In this course we we’ll see just how quickly next.js makes the process of building server-rendered ReactJS applications by creating and deploying an application that loads blog posts from the Google Blogger API.

Along the way we’ll learn about many of the amazing features Next.js provides for us out of the box, such as route prefetching and code-splitting, thus allowing us to spend more time developing and virtually no time setting up our environment.

Additionally, we’ll learn about the core concepts behind the framework and see how we can leverage them to create dynamic routes and integrate Material-UI on the server. We won’t have to worry about using any specific architecture to handle state, instead we will just pass our data as ReactJS props using Next.js’ getInitialProps lifecycle hook.

Throughout this course we will see why Next.js has gained such an amazing reputation as a “minimalist framework” by supplying users with “pretty” error messages. Once finished, we’ll deploy our application to a live URL using the now-cli npm module.

Note: This courses uses an older version of Next.js

    What was your strongest take away from this collection?

    Would have been nice to have been given the .env endpoints needed to actually run the code as presented. I spent some time hacking this part so that I could follow along. Also, given that it is 3 years old, I wonder whether I am learning stale information. Otherwise, a great introduction!

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    Kinda a choppy. Course is 2 years old and there is no complete github solution. Unless I am missing something.

    The lesson 2 begins with code without any context for it, any begginer could get confused with it

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    Not extremely deep, but it does cover the basics plus a little more. Very good for beginners to get your feet wet.

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    Information is too generic. Should explain more on specification or functionalities of nextjs such as fetching data, component lifecycle and routing. CSS-IN-JS and styled-jsx really not that important as it included in reactjs by default.
