Taught a workshop

Getting started with Next.js and Contentful

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, we covered:

  • How to use Contentful's GraphQL API to generate dynamic pre-rendered static pages
  • The power of Contentful's Rich Text Field (it's so much nicer than a traditional WYSIWYG editor!)
  • How you can rebuild your website on content changes with either webhooks or Incremental Static Regeneration from Next.js
