Performant by Default, React Web Apps in 2020

Building performing React apps is hard. Like really hard. You have to know how to setup webpack, Babel, code-splitting, TypeScript, and the list goes on. What about performance, eh? How about building SSR + SSG + Serverless + Offline enabled applications?

In 2020, when building React web applications, my default choice is Next.js. It offers built-in performance, route prefetching, dynamic imports with code splitting, and probably the best server-side rendering experience — all of that with a no config setup.

By the end of this talk, you'll be a lot less scared of creating high-performance web applications that are scalable with both static and dynamic serverless components.
