Getting started with Next.js and Contentful

Starts on 16:00 UTC and is 4 hours.

Instructor: Salma Alam-Naylor and Stefan Judis

Next.js is a powerful Static Site Generator powered by React that gives you exceptional flexibility in how you fetch, pre-render and update the content that powers your web applications. In combination with Contentful — the headless content management platform — you can build, iterate, scale and deploy your content with ease.

In this workshop, Salma and Stefan will guide you through a fresh blog setup with Contentful and Next.js. You'll learn how to use Contentful's GraphQL API to generate dynamic pre-rendered static pages based on your blog entries, you'll explore the power of Contentful's Rich Text Field (it's so much nicer than a traditional WYSIWYG editor!) and understand how you can rebuild your website on content changes with either webhooks or Incremental Static Regeneration from Next.js.
