In 2018, Kent C. Dodds wrote: "The more your tests resemble the way your software is used, the more confidence they can give you." This phrase became the guiding principle for the entire Testing Library ecosystem.
A few years later, the React Testing Library became the de facto library for writing unit and integration tests in the React ecosystem.
Thanks to its user-centric perspective, our tests are closer to our user experience and far away from implementation details.
In this course, you will learn how to:
After this course, you should be able to write and debug any test using the React Testing Library!
Amazon AWS is one of the most popular cloud providers in the world, but it can also be daunting to learn thanks to the alphabet soup of service acronyms.
Once you've figured out which subset of services to use, you've got a lot of clicking around to do in order to get things configured.
With the AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK v2), you are able to configure AWS services from your terminal & editor.
Even better, you can do your configuration, frontend, and backend all with the same language.
In this course, Tomasz Łakomy will guide you through using TypeScript to complete the lifecycle of an application powered by AWS CDK v2. You'll see how to start a project, develop it locally, deploy it globally, and then tear it all down when you're done.
The services & development approach Tomasz demonstrates in this course are used by countless companies around the world.
Is yours next?
"Build a Full Stack Blog with Astro" is a hands-on course that cuts straight to the chase, offering developers a practical approach to building a fully functional blog website. Throughout this course, you'll get to grips with Astro, a modern web framework designed to help you create fast content websites with a modern development experience.
Here's what you'll be tackling:
astro-seo, ensuring your site ranks well and reaches the right audience without the guesswork.
By the end of this course, you won't just have a theoretical understanding — you'll have a live, deployable full-stack blog that reflects current best practices in web development. You’ll also gain valuable and easily-transferrable skills for working with databases and containerizing and deploying full-stack web apps. This course is about building something tangible that you can use as a springboard for more complex projects down the line. So, let's learn how to build great content websites!
Controlling the network is the key to fast prototyping, bullet-proof tests, and efficient debugging. In this course, you will learn how to use Mock Service Worker for API mocking—from the setup and your first request handler to describing more complex network scenarios, such as dynamic requests, HTTP streams, and schema-first GraphQL mocking.
There are two major categories that you'll encounter when you start to build Full Stack applications.
You have: 💽 Database Management 👥 Authentication
Both of these contain their unique set of challenges and layer on top of each other as you build out your application.
You want to be able to Create, Read, Update, and Delete data from your database and also make sure that only the right users are performing these actions that you specify.
That is why this course is set up around these two categories.
You'll learn everything you need to about managing data using a service called Appwrite within your React application. Using Appwrite, you'll be able to create a database, upload files, and manage users.
You'll start out by building out the database while purposefully ignoring authentication/authorization through out the application.
The second part of the course will have you layer on auth so that you can enable users to log in and scope specific actions to roles that you'll create.
This course is focused on the full stack nature of web development so we will start with almost all of our UI built out for us. You can explore the course repository to get familiar with what components are available.
As new features are added to Nextjs app router that do not fall within the scope of the main course, these lessons will be updated and more will be added
How to use this course:
This course is meant to be a supplemental course for the Next Migrate Course.
The lessons match up as follows:
This course will be updated as all the app router features and apis become stable
Credit for this application goes to Kent C. Dodds. The starter application was ported to Next.js from Kent's Remix workshops at Frontend Masters.
Why this course? Simply put, many are wondering how to migrate their application to Next.js new app router architecture and make use of server components, server actions, etc.
"Server components are the future." Twitter is saturated with comments like this. Many of us feel like it is tech version of Thanos, "Dread it. Run from it. Server Components arrive all the same."
Is this true? Emphatically no. So we can silence the infinity war now and say there is nothing wrong with using the pages router.
In fact, after the initial deployment lesson, you could stop this course and go make it something better or into something you want it to be using the pages router.
There are many incredible additions to Next.js new app router architecture. This is simply a course and resource for you should you choose/desire to migrate from pages router to app router.
You will learn how to:
And much more.
Due to the applications scale here are a few things to note:
And with that you are good to go!
