Jamstack Conf will Celebrate Web Developers and the Modern Web Ecosystem

SAN FRANCISCO – September 30, 2021 – The agenda is now live for Jamstack Conf, October 6-7, 2021, a virtual event bringing together tens of thousands of developers and technology leaders building the future of the web. This year’s theme is “how it started; how it’s going” highlighting how quickly the modern web ecosystem of build tools and API services has grown up in the last five years. It has enabled large-scale and dynamic use cases, such as the Twilio Console migration to the Jamstack featured at the event.

Jamstack Conf is a uniquely inclusive event, bringing together all of the JavaScript framework communities and site generators (11ty, Astro, Gatsby.js, Next.js, Nuxt, React, Redwood, SvelteKit, Vue.js and more), the emerging serverless database ecosystem (CockroachDB, DataStax, Fauna, Hasura, StepZen, Supabase), headless e-commerce players (BigCommerce, Commerce Layer, Shogun, Shopify, Snipcart) and headless CMS providers (Contentful, GraphCMS, Kentico, Prismic, Sanity.io, Strapi) into one venue to learn from each other and collaborate on the future of the web.

"The Jamstack has a thriving, diverse community of developers, and it's so exciting to see the future of the web being formed by them," said Cassidy Williams, director of developer experience, Netlify. "Our team has put a lot of effort into this year’s virtual event to bring out the humor, fun, and personalities that are so vibrant in our community and create an environment to learn and explore (and laugh!) together."

Hosted by Williams, Phil Hawksworth, and Jason Lengstorf of Netlify, Jamstack Conf will feature 3 tracks and 30+ talks and workshops, including keynote conversations, updates from framework authors and open source communities, new product “lightning” launches, technical sessions and demos, half-day workshops, and an ambitious project to build a dynamic Jamstack app live throughout the day. Speaker highlights include:

  • Matt Biilmann, CEO and co-founder of Netlify, will kick off the event featuring guests such as Rich Harris, creator of SvelteKit, an open source frontend compiler, and Evan You, creator of Vue.js.
  • Harrison Harnisch of Twilio will share “Inside the Twilio Console: A Large Scale Migration to Jamstack.”
  • Justin Metros and Nicole Bender of Universal Standard will present “Jamstack is for e-commerce at any size.” The size-inclusive apparel company migrated to the Jamstack on Shopify with Nuxt.js and will show how it lifted mobile conversion rate by 200 percent and improved team velocity.
