In just seven sleeps, we’ll have the honor of hosting everyone in the Gatsbyverse for a second GatsbyCamp — Time flies! 🚀
In fact, it feels like just yesterday we were announcing Functions GA and now look: here we are again gathering to share more of the exciting things the Gatsby community is bringing to life with your Gatsby sites. We’ll also be revealing some of the things the Gatsby team has been hard at work on since the last GatsbyCamp in June.
We’ll keep today’s post short and sweet, serving as a line-up preview of people and topics you’ll be hearing about next Thursday, September 16th. The event will kick off at 8:30am PT sharp so mark your calendars and register now to join us!

Scale Your Website With Flexible Content Models
Nikan Shahidi, Founder & CEO, Webstacks
We’re all about diving in but Nikan has a point here: Before you do, set your Gatsby sites up for success with a forward-thinking content structure that promotes consistent design, clean data, and a wonderful user experience. We’ll see you at this talk and, because every site is unique, we’re curious to hear the questions you’ll have for him post-talk.
Add Flexibility to Your Site with Gatsby Functions
Benedicte Raae, Queen, Lilly Labs
Watch Queen Raae code through a complete form -> function -> email example. She’ll also highlight examples taken from her recent Gatsby Summer Functions series to show just how quickly and seamlessly others were able to set up and scale (not to mention save some money!) by building their own Functions on Gatsby Cloud.

Chris Marts, I.T. Director / Tech Lead, Aloysius Butler & Clark
Hear some of the best practices for leveraging Gatsby to deliver on clients’ high expectations for interactivity and web performance scores from Chris, a tech lead for a team who was quick to embrace Gatsby, launching six Gatsby sites in less than six months. All the while providing a much better inner loop developer experience with 50% shorter development timelines.
But That’s Not All…🔥
End the day with us in a cozy fireside chat, hosted by Gatsby Product Marketing Manager and GatsbyCamp MC Kirsten Lambertsen, with several members of the Gatsby Team, including Kyle Mathews so make sure you’re jotting down your questions as you listen to the talks if you want to ask questions.