Start your journey today and experience the possibilities of the Next.js app router
On the Supabase side we look at:
This course is a deep dive into modern web development and I'm very excited to see what you're going to build on the other side! 🚀
Developers aren’t the only ones working on sites.
Marketers, copywriters, designers, and other non-coding roles all need to be able to make content changes. If you don't want to be bothered to open a PR every time a typo needs fixed, you need a CMS.
And Strapi is an amazing CMS option.
Strapi helps you quickly build a robust content API. You can host it yourself, it supports both RESTful and GraphQL, handles your authentication, lets you bring team members and it's highly customizable with plugins and extensions.
You can take those gains even further by adding Next.js 13 to the stack.
Next.js is fast, supports both server and client-side rendering, and features dynamic routes. Once you are generating dynamic pages from your CMS you’ll see just how powerful the combination of Strapi and Next.js is!
In this course you will do the following:
By the end of this course you’ll be building pages and managing your content like a pro!
SvelteKit is an application framework that builds on top of Svelte that provides you the app level functionality you need. It does the boring stuff that you don't want to so you can execute on the projects you want.
As you build with SvelteKit, you'll find it continues the philosphy of Svelte by adhering to Web Standards and APIs. It builds on top of Web APIs so when you're develop SvelteKit sites you are also learning skills that will transfer to any web-based project
In this course, you will build a modern SvelteKit blog powered by Sanity CMS. You'll start from scratch and build out a site that dynamically generates pages that you create inside Sanity.
As you build your blog, you will learn how to:
Get started building web applications with Angular and Firebase.
In this course, you'll learn how to set up and use Firebase in your Angular applications using the AngularFire library.
We choose the AngularFire library because it is an official library created by the Firebase and Angular teams to work better with Angular.
It helps you by wrapping everything into observables and helps update zones.
By the end of this course, you'll be able to build web applications using Cloud Firestore as your database, Firebase Authentication as your Auth system, Cloud Storage to save files, and Firebase Hosting to deploy your applications to the web.
RTK Query is a powerful new way to model data fetching and caching in Redux applications. It’s built on top of Redux Toolkit, but hides almost any interaction with reducers, selectors or thunks behind custom hooks generated specifically for your API.
If your redux application relies heavily on data coming in from over the network, there’s a good chance RTK Query is worth adopting. It will allow you to remove significant chunks of code while also giving you new tools for error handling and cache invalidation that will make your users smile. Apply what I teach in this course and you won’t have to think about thunks ever again.
Sample code can be found here: https://github.com/xjamundx/egghead-rtkq
Learn how to build a pin-input component with state machines, Zag.js and React.
We’ll look at modeling a UI component with state machines, implementing those in a framework agnostic way using Zag.js, and connect the logic to the UI component.
This course is a must-watch if you’re unfamiliar with State machines, and want to learn how to use them to build UI components with ease.
In this course, you will:
Auth0 Actions are serverless developer tools you can use to customize Auth0.
Actions allow developers to extend Auth0 beyond what it can do out of the box by adding logic to login, user registration, password changes, and other events. You can quickly solve complex identity problems without hosting your own environment, and worrying about performance, maintenance, and security. Your code is stored and runs on infrastructure owned and maintained by Auth0.
With the drag-and-drop flow editor, you can visually arrange Actions to build custom identity flows. You don’t have to rewrite your code to reorder and reconfigure functions.
Follow along with Will Johnson as you download a sample application configured with Auth0, then write code for several Actions.
Some examples of Actions you can create:
This course will give you a solid foundation to start developing your own Actions.
Supabase is a collection of open-source tools that wrap around a PostgreSQL database. In this course, we look at building a realtime chat application with Remix, using Supabase for db hosting, authentication, authorization and subscribe to realtime db events - updating the UI as the database changes.
We will learn about:
This course is 100% TypeScript, however, don't stress if you don't have any experience with TS, as Supabase does most of the heavy lifting here! 🎉
Almost every React application needs to fetch data from a server and cache the result between renders.
Traditionally, in-memory API Caching is something that has been done in React applications either on a per-component-level, which lead to application state running out of sync, or using a global state like Redux, which required a lot of hand-written code.
