All About Next.js

Online event

12 attendees

11:00PM - 1:00AM

Come join us online and learn all about Next.js! Next.js is a popular React framework that is used to create "production-grade React applications that scale." CLE React member James Mosier will walk us through getting started creating static and dynamic React sites using Next.js.

James's Talk:

There are many considerations to make when starting a new web application. Does it need to be a dynamic site? Or static? Or both?! Who will setup and manage your build tools (looking at you webpack!)? What do you do as the organization scales? The list goes on. With so many solutions out there specializing in one thing or another, which do you choose? What if you could have all of that and more? Well you’re in luck! Next.js is an all-in-one, zero configuration solution for production ready static and dynamic web applications. Used in production by some of the largest companies in the world, Next.js solves the tough problems so you can focus on creating great products for your users. Whether you are building an enterprise dashboard, e-commerce site, blog, or all of the above, Next.js can do it. In this talk we’ll cover all of this and more and dive into what makes Next.js so great for you and most importantly your users.

🔌 Websockets + ⚛️ React = 🤯 Real Time Data with Dylan Pierce

Online event

29 attendees

11:00PM - 1:00AM

Please join us for our third remote event! Dylan Pierce will be introducing us to Web Sockets and how to use them to power up your React apps!

Dylan's Talk:

Pulling from APIs gives your apps life. But what if you need to push from your API to your React app? Forget `setTimeout` with an API call every second - with web sockets you don't need that nonsense.

It's not rocket science either, with web sockets you can consume data in real time from your apps and give your customers a magical experience.

Use cases of web sockets include:

- Chat apps
- Live Dashboards
- SMS verification for authentication
- Fantasy Football apps

After this talk you should be able to understand the gist of how web sockets work, and know the basics to use them in your projects.
