Who's behind this?

I am Arunoda Susiripala. I was a Next.js maintainer a few years back.

What's the format of the course?

I believe in the "learn by doing" approach. These lessons contain a mix of text content, code, videos, and quizzes. Try it out.

When can we access This course?

If you are a supporter, Arunoda will email every week with updates to the course. Otherwise, the course will be available to the public on September 1st.

Will this course available for the public for FREE?

I believe in open access to education. But at the same time, content creators should get paid properly. That's why I'm doing this as a fundraising project.

When will you charge me?

We charge the credit card Today. But, you can change your mind until September 1st, 2020. Contact for cancellations.

Why don't you use GraphQL?

GraphQL is a way to query a data source. After you have complete this course, you can simply use a GraphQL data source. I wanted to make it as simple as possible.

Why don't you use Redux, Recoil, or Mobx ?

Most of the time, you don't need a solution like this. You can do a lot with React hooks and data fetching features in Next.js. We use vercel/swr as a data management layer because it's simple to use but powerful.

Trust me. I worked with a pretty big Next.js app; we never needed Redux.

I have some questions. How to contact you?

Let's discuss here or send me an email.