RTK Query is part of the official Redux Toolkit and provides an application-global API cache that abstracts most of that hand-written code away, leading to a lot more readable code bases.
It also offers a lot of advanced features like auto-generated hooks
In this course, you will learn about
createApito define multiple endpoints to interact with your API
useQueryhooks and how to use them in your application
ApiProvideror a pre-existing Redux store
Personalizing the user experience is becoming more critical every day, even more so if your application or content is consumed by users in different parts of the world who most likely use other languages, date formats, currency, etc.
There are multiple solutions to make your content adapt to the location or language of your users. Still, many of these methods have become outdated, complex, or dependent on a particular framework.
Monorepos are an amazing way to collaborate on a multitude of projects with other team members. The ability to share code seamlessly between projects and have a single source of truth is paramount when working on projects with multiple moving wheels.
One of the tradeoffs of a Monorepo is all of the management you have to do to make your projects run flawlessly and simultaneously. Each project has it’s own linting, building, testing, and deploying that it runs whenever code in that project changes.
This becomes a real problem when each of your projects lints, builds, tests, and deploys on every PR into your monorepo. You might be fine with a handful of projects but as your applications scale and you accrue more projects, you will need a way to scale.
Turborepo is the tool that solves your monorepo’s needs.
Turborepo is a task runner for Monorepos. Turborepo caches the results of your CI tasks, schedules those tasks to run at maximum speed, and only runs tasks on the affected code in your PRs. And because of remote caching, your coworkers, wherever they are, will have the most up-to-date code possible.
One of the greatest things about it is that it's easy to use and can be incrementally adopted. Turborepo is a thin layer on top of your Monorepo.
Turborepo doesn't get in the way as it is only a task runner. You don't have to modify your application code or anything to make it work.
You’ll learn about
So hop in and learn about Turborepo today!
In a monorepo, all of your apps and packages reside in a single repo. Structuring your code this way has many organizational benefits. You can more easily manage your dependencies, and you can maintain more consistency across your various apps.
But, if you attempted to do this with just yarn or pnpm alone, you'll quickly start running into productivity issues. Your build times will be very long, and you'll have to make sure to run builds for any internal packages an app is depending on.
That's where Nx comes in.
Combining the speed of pnpm with the efficiency of Nx gives you an amazingly performant monorepo setup.
Nx builds a graph of your workspace and all of the connected dependencies. If there is a change anywhere, Nx will know about it and everything that is affected by it.
Which means that Nx is able to use caching to prevent unnecessary builds when nothing has changed. Nx's caching features enable blazing fast <10ms build times 🔥
You get to have all the advantages of the monorepo with none of the performance issues!
So start watching this course and learn how to achieve these speeds today.
The “Edge” is where you write and store your code where your data is being produced. This allows for a quick and efficient data transfer, eliminating or severely reducing lag.
Supabase is a suite of open-source tools wrapping a PostgreSQL database. It provides the building blocks of an app - database hosting, auth, file storage, real-time, and edge functions - so we can focus on what makes our app unique.
Cloudflare Workers are serverless functions that run at the Edge! In this course, we will use the Wrangler CLI tool for interfacing with your Cloudflare account and creating or publishing your Workers.
KV Storage is a cache that Cloudflare makes available to our Workers. It replicates across multiple CDN nodes, making it super performant to cache data.
Combined, these three things give you the benefits of that reduced lag in a smooth and streamlined process.
Throughout this course, Jon will teach you how to create a small blog that hits the key points of how to:
Web3 is a paradigm shift in how applications are interacted with, ran, and built.
It’s not just a Pump-and-Dump scheme on cryptocurrencies or Bored Ape NFT profile pictures you can put on Twitter.
A fundamental tenet of Web3 is bringing ownership back to the user. You no longer have to trust that your data is being properly handled on someone else’s server (although, currently Web3 ecosystem mainly depends on centralized infrastructure such as GitHub).
This ownership is achieved through blockchain, cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and smart contracts.
A great example of this type of ownership is through how you exchange money in Web3. There is no intermediary like Stripe, or PayPal to process your transactions. You can even build your own smart contracts that receive crypto (e.g. Ethereum or ‘eth’ for short) and then process that eth how you’d like.
