Jamstack gives you wings (Be the frontend engineer you always wanted to be)

Jamstack gives you wings (Be the frontend engineer you always wanted to be)

All serverless platforms are extensions of the power of front-end developers, and with better serverless the blurring of middleware boundaries around ownership issues that exist between back-end and front-end teams is somewhat clearer. This answers the old question of "who owns the proxy server?" That's what a serverless platform owns!

But what happens when the serverless code leaves the computer? Where are you going? Do you want to make new friends wherever you go? As the size of the company grows, will we grow together with it? Let's talk about this. In this program, we'll be talking about pushing the boundaries of serverless.
