Web Almanac on the Jamstack in 2022 and State of GraphQL


A podcast for frontend and full-stack developersAll things site speed, #webperf, #Jamstack, and the future of the Web. Our newsletter serves as a weekly roundup of events, news, and resources.

Last Week on JavaScript Jam

  • Catch last week's recording here.
  • We went live five hours into the first day of ViteConf, which had a truly impressive line up of who’s who in JavaScript tooling and frameworks. We discussed the talks so far and what we’re looking forward to for the rest of the conference.
  • Speaking of frameworks, Salma Alam-Naylor created What the Framework, a simple site with the lofty goal of picking the framework for your next project. Despite it seeming like every week there’s a hot new JavaScript framework, she argues the ecosystem has less options than you might think. Let’s review the site’s recommendations and if our audience agrees with them.

What To Expect This Week

  • Set a reminder to join Javascript Jam Live Wednesday at 3pm 10/19.
  • Experienced developer advocate Tessa Mero of AppWrite will join us to give us an update on this year’s Hacktoberfest and answer your questions about developer relations.
  • The 2022 Web Almanac released its chapter on Jamstack. Interestingly adopted a looser definition of Jamstack, partially to overcome measurement limitations and perhaps also in a nod to the evolving definition of this architecture. We’ll discuss the results and the pros and cons of the new definition of “Jamstack-y”. What are folks on Twitter already saying about this?
  • And yet another ecosystem survey, the State of GraphQL also was recently published. The survey shows an ecosystem is growing and maturing but GraphQL also appears to be hitting a trough of disillusionment. Come join the Twitter space to let us know your experiences with GraphQL and if it’s lived u p to your expectations.
