Fast by Default: near instant load times at scale with GatsbyJS

Fast by Default : tayloring GatsbyJS to your own APIs to achieve near-instant load times at scale

GatsbyJS is a library that adds powerful static capabilities to React-powered webapps and packs many performance optimizations, making websites load instantly, by default. Gatsby plugins allows any datasource, including custom APIs, into a Gatsby-powered website with the expressiveness of GraphQL. In this talk we will cover the following topics:

  • How GatsbyJS & GraphQL enhance the performance, developer experience and scalability of modern webapps;
  • Tayloring GatsbyJS to your own APIs through Source Plugins;
  • Progressive refactoring of an existing, complex React webapp.

By the end of the talk, the audience will understand why GatsbyJS may be the next game-changer in terms of performance & DX, when to start with (or migrate over to) GatsbyJS, and how to seamlessly integrate it into their own technical context.
