  • What does server-side rendering mean?

  • What makes Next.js a strong framework?

  • What are some e-commerce challenges that Next.js helps to solve?

  • How is performance important to e-commerce?

  • How does Next.js help with performance?

  • How is SEO important to e-commerce?

  • How does Next.js help with SEO?

  • What's the most overlooked, yet oddly difficult part of e-commerce?

  • Accessibility, internationalisation and personalisation in e-commerce

Colby is a super-nice host and I can't wait to hang out with him again. Thanks for having me, Colby!
