Your update on all things Jamstack

This week featured Netlify's Jamstack Conf in San Francisco, which occurred both in-person and hybrid this year. Besides the talks, one of the highlights of each year is the community survey, which I cover below. If you missed the event, videos are being added to this playlist on YouTube.

It already includes the keynote by Matt Biilmann, which clearly aimed at differentiating Netlify's vision from Vercel, who recently hosted their conference, as well as a discussion with a panel of OSS framework creators and contributors.
