    We all know how hard it is to follow new developments when you are working daily on a project where the decisions about the technology have been made and a deadline is approaching. It is even more liberating when the project is finished and there is time again to check out the latest and greatest new framework or concept. Over the last years, innovative concepts on top of cloud providers have become mainstream. Things like Jamstack architecture are now part of many technology evaluations.

    A What-stack?

    Jamstack. The word is Jamstack and is a combination of JAM and stack. JAM is an acronym formed by the first initial of JavaScript, API (which is again an acronym), and Markup. It was initially coined by Netlify co-founder Mathias Biilmann and refers to the three main components of this architectural approach:

    • JavaScript handles all of the dynamic functionality for websites without placing any restrictions on which framework or library is used.

    • Server-side functionality is made accessible by APIs (REST, GraphQL, …), which are then accessed over HTTPS using JavaScript.

    • And finally, websites are served as pre-rendered static HTML files (Markup). These can be generated from source files using a Static Site Generator.

    To help you catch up with the Jamstack and how it is useful for your day-to-day tasks we have collected the best free Jamstack courses for you.
