Serving Frontend to the internet
Static Site Generators (11ty)
Headless CMS (Contentful CMS)
Tailwindcss with 11ty
Tailwindcss with Gatsby
Gatsby and Graphql
The JAMstack allows people to create websites that are simpler, faster, and more secure than other methods of creating websites. Sites created with the JAMstack are delivered by pre-rendering files that are served directly from a CDN, removing the requirement to manage or run web servers.
Why wait for pages to build on the fly when you can generate them at deploy time? When it comes to minimising the time to first byte, nothing beats pre-built files served over a CDN.
With server-side processes abstracted into microservice APIs, surface areas for attacks are reduced. You can also leverage the domain expertise of specialist third-party services.
Cheaper, Easier Scaling
When your deployment amounts to a stack of files that can be served anywhere, scaling is a matter of serving those files in more places. CDNs are perfect for this, and often include scaling in all of their plans.
Better Developer Experience
Loose coupling and separation of controls allow for more targeted development and debugging, and the expanding selection of CMS options for site generators remove the need to maintain a separate stack for content and marketing.
Project 1: You’re gonna learn how to build a website from start to finish. You are going to learn how to setup an 11ty project, pull the data from Contentful CMS, style your pages using Tailwindcss and deploy it to Netlify.
Project 2: You will learn how to build a blazing fast and secure shop in no time. Using Gatsby you will be able to pull all your product at build time and pre render them so they load almost instantly.
