The Jamstack At Scale: Building Sites for Audiences of Millions

Results from the most recent Jamstack Community Survey show that the Jamstack is now being used to build some of the biggest websites in the world, with audiences measured in the millions.

Looking closely at this data, we decided to ask some questions, including:

  • What does the technical stack look like for massive Jamstack sites?
  • Are their sites mostly dynamic or static?
  • How do developers who work on sites with very large audiences differ from other developers?
  • Are these trends changing year over year?

The answers were: all of the above, and more.
