Building static sites with headless WordPress

A talk by Seagyn Davis
Software Engineer, Leadhome

The "modern web" is moving rapidly and advancing in many ways. Ironically, there is a movement back to our roots where sites are static HTML pages that are fast, secure and SEO-friendly. So how does WordPress fit into that picture? Well, what's exciting about the WordPress REST API is that the possibility of having a modern frontend with the WordPress backend is a reality.

In this talk, we will look at GastbyJS and how it works with WordPress. What all the pros are that we get excited about and most importantly, the cons which often catch us out.