Building this type of smart contract is exactly what Matías is going to show you how to do right now.
Matías builds out a Web3 application that allows you to receive tips in the form of eth in a tip jar on your website. This means your application will be backed by a smart contract that’s accepts eth, stores data, and emits Solidity events.
While you build this application you will learn how to:
Smart Contracts are programs stored on the blockchain that run when certain conditions are fulfilled.
These Smart Contracts have many benefits to them such as speed, transparency, and security. The contract is immediately run as soon as the requirements are fulfilled. This creates a system where you place trust in a transparent system, instead of an opaque intermediary.
Noah will show you how to write, test, and deploy smart contracts on Ethereum, using the popular smart contract language, Solidity. You'll also learn how to use Foundry, a popular dev-toolbelt, to streamline our whole development process.
Throughout this course, you'll learn how to:
Approaching testing at a component level has definitely its benefits. Seeing your component rendered in isolation, and making sure it behaves correctly with different properties is definitely faster that trying to interact with an app at end-to-end level. On the other hand, seeing your app render in a browser in an end-to-end test is a significant advantage.
With Cypress’ component testing you can now take the best of both worlds. Render component and interact with it in a real browser. You can pass different properties, spy on its function calls, click and type into them or even intercept its network calls. All this with a minimal setup and vast options.
Next.js is one of the most popular server-side-rendered React frameworks you can use to build production-ready serverless applications in record time.
On the other hand, Fauna is a flexible, serverless, distributed document-relational database. Fauna has a powerful GraphQL API and custom resolver support.
Using Next.js and Fauna, you can build robust, feature-rich, production-ready full-stack applications without the hassle of managing any servers or databases.
In this course, Shadid guides you through building your very own full-stack serverless marketplace application using Next.js, GraphQL, and Fauna.
You will learn,
D3, or Data Driven Documents, is the defacto standard for data visualization on the web. It's an incredibly powerful library that gives you all the tools you need to build just about visualization you can dream of.
D3 is not a collection of predefined charts. Instead, it's a robust set of utilities you can use to ingest and transform data, to map that data to screen values, and ultimately to manipulate the DOM to render your visuals.
When working with React, D3's desire to manipulate the DOM is at odds with React's goal of rendering the UI as a function of state. So how do we handle this? Simply put, we use D3 for everything up to the point where we want to render our output, and then we hand all that data to React for rendering.
In this course, we'll start from scratch and build out an SVG bar chart for some sample data. We'll lean on D3 for its tools and then hand that data off to React for rendering.
In this course, Colby is going to do a deep dive into creating a full store for your products. You'll learn how to set up and use GraphCMS as your content management system. You'll learn about the Cloudinary UI extension and how to use it to host your images. You'll learn about Snipcart and using the useSnipcart hook to handle the cart state and the checkout. You'll learn how to implement Stripe as your payment gateway. And lastly, you'll learn how to deploy a Next js app to vercel from github with environment variables.
In this course we demonstrate how to get started with Microsoft Playwright. We follow this up with various features of Playwright that make it extremely easy for you to test and automate modern web applications.
Jotai's state management is primitive and flexible. This gives you room to build, compose, and share state throughout your application exactly how you need it.
This flexibility can become hard to manage when you have complex requirements that span across a number of states your application can be in.
Jotai lets you leverage other state management solutions through integrations so that you can solve the problem you're facing exactly how you need to.
One of those integrations is XState. XState gives you a safe abstraction to enumerate and handle the complex states your application can be in.
With Jotai + XState, you get the flexibility and ease of use of Jotai with the power of XState.
XState is a sophisticated library to provide a better and safer abstraction for state management.
TypeScript has been growing in popularity among companies who build their products with React, and for good reason!
Types play nicely when working with components, and lead to a super smooth developer experience.
But what if your application is already being shipped and continuously deployed? It doesn't mean you can't take advantage of everything TypeScript has to offer.
Refactoring an application to TypeScript doesn't have to be daunting. Follow Chance's lead, and you'll be well on your way!
