Jamstack Denver - September 2nd, 6pm MDT

I’m going to give a talk about Redwood at Jamstack Denver next Wednesday, September 2. It’s a relatively small meetup but they’ve had great presentations on 11ty, Next, Gatsby, Sapper, TinaCMS, and a bunch of other cool projects so I think this is right in Redwood’s wheelhouse.

I plan on giving a general overview of the framework and it’s main concepts for the first 15-20 minutes and then building out the Redwood blog in about 10-15 minutes. Depending on how fast I get through the material I may also build the contact form. Then hopefully we’ll get some Q&A about the project.

It will be streaming on Twitch and then the video will be uploaded on Youtube.

Awesome! Let us know how it goes!

Nothing blew up!!! I think the talk went really well, I hit all the points I wanted to hit and the live coding went off without a hitch. I got a few good questions at the end and all the meetup organizers seemed to find the talk really interested. There will be a video link to the talk on their youtube sometime in the next week.


I caught the last 2/3 of your talk, really well done!

Way to go! And thanks for the update. :rocket:

Awesome, thanks for tuning in, it means a lot. I’ve been very inspired by how you communicate about the framework and how you need to really precisely articulate certain aspects of it, so I did my best to channel that.

@ajcwebdev when the recording is live, could you update the OP with the link and then let me know? I’d like to distribute this on Twitter when it’s ready.

Yup, for sure. It’s currently on their Twitch but I’ll let you know when the YouTube link is up as well
