Alexandra Spalato

Hello, I am Alexandra, welcome to my site!

I am a web developer and entrepreneur living in the beautiful Spanish island of Mallorca, with Darko.S, my life partner for 18 years now, a talented painter and musician…and my best advisor and supporter ♥️.

Born and raised in France, I graduated pharmacy and business, dreamed of a career in acting but instead cast others, had stints in PR and investment until one day I decided to leave it all and dive into web development.

That was the best decision of my life!

Like many others, I started building websites using WordPress. It took me hard work and dedication to build up my knowledge and expertise but my passion for web development kept growing too. Eventually, I joined the Codeable team of WordPress experts and was given the opportunity to help many clients around the world, building their online presence through high-quality custom theme development.

I have always been concerned by the performances my websites would deliver which is why I took a keen interest in the solutions offered by using JAMstack as a way of building sites and apps.

I have become, since then, an advocate of this modern web architecture which I believe is the future of web development. I am also involved in building bridges between the WP ecosystem and the JAMstack and have been a speaker at events such as Gatsby days London, javascriptForWp conf, and have co-funded GatsbyWPThemes.

Why Jamstack ?

Speed

When setting up a Jamstack flow ,your website will generate pages at deploy time because the files are pre-built and served over a CDN instead of being delivered from servers.Not having to run a multitude of queries from the database is what makes JAMstack so fast .

SEO

Page load time has become central for on-site engagement and more overall ,better perfomances results in better ranking and more organic search,thus more chances to generate income.

Security

The architecture of a Jamstack setup decouples front-end and CMS ,because all server-side actions are being run by API’s .
The user is served static HTML pages ensuring they are secure and thus
tremendously diminishing potentiality for attacks.

Scalability

Static content is served in a CDN ,making it
automatically easier to scale.
