Getting into the JAMstack with Static Site Generators

Jessica Parsons, Netlify

Static site generators are a cornerstone of the JAMstack — essential learning for anyone looking to build modern sites and apps that are fast, secure, scalable, and efficient to maintain.

But there are lots to choose from — Jekyll, Gatsby, and Hugo, to name a few — and you may wonder about their limitations. This workshop will answer your questions, give you plans and strategies for future projects, and leave you with a fully-functioning static-generated site that’s capable of more than you might have expected.

Orchestrating the Data Layer with GraphQL

Jesse Martin, GraphCMS

Whether you fetch data pre-build or post, data is the benevolent dictator of the modern web. The JAMstack has freed us from the heavy opinion of the monolith CMS. Modern tools let us compose the services and styles together like never before. Now, with the advent of GraphQL and schema stitching, our data get’s the same level of orchestration. We can bring together APIs from across the web into a single, unified API to help us bring our sites to life.

New Front-End Adventures, 2019 Edition

Vitaly Friedman, Smashing Magazine

With HTTP/2, Service Workers, Progressive Web Apps, Variable Fonts, CSS Custom Properties, Client Hints and Resource Hints, Flexbox, CSS Grid Layout, SVG, WAI-ARIA roles and Font Loading API now available in browsers, we all are still trying to figure out just the right strategy for designing and building for the web efficiently. We want to use all of these technologies and smart processes, but how can we use them efficiently, and how do we achieve it within a reasonable amount of time?

What's the the most optimized way to compress text, optimize images, deliver and contain third-party scripts, conduct A/B testing, manage web fonts, build layouts, streamline delivery of CSS/JS, serve static assets and architect a flexible and maintainable design system? Oh my, in the workshop, we'll cover it all. We'll explore how to utilize all of those wonderful shiny web technologies we have available today, and how to deal with legacy browsers along the way. We'll also cover a few techniques that might ensure that your websites and apps will stay flexible and accessible in the years to come. Beware: you won't be able to unlearn the things that you'll learn in the workshop!
