Scale Complex JavaScript Applications with Next.JS w/Ben Johnson

Register in advance for this meetup via Zoom:–uqzMvG903pxWVo6Dao_3V0WO7ZnHZ

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.


We will dive into what Next.js is and how it helps us build and scale complex JavaScript applications. We’ll see what Next.js gives us out of the box, and learn some common rendering approaches used in modern JS apps (server-side rendering, static site generation, and client-side fetching).

By the end of this talk you should know enough about Next.js to know how to spin up a new app and start playing around with it on your own.

To get the most out of this talk, some knowledge of React will be helpful—but it’s not required!
