Open Tech Night - Netlify and Novicell

The future of frontend stacks, DxC and how to avoid pain

At Novicell we are opening our otherwise internal monthly tech night. We invite you to join us and Netlify for an exciting session on the future of frontend stacks and infrastructure. 

Innovation in the frontend space is moving at an alarming pace and it can be difficult to keep up. Chris Bach, Netlify cofounder & MACH Alliance board member and Novicells CTO Adam Peter Nielsen will open the discussion on development and infra of the future. Get a glimpse of what's cooking and join the discussion on where frontend will take us in the coming years. 

The talk is followed by real world examples from Netlify Guru Henry Smith on how to make life of a developers easier by providing best in class developer experience and removing countless hours of friction in frontend development. 

In the talk

  • Why this is important for both frontend, backend, and full stack devs. 
  • How Netlify makes JAM stack development easy 
  • Live demo: Develop Fast, Ship Fast, View Fast 
  • Balancing components and frameworks at Build time, Run time, every time… 
  • Live demo: WTF – (What the function) – The work horses of the modern web 
  • Life on the Edge – Caching, Edge functions, Graph and maybe even donuts? 
  • Methods of attack for transitioning from legacy to JAMstack and composable 
  • ... and more – in your face – tricks 

Discussion kickoff topics:

  • Transition and Migration
  • JAM stack war stories
  • Maintenance over time. 

The event takes place in Copenhagen, but will be live-streamed to the Novicell’s offices in Aarhus and in London, where Novicell will host, facilitate the discussion and of course provide plenty of beers and food.

Target audience: Techies, Developers, Jamstack fanboys, headless aficionados, full stack ninjas, MACH lovers, geeks...
