GatsbyConf Q&A: Joel Varty on the State of the Jamstack
Joel Varty, president of Agility CMS, will be speaking at GatsbyConf on March 2nd! His presentation "Architecting Fullstack Solutions in a Jamstack World" will show why Jamstack architecture is more than just a frontend and discuss the kinds of solutions that Jamstack is great at solving. Joel will also demonstrate how you can add existing APIs onto your Jamstack solution -- and how you can build new APIs to solve unique customer problems. We caught up with Joel for a quick pre-conf chat about Gatsby and the Jamstack.

Presenting the 2020 Silly Site Challenge Winners!
They came, they coded, they were seriously silly. Over 900 people registered for the first-ever Gatsby Silly Site Challenge, and 134 entries ultimately crossed the finish line.
