When you build a site on the Jamstack, the general recommendation is to pre-build assets ahead of time and serve them statically from a CDN. Until recently, controlling how content was served meant using pre-defined redirect rules and role based access control. This functionality relied heavily on specific platform implementations and didn’t allow for much custom configuration at the edge.

The edge has come a long way since Jamstack was first introduced and CDNs are far more robust—now, you can run custom logic at the edge to support advanced and dynamic functionality like personalization and API aggregation. No roundtrips to an origin, no spinning up servers, and no cold-starts.  More importantly, this level of customization and control is seamlessly integrated within an existing Git-based workflow, thereby making it easy to work with.

This session will explore recent advances in the network edge, like Netlify Edge Handlers, and consider how these innovations will improve the way you Jamstack. You’ll see a live demo of these new innovations in action and we’ll discuss which use cases benefit the most, like localized content, custom authentication, and content personalization.
