The U.S. Government frequently overpays for basic web technology, simply because there's no one in the room to say 'no'. A vendor wanted to charge the Small Business Administration $103,000 to build an HTML form and stand up a simple API to receive data. Come learn how Ryan used vanilla NodeJS, basic HTML, and AWS Lambda to build a maintenance free process that saved his agency $100,000. Through this lightning talk, Ryan will consider the maintenance costs of JavaScript frameworks, right sizing the solution for your problem, and how large organizations might avoid over engineering.
