Hello, World!

Hello, world! In our first edition of the Eleventy Meetup, we're bringing you a talk from our illustrious leader, Zach Leatherman, about the forthcoming Eleventy Serverless. Plus, Mike Aparicio will share about templating languages in a talk focused on helping beginner 11ty devs!

Eleventy Serverless

Formerly known as Eleventy Cloud, Eleventy Serverless will allow Eleventy projects to:

  • Lazily render individual templates outside of your primary build using Distributed Persistent Rendering. This is super useful for large projects with a lot of templates.
  • Serve personalized per-user content via server-side rendering.

Templating: Eleventy's Superpower

One of the many cool features of Eleventy is its support of multiple template languages. But what the heck are template languages and how can you use them to make your static Eleventy sites feel like the dynamic, server-rendered sites of yore?
