BEaM Stack

November 28, 2019

The BEaM stack: Browser, Email and Messages. I recently helped somebody think through a mobile solution to a problem. The one thing that came up again and again is that people are doing more on mobile devices but nobody wants to download an app anymore. Our solution: use the browser, email and messaging…all of which are available on all smart phones since 2000-something.

A couple things I took away from prototyping the app:

  • Text messages are really complicated. Avoid using emojis.
  • Twilio is awesome!
  • Keeping your html / css small really helps load times.
  • Forget React…write javascript in between script tags like its 2006.
