re: Love that you put the cost as the first benefit of JAMstack. I'm sure it applies for smaller apps/side projects, too. Did you find infrastructure ...
 

Considering freeCodeCamp.org initially had no budget, yes - hosting a MongoDB cluster and a bunch of web servers was prohibitive. I spent $100,000 of my savings the first few years keeping freeCodeCamp.org going. We are break even now. We probably could have gotten there a bit earlier if we'd embraced the JAMstack sooner.

 

thank you for how much personal investment you've put into helping people all around the world
