As a relative novice to the JAMstack platform, I’ve tried to keep some tabs on what’s going on since the whole WordPress vs JAMstack debate went into high gear. I did get to interview Matt Biilmann during this period and learned more about the economy and platform. For ongoing JAMStack updates JAMstacked is my go to newsletter (n.b.

If you have a complicated setup, you might start small and see how you feel about static site generation before putting together a plan to solve something at an enterprise scale. You can also keep using WordPress as a best-in-class headless content management system and use an SSG to serve WordPress content.”
