Putting the JAM back in JAMstack

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Mike Neumegen, my favorite Kiwi, about the future of Jamstack for his What the Jam podcast series.

We talked about a lot of things, including…

  • Why I think JAMstack was a more useful approach when it was spelt with the capital JAM and actually an acronym.
  • How SPAs built with React are technically Jamstack by definition, but not in spirit.
  • How server-rendered HTML might actually be Jamstack in spirit, even if it’s not by definition.
  • The real power of the Jamstack approach: portability.
  • How the Jamstack is just one tool in a bigger toolkit around building simpler, faster websites (and one that’s not always the right fit).

If you found this talk interesting, I help my clients transition to Jamstack (and other lean web technologies).

I’ve worked with some really awesome clients, including NASA, Harvard Business School, and the A11Y Project. I’d love to help you, too. Get in touch.

And if you want to learn how to do this kind of thing yourself, the Lean Web Club is an amazing learning platform that I think you’ll love. Join for free today.
