The web (mostly) revolves around interactions, where people might be trying to accomplish a task or check in on something. As developers, we need a way to hook into these interactions regardless of the tools we use. While React gives us a lot of help with this out-of-the-box, how can we break free to leverage the full APIs of browsers?
WordPress is King CMS for a reason. It provides a great editing experience and is well known for those who consider themselves technical or not. But with a default installation, the content you can manage is a bit limited. How can we extend that with custom fields via ACF and use that data when querying WPGraphQL in our apps?
Part of what makes the web a great place is the ability for developers to personalize content and app experiences to the person using it. How can we add authentication to a Next.js app to tailor those experiences for our visitors?
Being able to communicate with others is a critical component of what makes people and businesses collaborate on the web. That usually starts with having some kind of form or interaction that triggers a notification or email. How can we use SendGrid to make sure those emails get delivered?
Markdown is a popular format for authoring. MDX takes that up a notch giving authors more tools to create interactive experiences. How can we take advantage of MDX in frameworks like Next.js to build projects with content sourced from MDX?
Blogs are a great way to get down your thoughts to help others learn, keep track of progress, or even to help reinforce an idea to help yourself learn. WordPress is a popular blog platform that’s been around for a while and Next.js is a modern popular web framework for building React apps. How can we use them together to build a fast and reliable blog?
Building dynamic web apps that can be statically hosted, commonly known as the Jamstack, is a powerful way to help provide a fast and reliable experience to your website visitors. There are a lot of options for how you can do this, such as AWS S3, Azure Static Web Apps, Netlify, and Vercel, but there’s a new kid on the block, coming from a dominant force on the web: Cloudflare Pages.
Next.js has been steadily growing as a must-have tool for developers creating React apps. Part of what makes it great is its data fetching APIs to request data for each page. But how can we use that API to make GraphQL queries for our app?
