We're very excited to welcome Ken Rimple to share the latest developments in Next.js 13.x!

Ken Rimple is an engineer and trainer/mentor at Chariot Solutions. Having developed a number of AWS cloud-based solutions with React and Angular and containers running Spring, Python and Node.js, he writes and teaches courses in React, Angular, and other technologies. He runs the Chariot TechCast podcast, is a frequent speaker and committee member on the Philly Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise conference, and blogs about various topics on Chariot's Tech Blog.


Next.js's latest move: templates and server React components in Next.js 13.x

Having innovated and built one of the best-known server-rendered and server-side-generated React frameworks, Next.js, Vercel has been focused on staying out front in terms of performance and adopting new technologies. Along with embracing high performance deployments using Vercel's edge network (along with other options), the team has been improving both the layout technology as well as supporting React's recent server-side component specification.

In this talk, Ken Rimple will outline the benefits to moving to the new template-driven app folder structure, as well as how to use it to deliver new server-side components.


This meetup is at Indy Hall’s Clubhouse which includes lots of space to spread out, lots of high quality & natural airflow, and a beautiful view of the city.
