Why I love building with Next.js — a fireside chat with Cassidy Williams of Netlify

In this fireside chat, I joined Cassidy Williams to talk about the performance benefits of Next.js, and how developers can make the most of the framework.

Next.js has a lot of options when it comes to data fetching methods, which can be both a blessing and a curse. Learn about how to think about data fetching methods in Next.js to build performant static sites that create dynamic user experiences. We also cover why we personally use Next.js for projects, the best way to style a Next.js app — and I decided to bring back the phrase “surf the web.”