The course starts with an overview of some of Chance's favorite tools and their TypeScript-specific settings. These tools will help you search your project's TypeScript paths for auto-importing, a shorthand tool for writing JSX and TypeScript to speed up your writing, and a tool for helping you to maintain your code to a high quality.
The tools are Emmet, ESLint, Prettier, and a variety of VSCode extensions. There's even some rollup and Babel thrown in for transpiling and compiling our TypeScript to make configuration and build setup a breeze.
Once the tooling is in place, Chance works through converting a completely functional Windows 98-style Minesweeper game away from JS React into one that takes advantage of the power of TypeScript. It'll be clear how changing the JS to TS will not affect the functionality of the game at all but improves the safety of your app.
Topics in the second half of the course include component refactoring as well as adding types to React Hooks, useReducer, and Context. You'll even see how to add types to a legacy Class component!
Chance has several years of experience working with component libraries and this is your opportunity to learn from his experience and apply his process to your own.
Chance will give you the knowledge of how to incorporate TypeScript into any React application, whether it's shipped and continuously deployed or not. You'll take the practices and tools that you learn here to be much more productive in your TypeScript, wherever you use it. Lastly, He will give you the knowledge of when you see React Types vs your own custom types.
This is not an introduction to React or TypeScript course. You will need to have a basic understanding of the two to be able to follow along. If you don't have that basic understanding, or just want a refresher on the subjects, The Beginner's Guide to React and Up and Running with TypeScript are the best two places to start.
The Beginner's Guide to React is the best place to go if you are just starting out in React. This course by Kent C. Dodds covers all the basics to get you up and running with React.
Advanced TypeScript Fundamentals by Marius Schulz will take you beyond the basics to teach you some new language features TypeScript has to offer courtesy of the wonderful team over ta TypeScript.
TypeScript: Tips and Tricks by Kamran Ahmed is where to go once you've started using TypeScript but looking for that little something to take it to the next level.
Most developers would raise an eyebrow if they saw database queries being done in a for-loop, but GraphQL provides just enough abstraction that it isn't always intuitive exactly how many times each resolver fires at scale, nor is it obvious how to batch operations efficiently and still return the correct results to the correct consumer.
You'll learn how to use the GraphQL Data Loader pattern to improve the performance of your application, and solve scaling issues before they become a problem.
To do this, we'll first implement our own naive version of the pattern to understand why the API is shaped how it is. Then we will switch over to the official DataLoader package and explore the benefits further.
Front-end web architecture has made exciting advances in recent years. But before we get to that we need to have a discussion on what has led us to this point and the driving principles behind it.
Since JQuery, we've progressively been decoupling our logic from the DOM. After JQuery, frameworks like Angular were able to abstract that logic into controllers and services. Then Redux came along and brought a simplified that let us reorganize our logic into more cohesive units.
We should be taking advantage of improved decoupling in the modern web. If you can write a function you can write an endpoint. And if you understand frontend architecture principles, then you already understand cloud architecture principles.
So check out this course and start lifting your functions into the cloud today!
Scripting can save you a ton of time by automating your daily workflows.
But it's hard to justify the time investment of learning Bash to write your scripts.
Bash is the great barrier we all face when trying to script away our daily tasks. There are some common problems that we run into when dealing with it. Like what if we want to display images? Or share our script with other devs cross platform?
You know what you want your script to do. You know you could figure it out if you had the time. But it's all just too darn much.
Script Kit is the tool that’s been missing from your developer toolbox for so, so long. 🛠
Download the new hotness here: https://scriptkit.com 🔥
We even use Script Kit internally at egghead.io to manage our lesson transcripts! With a single script, we query an API to list the transcripts, modify them as necessary, then post the changes.
This course was made to show you what Script Kit can do for you.
John Lindquist, the creator of Script Kit and co-founder of egghead.io, has put together this series of lessons to give a quick overview of the features of Script Kit to help you get oriented.
We know you’ll be off and having a blast with your own scripting ideas in no time!
Animations do more than just look good. They can draw the user's attention to important information or let them know they can interact with certain elements.
You can use them to smooth transitions and bring your applications to life. It makes you stand out from the usual wall of text that you see on most applications.
But here is the issue, animations can get complicated. You have to have a good understanding of how CSS works but it takes hours of studying before you can even start trying to animate.
