About this video
Next.js is a framework for building server-side rendered React websites as well as static websites. This is a project-based course for learning Next.js. You’ll build a music events application that will give you the foundational knowledge that you need to create your own applications. You’ll use Strapi as our backend, but you could just as well use anything.
The course starts with learning the fundamentals of Next.js like pages and routing, data fetching methods, custom API routes, static generation, CSS styling, and image optimization.
While working on the main project, you will also be working with Strapi CMS, authentication with JSON Web Tokens, authorization and access control, storing HttpOnly cookies on the server, pagination, search filters, and more, image uploading with Cloudinary integration, and deploying to Vercel and Heroku.
The second project is a static blog using Next.js called DevSpace, where you will work with Tailwind CSS integration, static data fetching/generation, create, fetch and parse markdown with Frontmatter, search functionality with API route/serverless function, post caching, Git Hooks with Husky, and deploy to Vercel.
By the end of this course, you will be able to create two different websites: Music Event Website and DevSpace (static blog) using Next.js and various other tools from development to deployment.
The code files and resource files are uploaded on the GitHub repository at https://github.com/PacktPublishing/Next.js-from-Development-to-Deployment-Build-a-Music-Event-Website
