What is JAMstack?
What is JAMstack and why should I care?
Thanks to recent development of serverless platforms such as firebase, Google Cloud Functions, Amazon Lambda Functions which enables API integrations from front-end itself.
The best thing about JAMstack in my opinion is the that you don't have to pay any initial amount to get started.
Why I like JAMstack so much?
My first interaction to JAMstack I would say was when I was experimenting with Dialogflow. I developed a small chatbot, used Google Cloud Functions as backend, deployed it firebase hosting (all without paying any money).
JAMstack gives power to front-end developers to experiment and expand.

As we are using third party APIs developed by domain experts, security is never a concern
Ease of development
Using third party services to handle most of the initial setup, it gives us the freedom to focus on more important aspects.
