The Embedded Image Preview (EIP) technique introduced in this article allows us to load preview images during lazy loading using progressive JPEGs, Ajax and HTTP range requests without having to transfer additional data.
So, #ReactGate has become a thing. I’m not going to try and describe the events that led to these particular events. Suffice to say it has raised serious issues about how the tech community tolerates and allows the far right and white supremacists within its ranks.

These reasons are partially related to the events above. But not totally.
In this session, we’ll demystify this buzzwordy term, and explore how this approach to simplifying the technology stack can lead to shorter development times, with better performance and greater security. We’ll see how the JAMstack is placing more power, more confidence, and more capabilities in the hands of designers, authors, and front-end developers. And we’ll show how serverless functions can augment this stack to let us rapidly build interfaces and APIs to power sites that we’d be brave enough to share with the world.
