We are joining up a again with our friends at the NYC Web Performance Group https://www.meetup.com/Web-Performance-NY/ and React Ladies https://www.meetup.com/React-Ladies/ for a great meetup about performance with Gatsby, a React framework for building websites and apps.
Gatsby utilizes, internalizes, and enables many performance techniques to make your application lightning fast.
You've certainly heard and used some of these: the PRPL pattern, prefetching content, intersection observers, and more all coalesce to deliver the rocking performance your users expect. In this talk, Dustin Schau will take a dive deep into the internals of Gatsby to understand just what Gatsby is doing and how we enable fast applications, by default.
We'll end with a brief section on practical advice and tools for proving that your application is, and more importantly remains, lightning fast.
Jason Lengstorf will live-code, building out a portfolio site with Gatsby, along the way demonstrating techniques around image optimization, srcset, traced SVG, and more.
