Beyond the Shopify Storefront: Headless Commerce Considerations
With the arrival of Shopify’s GraphQL API, headless commerce opened up a new realm of possibilities for Shopify merchants. It’s the best of both worlds: you can take advantage of the stability, security, and well-built architecture of Shopify’s admin while modernizing the storefront build experience. In this talk you’ll learn about the architectural and technical decisions developers face when building a headless commerce storefront on top of Shopify: from tooling and languages to common Shopify-specific “gotchas” that may present some difficulties.

Jamstack Solutions for Performant A/B Testing and Personalization
Client side A/B Testing and Personalization can significantly delay critical loading metrics—especially on mobile devices. Server side solutions, running at the origin, limit caching and remove many of the security and scalability benefits of the Jamstack. The recent arrival of edge compute provides a third option: modifying cached content directly at the CDN’s edge. This new architecture promises to reconcile tradeoffs between dynamic content and fast load times, opening a new paradigm for optimizing e-commerce sites.

Building a Stripe powered Shopping Cart
We don't think much of shopping carts we use in the grocery store. We put things in, we take things out. An e-commerce shopping cart, however, is a completely different ball game. That simple experience we're so familiar with under the hood is a mini CRUD app and then some. In this talk, Nick details how to prepare your team for rolling your own shopping cart.
