Why we chose JamStack powering our site

Don’t get me wrong, Wordpress has been the tool used since the beginning of time for me. However, over the years it’s become bloated and heavy for page speed and loading.

It’s wide range of selection for plugins has also become a constant security vulnerability as plugins which may have security holes are adopted without strict checks.

I’ve decided to migrate to JamStack(https://jamstack.org/), which is “Modern web development architecture based on client-side JavaScript, reusable APIs, and prebuilt Markup”.

Our Stack

Currently our stack for our marketing website looks like below:

  • Netlify for hosting and our CDN
  • Hugo for static-less website.
  • Intercom for customer support
  • Intercom for FAQ
  • Google Analytics for web analytics

There’s some changes to come as we work towards improving our website to communicate our product, vision, and our value much more effectively.

Can’t wait to show you what’s next.