Framer Motion solves this for you and Will Johnson will show you how.
In this course, you’ll iteratively add animation to a fully-styled shopping list app that’s built-in React.
You’ll see how Framer works out of the box, and learn just how customizable it is. Throughout the course, Will demonstrates animation through changing size, direction, and even appearance.
It has smart defaults that handle making the animations smooth and performant. Automatically animating layout changes. It does so much for you it almost feels like you're cheating.
You’ll even see how to animate the path of an SVG making it draw the path for your image.
Will gives you the knowledge of how to incorporate Framer Motion into any React application. You will be able to customize your animations to do whatever it is you want/need and show your users what items on your app are interactable. You’ll be able to take your static application and make it interactive.
There are no prerequisites for this course. The application we are working on is already built for you so you just have to be able to follow along with Will as he integrates Framer Motion into the app.
If you are further interested in learning about animating your applications, Spring Animation in React with React Spring is a great place to learn! Christian Nwamba will teach you the skills to begin using the react-spring library and add animation to your React components.
If you are interested in more courses by Will Johnson, he has a mini-course on how to Create A Blog With Jekyll. Will shows you how to download, install Jekyll plugins, and create blog posts.
Build a fully managed, serverless GraphQL API powered by TypeScript and AWS CDK in a matter of hours, not days.
AWS CDK gives us the power to go all-in with infrastructure as code for AWS. With it, we can create a full GraphQL API with AppSync, a database with DynamoDB, serverless functions with Lambda, and much more.
In this course, you will learn how to do all of the above from your command line and code editor, which will save you time and give you greater flexibility.
Want to delete your stack? That's fine, just run
cdk destroy and poof, all of the resources are gone. Changed your mind? Just deploy the stack again and they all come back.
AWS CDK makes it that easy.
And since we are working from the command line and our code editor, we will take advantage of TypeScript and other third-party libraries to improve our developer experience.
So stop wasting time in the AWS console, check out this course, and learn how to leverage infrastructure as code to your advantage.
GROQ (Graph-Relational Object Queries) is a query language for JSON. This course will help you build your first query and walk you through filters, projections, functions, and the other features of GROQ to help you request exactly the data that you want.
In this course, John Lindquist will teach you how to create and structure GROQ queries to load exactly the data you want.
The course will kick off by giving you a quick introduction on what GROQ is, and then you will learn how to use the different features the language supports.
At the end of this course you will know how to use GROQ in the context of a Sanity.io dataset.
Your app can react in various way on different network conditions. Cypress has a great toolset for setting up those conditions, which enable you to test your app thoroughly. That way you can ship your app with confidence.
Cypress’ .intercept() command is one of the most fun command to use. And it’s also one of the most useful.
Especially when you are done with all your happy paths and want to increase your test coverage with some edge cases.
These edge cases can mean different data, headers or server behavior. You can modify all of these, dynamically or with a static fixture prepared beforehand
In this course, we will be building a React Native news app that is read-only when offline.
The videos are recorded on a Mac with an iPhone 13 Simulator using plain React Native, but you can do this course using Android, Windows and even the Expo managed workflow. See the lesson description for platform-specific instructions. The solutions repo has been verified to work on a Pixel 3a Emulator on Mac.
The completed app for this course is available here and each lesson will include a link to the commit that added the code so you can check your work.
After we build our news app, we're going to enhance it to make it read-only when offline using urql'g GraphCache.
This course will require you to run the api locally on your device. The api repo is available here.
Get started building dynamic apps with GraphQL and Vue3.
As your app scales, so does the complexity of managing your routes and API endpoints.
It gets tiresome.
But this aspect of web development can be streamlined considerably!
GraphQL is a powerful tool for querying and mutating your data. In this course, we are going to create a Vue3 app that leverages GraphQL to create a dynamic front end.
But what does GraphQL do?
Its power comes from giving you a single endpoint that you make all your queries to. Instead of making a request to a specific endpoint and getting a fixed response, you can write flexible queries to a single endpoint.
