It’s all about quality and building fancy websites.

About me

Tim has worked at different agencies in Amsterdam and Paris over the past twelve years. He has been lucky enough to have had global clients like: Nike, Heineken, Google, Tommy Hil-figer, EA games, Chanel and Hermès. Next to being web development director he also has a transversal front-end lead role for the biggest global client program at Valtech. The job in-volves  programming  with  nice  technologies  but  also  animating  an  international  group  of  amazing front-end developers to a future of  innovation for both Valtech and its clients. It’s all about quality and building fancy websites. A demanding job also needs balancing. Tim plays guitar and loves family time with his wife and a little corgi called Nugget.

JAMstack is the future. I think. Maybe.

About this event

JAMstack is everywhere lately. It’s supposed to be the messiah that saves us from monolithic application architectures that have difficulties with scaling, performance and security.To prepare this talk I spend my evenings building an app to see if JAMstack is indeed the way to go. It’s called “Strava Visualize” and it’s based on JAMstack. I chose to use the fanciest stuff to build it: a PWA with Vue.js, Azure functions, Azure CDN, Gitlab-CI and the Strava API.

In this talk I explain JAMstack and the basics of cloud architecture. JAMstack is a great approach to create scalable, fast and secure web applications. It has some drawbacks though.

Check this talk out to see if it lives up to the hype.
