Jamstack research: Typescript and serverless are the winners


I really don’t think the premise that WordPress market share is going to be eaten by JAM stack in any meaningful way is backed up by any of this.

WordPress is chosen by companies, not developers, because it is an extremely safe chose of CMS. JAM is not a CMS and none of the JAM CMS are anywhere near as safe of a business choice as WP. It’s also no surprise that a survey of JavaScript developers doesn’t favor a PHP software.

Re: Why blockchain?

My best guess is that they’re hoping that it will help with international adoption. In theory this can act as a single global platform that any country can interface with without having to trust any other participants.

I’m not convinced that will work or that it’s an optimal solution, but I do think it’s a novel use of blockchain tech rather than a buzzword inclusion.
