From Wordcamp Vancouver 2019...
Renowned local Wordpress expert Morten Rand-Hendriksen of Lynda and Linkedin announced at Vancouver’s recent Wordcamp that he’s retiring from speaking at Wordpress events and gave a closing keynote on his thoughts on the immediate future of the web that echoed what I’ve been saying around the office for the last year or so.
The idea of the monolithic end-to-end CMS solution is old and outdated. We no longer consume data from single sources, and giant monolithic CMSes like WordPress, Drupal that try to do everything for everyone etc are becoming dinosaurs.
I think a [static site generator-type] solution will reign supreme in our immediate future.
The future is static sites (Generated by headless CMSs).

Progressive Web Apps The Future of the Mobile Web.
In recent years, mobile usage has risen to the point where people now spend twice as much time on mobile devices as they do on desktop, and in many countries mobiles are the only device they use. Users demand consistently great experiences on both native apps and mobile websites.
Discover what we really mean by a ‘PWA’, the unique features they offer users, how to build one, and how to assess the results.
PWAs are sites that employ modern technology to deliver native app-like experiences on the web. This e-book explores today’s mobile web experiences and why PWAs provide revolutionary solutions to improving UX on the mobile web. It features case studies of successful projects like Lancome, Trivago, BMW and Pinterest, alongside a selection of important tools and handy resources.
