All things JAMStack

All things JAMStack

Description: In this episode we have a real treat with two amazing speakers, Guillermo Rauch (Vercel) and Cassidy Williams (Netlify)! They will discuss what the reality beyond the hype is, how to use the Jamstack in production and how Nextjs fits in with the Jamstack.


Jamstack and the rise of the frontend

We've all heard about the rise of Jamstack and serverless, but what's the reality beyond the hype? How do I use the Jamstack in production? Why is Jamstack shifting company's investments towards frontend development, react, design systems and components, instead of the backend? In this talk we'll answer these questions, provide actionable guidance on how to benefit from Jamstack for your next big project, and discuss why Auth0 is perfectly positioned to be the "A" in "JAM".
