This video is a talk from Byteconf React 2020, a free, live-streamed React conference that aired on May 1st-2nd, 2020. Join our newsletter at the conference website to stay in the know about future conferences, videos, and more!

Building performing React apps is hard. Like really hard. You have to know how to setup webpack, Babel, code-splitting, TypeScript, and the list goes on. What about performance, eh? How about building SSR + SSG + Serverless + Offline enabled applications?

In 2020, when building React web applications, my default choice is Next.js. It offers built-in performance, route prefetching, dynamic imports with code splitting, and probably the best server-side rendering experience β€” all of that with a no config setup.

By the end of this talk, you'll be a lot less scared of creating high-performance web applications that are scalable with both static and dynamic serverless components.

Thanks to Ahmad Awais who presented this talk at Byteconf React 2020!
