Event description
Join us for this full day hands-on workshop on JAMstack!

About this Event

The JAMstack is a web application architecture that provides an approach to building websites that consolidates many modern technology trends. JAMstack ("JAM", an acronym for JavaScript, APIs, and Markup) is rapidly growing in popularity for its many benefits including better performance, improved security, and a lower cost of scaling than conventional alternatives.

Some of the most popular underlying technologies of the JAMstack architecture include Gatsby and NetlifyCMS. Gatsby is a Progressive Web App (PWA) compliant static site generator built using React and GraphQL that allows developers to build blazing fast websites. Gatsby is a top choice for developers looking for a future-proof, scalable, and highly performant option. NetlifyCMS is a free and open-source headless content management system (CMS) that pairs very well with Gatsby. The real-time preview, unlimited user-roles, and rich plugin ecosystem make this an ideal choice to add dynamic content management to the JAMstack solution.

The JAMstack Bootcamp was designed and developed by Aquent DEV6 web application developers who use JAMstack architecture in real-life projects. The course is highly interactive and features a significant number of hands-on student labs to consolidate knowledge.