Vue3 has some great new features that we will be exploring, such as the setup script syntax. But you won't just be exploring Vue3's new features, we will be building a dynamic front end with an index, view pages generated from data, and forms.
To make our frontend dynamic, we will be powering it with GraphQL. We start with the basics by creating queries but we move on to more advanced topics such as query params, mutations, and pagination.
To actually use GraphQL in our Vue app we will be using the Vue Apollo Client. Which gives us convenient methods for making queries, getting the data back into the client, and handling errors.
Some entry-level knowledge on Vue and GraphQL is recommended, but this course is beginner-friendly enough to where it isn't a strict requirement.
If you want to build a deeper foundation for both Vue and GraphQL we have a couple of awesome courses that you can hack through.
For Vue, check out The Beginner's Guide to Vue 3, which is also by Kevin. It's great for both newcomers to web dev and veterans alike.
And for GraphQL, work through GraphQL Query Language from Eve Porcello. Eve literally wrote the book on learning GraphQL and her course is similarly top quality.
Progressive Web Apps are a more advanced topic, and converting an existing Single Page Vue App into one makes for an excellent follow-up project. -> Offline-First Progressive Web Apps (PWA) in Vue.js
If you want to take your GraphQL game to the next level, then becoming an expert in designing GraphQL schemas is the way to go. -> Designing GraphQL Schemas
And I know the following recommendation is a React course but it really is that good. You will learn some advanced techniques that will be applicable to Vue or any other Apollo compatible framework that you work with. -> Manage State in React Apps with Apollo Client and GraphQL
When you are first building your blog site, it can be difficult to choose what content management system you want to use, and choosing a new framework can be daunting. They can be overwhelming and have a large learning curve.
Open up your knowledge of a powerful Nuxt module with Nuxt Content! Nuxt has a low barrier of entry and you don't have to fight with a content management system or API keys.
In this course, you will learn how to create your own blog with just Nuxt and a folder of markdown files. Ben will take you from creating your Nuxt project from scratch all the way to deploying your digital garden on Netlify.
Ben Hong is one of the core team members over at Vue.js and has developed this course to give you a concrete understanding of Nuxt Content and how to build your blog efficiently.
In this course, you will learn all about AWS Amplify and how you can leverage it to handle authentication and authorization in your applications.
Ali Spittel takes all of this and puts it in one streamlined package that will get your users signed in, creating, and accessing data in the blink of an eye! Amplify helps you configure serverless backends with authentication, storage, and data, using intuitive workflows.
Amplify abstracts a lot of deep auth mechanics away from you, the developer, and allows you to harness the power of backend development without needing deep cloud knowledge. At the end of this course, you will be able to Build a React App with Authorization and Authentication from scratch.
Storybook is a tool for UI development. It makes development faster and easier by isolating components. This allows you to work on one component at a time. You can develop entire UIs without needing to start up a complex dev stack, force specific data into your database.
In this course, Michael Chan will teach you how to integrate Storybook 6.3 with Next.js 11 so that you can flawlessly build UIs.
The course will kick off by taking the default Next.js page and turning it into a Story. You will then learn how to leverage Story

You're going to find cloud services being used at nearly any enterprise you work for. So it's important for us developers to at least have a high-level understanding of this infrastructure.
And since AWS has the dominant share of the cloud market, being familiar with it is incredibly valuable and opens a lot of doors.
But gaining that familiarity isn't easy. Just browsing through the list of 200+ services is overwhelming.
Getting started with learning AWS usually involves having a dozen or more open tabs and the feeling that you're going down a rabbit hole that never ends.
This course is an alternative to that stress. It has been structured like a boat tour on a river of knowledge, linearly guiding you through the core of AWS.
By the end of this course, you will be confidently spinning up servers, creating relational databases, storing static assets, and writing serverless functions with confidence.
So, whether you need to learn AWS for your current job or are looking to earn your cloud practitioner certification, start watching this course and gain the skills you need today.
The Edge is one of the most exciting new topics in web development. At the front of the pack is Cloudflare, whose network boasts servers located in hundreds of cities all over the world instead of in regions like "East" or "West".
More servers in more locations mean a faster experience for your users.
But what about the data part of the equation?
