Is this course right for you ?
This course is meant for everyone wanting to level up their application delivery with best practices and unparalleled Developer Experience.
What is the JAMstack and Serverless?
A JAMstack application is either statically generated (Static Site Generation – SSG), rendered on the server (Server-side Rendering – SSR), or uses a more advanced combined technique: Server-side Pre-Rendered (SSPR). In this course, we will use SSPR to use the best of SSG and combine with SSR.
The dream-stack for the JAMstack:
like an iceberg, there is a big chunk of a NextJS app which runs on the server. For that, we need NodeJS. On top of that, we will create our own Serverless Functions, which will run entirely on the server with NodeJS.
when properly set, strong-typing brings to the table a huge advantage when using external resources (such as libraries and frameworks). It makes the code more discoverable since text editors (like VSCode) can provide with insights when we‘re writing the code, and safeguard us from runtime errors. It makes the code self-documented and allow us, in the future, to touch many moving parts without fear causing unexpected side-effects.
we will build an app that takes out the most of the Component-Based Architecture. With this, we can achieve a scalable, maintainable, and easy-to-read architecture for our User Interface. It will be easy to add more functionality in the future and replace/optimize existing features.
for the best developer experience, we get everything a high-quality production web application should have, most already baked-in and ready to be used, just a few configuration strokes away.
a performant and flexible CSS-in-JS library. It will handle our styles with great Developer Experience and compiling for the best production performance possible.
This is not a course that will be forgotten after published, it is actually only the beginning. In enrolling now you guarantee access to the upcoming lessons modules. For example:
