Hi there 👋
I'm Nico van Zyl — an Interface Architect & JAMstack Developer.
Your users expect increasingly faster websites that are secure and load near instantaneously. I combine thoroughly planned out design processes with modern technology to deliver exceptional JAMstack websites.
Why a JAMstack website?
With traditional sites your users have to wait for pages to render with each page request. Why not generate them at deploy time? When it comes to minimizing the time to first byte, nothing beats pre-built sites and pages served over a CDN.
With server-side processes abstracted into microservice APIs, surface areas for attacks are reduced. You can also leverage the domain expertise of specialist third-party services.
Cheaper and Easier to run
When your deployment amounts to a stack of files that can be served anywhere, scaling is a matter of serving those files in more places. CDNs are perfect for this, and often include scaling in all of their plans.
Improved SEO out of the box
Static sites are rewarded by Search Engines, going static also means your site loads faster which improves SEO furthermore.
Versatile content management
Ever feel like you've been locked into a platform/CMS and can't let your creativity shine? By decoupling the site user interface from the content management system you are free to use any content with any structure you can dream of.
Fast and secure sites and apps delivered by pre-rendering files and serving them directly from a CDN, removing the requirement to manage or run web servers.
