Drupal is not the best solution for every website.

There. I said it.

Sometimes a better solution is one that is faster to deploy, easier to maintain and has fewer security risks. Sometimes that solution is a static site.

Have I just committed a sacrilege? Am I suggesting we all ditch our careers as Drupal developers?

Fear not. Drupal is often still your best option. But it's true, static site generators can sometimes do the job better and faster.

This session will explore several ways to use static site generators to create and deploy sites quickly without the heavy lifting of databases, without the headaches of security patches, and without long, steep learning curves.

We'll talkl about several types of static generators, but we'll also make sure to discuss when and why Drupal is still a better choice.
