Book Description

Learn how to run your web projects - everything from simple sites to complex applications - without a single server. It's possible with the JAMstack, a modern web development architecture for deploying fast, highly-scalable sites and applications that don't require traditional origin infrastructure. This practical report explains how the JAMstack delivers better performance, higher security, and lower cost of scaling than server-run web apps.

Based on client-side JavaScript, reusable APIs, and prebuilt Markup, the JAMstack sits at the center of several converging trends and technologies already being used to support today's web projects. Authors Mathias Biilmann and Phil Hawksworth from Netlify demonstrate how the JAMstack drastically improves performance, increases reliability, and reduces the surface for attacks.
