?
