Jamstack: Azure Serverless Function App With React

A new trend of creating applications is emerging called Jamstack. No, this isn’t slapping together your favorite flavor of jelly (grape is the best) with peanut butter and two pieces of bread. The intent is an architecture that is faster, more secure, and easier to scale. It focuses on pre-rending and decoupling. This way, the solutions created are more reliable and resilient than before.

Pre-rendering comes by the way of using a static website via a CDN for high availability and security. No more serving your React app via web server like we’ve become accustomed to. It reduces cost and complexity by eliminating the regular maintenance and configuration of traditional servers.

Also, the idea of APIs and the ability to move them to things like Serverless functions creates more cost savings, elimination of traditional servers, and use of features only when they are requested. For more information, check out the Serverless website.
