Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: Business as Unusual

Welcome to the 135th issue of the New Dynamic Newsletter. The first newsletter went out December 3rd, 2016 when Gatsby's 1.0 was in alpha, DatoCMS was coming out of beta and Jekyll was probably still the biggest thing in static sites. Fast Forward to 2020: Je…

Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: Consider the Hugo

Asking for some help on a Hugo-based web project, my friend started the conversation by saying "I really like Javascript frameworks, but they're not so good at what I need them for: building lots of pages." The conversation went well. :wink: In a few weeks I…

Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: Nothing but the .1%

We've had some interesting conversations lately spurred by the steady march of Javascript frameworks into the JAMstack space. Both Nuxt (Vue) and Next (React) are soon releasing full-static mode. It's nice knowing you can use one tool to build nearly anything…

Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: Things are Heating Up

I saw a great presentation by Paul Calvano from Akamai last week on the adoption of web performance techniques. The web is failing (See the image below) except for SEO. A lot of that dismal performance comes from images and third-party scripts, but I can't he…

Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter:

While writing this, I'm watching the presidential debates. It's funny when the candidates sneak in pitches to visit their website, the one place that tells their story. Not only does that underscore the importance of our field, but also reminds me of the 2012…

Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: Scaling Up Scaling Down

We had a great set of talks at our last JAMstack.NYC event. Jeff Escalante shook things up declaring that the best static site might not be static at all; someone even walked out during his talk! Afterward, in our Slack community, we had conversations about w…

Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: Jan-25 - Happy Chinese New Year Edition

In the Chinese Zodiac, the Rat represents the beginning of a new day. I like that. Maybe the Year of the Rat is the beginning of a new day for content editors. Now that the headless CMS beast has been unleashed the race is on. Early CMSs didn't really focus o…

Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: Jan-18

Question for you folks. The newsletter is big. Lots going on in the JAMstack world every week. Are event listings helpful? Online, for sure, but you are a global audience, so the chance that something other than a big conference is going to be close to you is…

Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: 1/11/2020 - The Year of Perfect Vision

2020 is beginning with an identity crisis. This week, the folks at JAMstack.org changed "JAM" to "jam" throughout the site, upsetting many (well a small many, including myself!). Maybe it's a good change. I think the JAM in JAMstack leads newcomers to belie…

Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: 01/04/2020

JAMstack.NYC event - January 14th: Jeff Escalante from Hashicorp on NextJS, and Jeff Posnick from Google on PWAs - limited seating.I agree with Brian Rinaldi when he says JAMstack in 2020 will move "from a curious niche in web development to becoming one of t…

Build Better Faster Websites: the New Dynamic Newsletter: 12/21

It's been an amazing year and really rewarding to see our community grow and the ecosystem mature as ever more people discover JAMstack. I think 2020 will bring ever more pushing the boundaries of "static" sites (don't say static!) and some interesting surpri…
