Managing Diabetes with Jamstack
Jamstack is often considered a great solution for blogs and portfolios. But the fact is, we can do so much more. We can actually use Jamstack to develop feature rich apps! In this talk I will discuss how I created an open source Jamstack application that's designed to help diabetics manage blood sugars. We'll look at some of the services I used and how Serverless functions helped me deliver powerful functionality without a single web server in sight! This talk is based on an article I posted on dev.to earlier this year - https://dev.to/jamieendeavour/managing-diabetes-with-jamstack-the-idea-2gi3. The post is about an idea I had to develop a web application that diabetics can deploy easily and use to assist with their treatment. My talk will show the audience that Jamstack is more than a way of developing “static websites”. I want the audience to see what they can achieve with a combination of services and tooling from the Jamstack ecosystem. I hope that my talk inspires the audience to go away and use some of these services/tools for their own ideas.

Selling tickets without servers. Or frameworks. Or cookies.
When your ticketing platform and payment provider can't keep up with the demand for your event, you have a problem. A nice problem to have, but a problem nonetheless. JAMstack/serverless to the rescue! This talk showcases the custom serverless ticketshop I created for an event that sold out in seconds. By connecting serverless staples like Amazon API Gateway, Lambda functions, Cloudflare and Netlify (and a few you may not have heard of, yet) a ticketshop was built to handle thousands of requests per second, selling hundreds of tickets per minute but dealing with zero servers. And zero frameworks. And even zero cookies.

With this talk I would like to demonstrate that even "complex", multi-step e-commerce workflows, like for an event ticketshop, can be built using readily available platforms and services.

The Business Side of The Jamstack
Jamstack is gaining its space within the web development community. In general, web developers understand its benefits and more and more companies are experimenting with it. The idea of this lightning talk is to share our experience in using Jamstack to provide better businesses results to our partners and to have a positive impact in our community.
