Introduction to Next.js

The "Introduction to Next.js" workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to Next.js, a powerful React framework for building efficient and scalable web applications. Next.js simplifies the development process by offering features such as server-side rendering, automatic code splitting, and route prefetching out of the box. In this workshop, participants will explore the basics of Next.js, its key features, and the benefits it brings to web development. From setting up a Next.js project to building dynamic pages and handling data fetching, attendees will gain the knowledge and practical skills needed to kickstart their journey with Next.js and build more efficient and scalable web applications.


Understanding Next.js Fundamentals

  • Introduction to Next.js and its role in modern web development
  • Key features and benefits of using Next.js for building web applications
