YOUTUBE rJ_WvfF3FN8 Tara Vancil, Web Without Servers, JSConf EU 2018
_Nodding as I imagine William Gibson:_ "The future is already here, it’s just unevenly distributed." She didn't just paint that vision. About 12 minutes into her talk, Tara demoed a web without servers.
If you watch closely, ten minutes later she also shows a web application without a database. "It's files all the way down."
For wiki community, there is also noteworthy familiarity in the "database". She shows a folder full of json files where apparently each Fritter message is a single file. The client that renders those files is just another collection of files which she can copy into her own dat and edit.
The pain of build pipelines is not a new problem. blog
