A few words with Joe from Designers + Geeks...

Could you tell us about your project?
Netlify
Active Ingredients is a one-day conference on web front-end development, specifically JAMstack-related topics. We wanted to practice what we preach, and have been super impressed with the results. We started with the Victor Hugo boilerplate from Netlify, pulled all the content together, and had a world-class site up in less than a day. Content updates are incredibly easy & quick, as we have Netlify connected directly to the GitHub repo for the site. Best of all is that the site gets high marks from every performance tester we’ve tried.

Why did you choose Netlify?
Netlify
A few reasons: outstanding site performance, ease of use, and plug & play form handling. Plus free HTTPS doesn’t hurt. :)

What is your favorite part of Netlify?
Netlify
We want to spend our time focused on organizing a great event, not on tweaking obscure site parameters for small performance gains. Netlify makes it so simple to have a high-performance site that we can spend our time on the event with quick content updates to the site.

Any other comments for our readers?
Netlify
The JAMstack is a great approach to building websites for people who want to focus on content. Designers, agencies, event organizers, ecommerce companies, corporate marketers – all folks who can benefit by focusing on the front-end experience and letting a platform handle the backend stuff.
