Giving the JAMstack a go
A brief summary of how this portfolio was built using the JAMstack approach.
I've been doing front end development in WordPress and Drupal. Although I've enjoyed working with both CMS:es, some aspects of the front-end development have been challenging and complicated – things like performance- and image-optimisation for example. Furthermore, keeping plugins and modules secure and up to date to make sure that sites are up and running, it is not only time consuming but also one of the less inspiring parts of the job. What if I would be able to get away from that?
The JAMstack approach
The JAMstack approach immediately caught my attention once I read about it. Smooth and flexible developer experience, being able to deliver secure, fast sites right out of the box while reducing the backend complexity is pretty much all I've ever wanted:
JAMstack is revolutionising the way we think about workflow by providing a simpler developer experience, better performance, lower cost and greater scalability.
Building a website has never been more fun, rewarding and inspiring. The site you're currently visiting is built using Gatsby for static site generation, with Strapi as headless CMS, Heroku (PaaS) for hosting Strapi and hosted on Netlify.
