APIs for Dynamic Data
APIs for dynamic data and media to turn static JAMstack apps in a persistent, interactive and dynamic user experience.

SSG is a vital component of Jamstack which grants the app superpowers (low-latency loads, multi-region) as static makes your app eligible to be deployed on CDNs. But how to deal with real-time data, media formats and how to support user interactions that need to be persisted? In this topic room, we will have a discussion on the solutions that exist to easily transform a Jamstack into an interactive and dynamic user experience with optimized advanced media. We'll look into FaunaDB and Cloudinary and explain how they are different from a CDN and how they can help to spice up your Jamstack with @databrecht and @tpiros

Bringing State to the Serverless Edge
Most people associate serverless with Function-as-a-Service (Faas) but functions by nature are stateless — one big outstanding question remains: how to build stateful serverless applications, especially at the edge? 
In this talk we will talk about the evolution of FaaS and how it has moved to the edge and what the different options are of managing state at the edge from caching, to databases, to key value stores, to durable objects. After this talk you should be able to understand which variables to take into account, given the CAP theorem (consistency, availability, partition tolerance — pick two!), when architecting your serverless applications and APIs.

Components + Jamstack: Is the lego dream finally a reality?
Building Websites and Apps like you’d build something with legos has long been a dream for developers. Over the past 20 years, many platforms and frameworks have tried and failed to deliver technologies that would provide developers with flexible building blocks that would be empowering, yet not limiting. 

How can you make components perform well enough to deliver on their promise? Server or client-side? How do you connect components to a database? How do you deal with state? The questions and obstacles are almost never-ending. Yet the last couple of years have brought answers to a lot of these questions. The rise of Jamstack, server-side rendering, on-demand static generation of components, image pipelines, and other solutions have addressed so many of the issues that had hindered progress up until now. 

It finally seems that we’re getting there. You’re now just a component away from integrating good search tools, pretty forms, custom content, or super optimized images on your website.This topic table will be our opportunity to look back at that progress, preview what's to come, and discuss how Prismic and other players within the industry have helped to push a component-based approach further forward.

Customizing the network edge for better Jamstack sites and apps
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.

Selling the Jamstack: Agency Edition
For software development agencies, the technical prowess of your clients can vary widely. Often a client representing an organization’s marketing team understands the needs of the organization and the problems with their current website but talking about “new-fangled technology” can go right over their head. When they’re used to living in a Wordpress or Squarespace world, how can agencies educate them on the value of the Jamstack? In this panel, we’ll dig into explaining the Jamstack philosophy to clients and share examples of successful approaches and common pitfalls to selling the Jamstack. We’ll hear from people who represent both agencies and clients alike.
