Migrating from WordPress to Jamstack.


  • What is Jamstack and what does it mean to you?

  • You always hear WordPress holds 30% of the internet. Is this still the case and are we starting to see them lose ground? Why do you think that is?

  • What are the benefits of moving off of WordPress and into a Jamstack ecosystem?

  • Is Jamstack lacking any capabilities that WordPress provides?

  • We are currently building out a backend similar to WordPress with the Jamstack in NextJS. What would you say are the key features WordPress provides its users?

  • If you were to use any CMS today to create a Next.js application and host it on Netlify what would it be? And why?

  • Can Netlify host a Next.js application with regeneration capabilities yet?
