Gatsby is a modern website framework that builds performance into every website by leveraging the latest web technologies such as React, GraphQL, and modern Javascript. Referred to as a JAMstack (Javascript, APIs and Markup), Gatsby (https://www.gatsbyjs.org/) offers a new way of building websites that delivers better performance, higher security, lower cost of scaling, and a better developer experience. This presentation assumes no prior knowledge other than some basic HTML and CSS experience and walks through the process of creating a web site using Gatsby.