If the application you're working on skews more toward "reading" rather than "writing" data, Cloudflare Workers KV is a perfect fit.
Once you create a KV namespace— the "KV" stands for "key-value"— Cloudflare keeps track of your application data. The most commonly accessed data will be propagated around the world to the various Edge servers, while less popular data will be stored in more central locations.
Kristian Freeman has produced courses that introduce how to build and deploy sites and JSON APIs powered by Cloudflare Workers.
Today, he will show you how Workers KV can be integrated into a Cloudflare Workers project through building a Todo App.
Before you groan about a bland Todo App, think about it this way:
The Todo App is the perfect example of the CRUD operations. Cloudflare KV has its own nuances for reading and writing data through a concept called Binding that is easier to grok when you understand the larger example as a whole.
As the course progresses, Kristian shares examples of how you can store more complex key-values, along with data operations like editing and filtering.
One of the coolest features that Cloudflare KV allows for is user-specific data that is tied to the IP address the request originates from. In other words, you'll be able to share your deployed Todo app with anyone around the world, and they will only see their personal items.
You'll need to have a basic understanding of what Cloudflare Workers is recommended but not necessary. This course is relatively beginner-friendly into the world of Workers KV that you can get by with no knowledge on Cloudflare Workers.
But if you want to get the most out of this course, we would recommend taking Introduction to Cloudflare Workers to get a better understanding of how Workers KV comes into play.
Follow along with Kristian Freeman as you build a localization engine that renders data based on the Edge location nearest to the application's user. → Introduction to Cloudflare Workers
Learn how to build your own serverless APIs so you can manage a highly available backend for your projects. No Learning DevOps or managing services necessary. → Build a Serverless API with Cloudflare Workers
Using Cloudflare Pages and Cloudflare Workers, it's easy to create dynamic front ends that you can deploy in just seconds from GitHub. → Deploy Dynamic Frontend Applications with Cloudflare Pages
Protect yourself from unexpected charges by learning how to use Firebase emulators.
By using Firebase emulators you no longer have to create a second dev firebase project to avoid using production data. You also don't run the risk of having a cloud function crash and run up a huge bill.
In this course, you'll learn how to set up and use Firebase's authentication, function, and Firestore emulators. You will also learn how to safely set up Cloud Function emulation, import seed data into your emulators, and disable the emulators in production.
By the end of this course, you'll be able to confidently set up a safe environment for testing in your own applications!
Create a serverless application and deploy it in under thirty minutes!
We'll be using Netlify, Vite, TypeScript, and React in our project. This stack synergizes extremely well for rapidly developing professional-quality applications.
If you haven't heard of Vite, it's the French word for quick! It's also a build tool that consists of a dev-server and an extremely fast bundler. It makes for a rapid development loop.
As for the rest. Netlify makes hosting fast and easy with serverless functions and continuous deployment. React enables you to quickly create reusable components. And TypeScript helps you write cleaner code that is easier to refactor.
So get started and learn how to use this stack in your own applications!
For your frontend, this application will be using Next.js and Tailwind CSS. You will learn how to maneuver around an app and build a strong static pricing page.
For your backend AND authentication, we will make use of Supabase. Supabase is open source and is all of the backend services that you will need to build your site. It includes a dedicated and scalable Postgres database and user management with Row Level Security!
Lastly, for payments, you will be using Stripe. It will be an individual payment checkout system that will create and update users' subscriptions.
Jon will take you through all of this and more in just 1 hour and 10 minutes!
Optimizing your application is key to being able to provide your users with a clean and pleasurable experience.
To make your app as performant as possible, you have to send to the browser the least amount of code possible. Also, you want to render the least amount of components on a page at a time as necessary. Then you also want to rerender components in the least amount of time possible.
Tyler has found that working in enterprises and startup cultures that, as you get more developers in a team and as your application grows, a lot of these little practices become ignored or forgotten or missed on a refactor or a pull request. They start to build up over time. Then, at the end of the day, you have a slow-performing app. You go through it, and you have to do all these little updates.
In each one of these lessons, Tyler going to be adding and deleting code to walk you through how to optimize a React app using a dashboard React app as the example.
