Personalizing your web apps with Fauna & Netlify


Consumers expect to land on web pages and only be served content that is relevant to them. Personalization can be based on several attributes - from giving user-customized greeting messages (based on the user's geolocation, holidays, etc.) to showing them promotions and coupons (based on their previous purchases).

With Netlify's Next.js Advanced Middleware and Fauna's database, you can now achieve dynamic personalization without running client-side JavaScript -- resulting in the user experience consumers want without the performance hit.

In this live webinar, you will learn:

  • 1. How you can make HTTP requests on a static HTML page directly from Netlify edge functions
  • 2. How you can query Fauna from your Netlify edge functions to get personalized information about the user
  • 3. How combining the two above keeps latency low and performance humming

Building composable serverless architectures with Fauna, Netlify, and Big Nerd Ranch

It’s become a truism that the speed and performance of web applications, e-commerce sites, and websites are critical variables in converting visitors to paying customers. Modern consumers expect these assets to serve data quickly, accurately, and contextually. API-first platforms like Fauna and Netlify, paired with other composable technologies designed for distributed workloads, drastically simplify the process of deploying applications that serve dynamic content at the edge with low latency, without complicated stitching or multi-team engineering efforts.

Serverless solutions are empowering small teams to do more and focus on their business. One of the principles of software development is to keep things DRY, or “Don’t Repeat Yourself.” Software as a Service (SaaS) is an iteration on this principle with additional benefits. By migrating to managed serverless infrastructures, engineering teams can reduce operational management, allowing more time for product development. Serverless infrastructures provide scaling on-demand to grow with business needs and the distributed systems lower network latency for users
