As much as we like decoupled architectures, the process of development is still remarkably coupled to deployment. This talk is a deep dive into the recently launched Netlify Dev, which is a new tool to improve the local development experience, yet solving "works on my machine" syndrome by simulating Edge routing logic via WASM. We will cover how Netlify Dev achieves a zero config experience with your static site generator of choice, while remaining technology agnostic. We will explore how we can dramatically improve the setup and provisioning of serverless functions and third party APIs for event driven architectures. And finally conclude with some ideas on possible directions for the future, and an invitation to discuss, collaborate, and build the future together.
