Devstaff - Mar 2023 - React & Next.js

In this meetup, we'll dive into the basics of React and Next.js and explore some of their key features.

Thursday, March 9, 2023, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM (UTC+03:00)
Created by: DevStaff


React is a popular JavaScript library for building user interfaces. It's known for its declarative syntax, component-based architecture, and performance optimizations. Next.js, on the other hand, is a framework for building server-side rendered React applications. It adds features like automatic code splitting, server-side rendering, and static site generation. Together, React and Next.js offer a powerful combination for building modern web applications.

In this meetup, we'll dive into the basics of React and Next.js and explore some of their key features. Also, technologies that support building web applications from the React ecosystem will be presented. Whether you're new to React and Next.js or an experienced developer looking to deepen your skills, this meetup is for you!
