A trend which has emerged and is expected to grow throughout 2014 is the abandonment of over complicated CMSs and the uptake of stripped back flat file solutions. But what exactly is flat file architecture?
Think that WordPress is the be-all and end-all of web development? There is a cost (in terms of latency) of connecting to the database to retrieve data where flat files may be more efficient. Personally for me, I dont like db fetches and would prefer in memory (or cloud) caching everytime.
