Workshop, 6×2.5h + Q&A • Tue & Wed, Nov 9–24 2021

With its flexibility and intuitive APIs, Next.js has taken the React ecosystem by assault. But as it is such a powerful tool, it can become confusing when developing non-trivial web applications.

You can get up and running with the generic setup — via various guides available — but often that is not enough. In this workshop, we will walk through the creation of a complex application with all bells and whistles. You know, the type of high-end production-grade web app which can make every stakeholder (and user - most importantly) happy and satisfied.

In the workshop we will cover everything from tooling to performance, and from UI straight up to security, so you are ready to take up your own after.


Are you ready for lots of hands-on exercises and a pace fast enough to keep you on your toes, but smooth enough to cover the concepts behind each used pattern? This workshop will take you beyond the general proof-of-concept app, to something that scales and is abstract enough to fit any use case — whilst meeting all best practices.
