When we rolled out our coming soon page, we thought it would be an excellent time to implement a new tech stack. While we’re big fans of DigitalOcean and their one-click server setup, but, for this project, we decided to scrap the server, and it’s configurations, and go for the JAMStack serverless architecture. Say hello to the new hotness, Netlify. With its easy deployment using GitHub or Bitbucket, it’s a developer’s dream come true, plus, with AWS’s serverless Lambda functions you can run server-side code without having to run a dedicated server.

And following modern web development best practices, we approached it with a component-based architecture using, Gatsby(a Blazing fast, site generator for React); it’s CLI tool makes coding a breeze. And for DNS management and modern traffic management technology we looked to NS1. We’ll put the code up on Github shortly. Cheers
