In an exclusive interview with The Ember Times, Chris shares with us, how popular the JAM stack is and why it is so useful for building modern websites in 2020:
[…] My belief is that most Ember developers are already using JAM Stack concepts. It’s not a binary thing, it’s not “you use the JAM stack” or “you don’t”. Instead you can make your apps more JAM and the question of when you want to do it is answered by when you need it. If you need good SEO, or if you need faster start times, you might want to look at some of the JAM technologies.
What will our experience building JAM stack websites with Octane be like? Chris shares from his experience as a JAM stack developer and as a workshop mentor:
The thing that most people like when using JAM Stack with Ember, is the fact that you can get so much by just installing 1 or 2 addons. If you had to teach somebody everything from the ground all the way up to getting it deployed, it would take much longer and it would be much more difficult. But leveraging the power of Ember, leveraging the power of Ember addons makes people experience quick wins and gets a lot done very quickly.
Besides learning about the theory and practice of JAM stack, what makes EmberConf your go-to conference in 2020? Chris shares his perspective on what makes the event so worth being part of:
The thing I most like about EmberConf is meeting people, chatting in the hallway and the wild plans for the future of Ember that always seem to happen late night over dinner or between two talks.
