This past week was Thanksgiving in the U.S., thus the delayed delivery of this issue (note that the next issue will be Dec 8th). In that vein, I want to share a couple things that I am thankful for.

First, much of my Jamstack development going back at least nine years has relied on the work and contributions of open source developers. Thank you for providing me the tools that continue to make me successful in my development.

Second, I am thankful for an amazing Jamstack community that creates so much amazing content that makes this newsletter possible.

SPAs, MPAs, The History of Twitter Tech, and A Failed Project
A good look back at the history of the SPA (i.e. single page application) and how Twitter played a big role in developing the concept. Looking forward, it also touches on the rise (again) of MPA (multi-page applications).
