The Headless Marketing Show
Exploring Jamstack: The future of the web?
Here on The Headless Marketing Show we talk a lot about headless CMS and what marketing can benefit from using a headless CMS - these are techy topics and they require a different approach to how you build a website. Enter the Jamstack. On today's show, we'll listen to Brian Rinaldi discuss and explain what the Jamstack is.
Simply put the Jamstack is a new way of building and deploying websites and web experiences. It is all about decoupling the website away from monolithic systems and decentralizing the stack with "best in breed microservices" and then re-coupling and pre-building the entire front end.

Why is the Jamstack important?
For marketers, this all matters because the Jamstack makes it much easier to break out of templates and older slower development cycles. It gives WAY more creative control back to the marketing team to be able to build experiences that customers are looking for. In the show, we discuss how older systems come with a lot of constraints and choke-points, and complications that go away when using the Jamstack.
