Event description

Description

Build and deploy a full-featured personal website with NextJS v9! We will tour the full capabilities of NextJS with a hands-on demo including landing, about, contact form, and blog pages.

The morning will focus on the fundamental workings of NextJS sites: setup, handling assets, styling, layout, and routing. We'll compare with other popular frameworks, see how much is provided out of the box, and add our favorite packages and tools.

The afternoon explores data and deployment options. Adding a useful microservice shows how NextJS handles API routes for us. We will also implement GraphQL (Apollo Client hooks, GraphCMS) as a data layer to power a blog section. Finally, handle deployment quickly and easily with Zeit Now.
