Hands on Next.js (Individual)
Hands on Next.js
A Practical Fullstack Book on Universal (Server) Rendering for React
About the Book
Server side rendering still seems like mystery to a lot of us. The journey doesn't end at having a chunk of markup rendered to the server, rather, you have to consider other factors including syncing data and routing. Next.js is a great React-based tool that allows you to focus on writing your React logic while it does the SSR heavy lifting for you. Yes, just write React and your page contents are automatically server-rendered while following all the recommended patterns and practices.
This book is first of its kind and covers everything you need to know on building Next.js while teaching a lot of modern practices for building web apps. Some of the topics you will enjoy learning include:
- React fundamentals (refresher)
- Server side rendering
- Media transformation and optimization for speed
- Offline capabilities
- Data with GraphQL
- Data with Rest
- Isomorphic data fetching
- Authentication and security, etc
The goal is to take you through a journey, which when completed, you should be able to build future-proof web apps that are optimized for the next billion users.
What I was told about Next.js
If this doesn't sound convincing enough, maybe you could consider what other engineers are saying about Next.js...
"We migrated our whole frontend stack to next.js and we significantly boosted site performance and development ease! We migrated away from global CSS, moving our styles to the components, and extended <Link> for supporting the prefetching of page data alongside with structure (which we blogged about here)."
GUIDO MALIANDI - Scale API
"Ticketmaster decided to move to a single page application and chose React as a framework. However SEO is critical to our business and that made server side rendering absolutely necessary. Next.js has allowed us to move quickly, while catering to this requirement and offering us great performance out of the box."
DAMIAN VARRON - Ticketmaster
"We love React. And love simplicity of Nextjs how quickly a developer can pick it and start using it. We use it with Apollo Graphql client. And on backend we use Keystonejs with graphql api. Keystonejs generates admin ui automatically for us. We love our stack."
PARMINDER KLAIR - Staunch Media
What I was told about Hands on Next.js
"There are many great developers out there. But there are few great developers that understand how to convey concepts simply. Christian is one of those amazing developers that can break down complicated concepts to their core and be able to teach. In Hands on Next.js will take you into real-world static React applications in an enjoyable and focused way."

C++20 is the next big C++ standard after C++11. As C++11 did it, C++20 changes the way we program modern C++. This change is, in particular, due to the big four of C++20: ranges, coroutines, concepts, and modules.
