Learn to build your own user-generated content application for developers with the best of the JAMStack technologies
Every developer likes to read blog posts to learn new things or find the solution to specific problems. What's even better for developers is starting a blog to share ideas and connect with the dev community.
So in this course, we'll learn how to build a micro-blogging application using the best modern tools and technologies available to allow developers to start their own blog.
Next.js: a React-based web framework with a bunch of features out-of-the-box such as hybrid static and server rendering, file-system routing, API routes, TypeScript support, and so much more. It makes your React applications more powerful and faster to build and maintain
Tailwind CSS: a rapidly growing utility-first CSS framework that makes styling websites and web applications fast and flexible
Fauna DB: a flexible, developer-friendly, transactional database
Your users will have the ability to register to your application, write blog posts using the Markdown syntax, save drafts, and publish them. They will also be able to read the published blog posts of all the other users.
Finally, you'll launch and deploy your Next.js application to Vercel, the platform made for Next.js.
