Build a Server-rendered ReactJS Application with Next.js by @tgrecojs on @eggheadio

  • In this course we we’ll see just how quickly next.js makes the process of building server-rendered ReactJS applications by creating and deploying an application that loads blog posts from the Google Blogger API.
  • Along the way we’ll learn about many of the amazing features Next.js provides for us out of the box, such as route prefetching and code-splitting, thus allowing us to spend more time developing and virtually no time setting up our environment.
  • Additionally, we’ll learn about the core concepts behind the framework and see how we can leverage them to create dynamic routes and integrate Material-UI on the server.
  • We won’t have to worry about using any specific architecture to handle state, instead we will just pass our data as ReactJS using Next.js’ lifecycle hook.
  • Throughout this course we will see why Next.js has gained such an amazing reputation as a “minimalist framework” by supplying users with “pretty” error messages.

Advanced React Component Patterns – kentcdodds

Advanced #ReactJS Component Patterns:  by @kentcdodds #JavaScript

  • Two of my courses will be (have now been) released as part of Egghead’s annual Christmas course release celebration 🎉 One is The Beginner’s Guide to ReactJS and the other is Advanced React Component Patterns.
  • 👀The course starts with a single lesson where I implement a simple toggle component that manages its own state.
  • My hope is that by doing things this way you can quickly identify the trade-offs of the different patterns and know when each pattern would be most appropriate.The course wraps up by refactoring the toggle component to a redux component affectionately called “Rendux.” I think that you’ll be blown away…

An overview of some of the patterns covered in my recently released Egghead.io course (free until Friday). NOTE: This is a cross-post from my newsletter. I publish each email two weeks after it’s…
