Jamstacked Issue 7

Mythbusting Jamstack

With so much going on in the world right now, it can be difficult to focus on technology. And, let's be clear, the issues being addressed by worldwide protesters in support of the Black Lives Matter movement are far more important than our specific technology interests. They are issues that are literally costing innocent people their lives. One means I chose to show my support was to give a donation in support of 70+ community bail funds, mutual aid funds, and racial justice organizers. Regardless of how you choose to show your support, just don't do nothing.
