Gatsby is a great new way to build websites and apps and gives you so much for free including:
- Progressive Web application
- Offline support (with a service worker!)
- Responsive images
In this workshop, we’ll start from the ground up to lay the foundation for how we can use the powerful combination of headless data sources with the modern app generator Gatsby to create engaging web applications. Whether you have little React experience or tons, it is my hope that this workshop will still contain valuable information!
- Basic React and GraphQL
- Getting started with Gatsby
- Using data sources via source plugins
- Using custom data sources
- Popular plugins for CSS-in-JS, offline support, syntax highlighting etc
- Gatsby API Hooks for custom pages, redirects and providers
- Dynamic data and beyond the static site
- Best practises and taking your Gatsby site to production
