I have been wanting to learn modern web frameworks for quite some time. With the recent announcement of React Server Components, the timing couldn't be better as I have decent experience on all things server-side.
I have heard great things about Next.js + Vercel and started looking into it. Last week, I ran into this project from Zach who revamped his website using Next.js. I got sucked into his simplistic design elements and implementation stack.
It took me a weekend to get all this setup, which is amazing. I have hosted my blogs in wordpress, hosting this website in Vercel is amazing, which makes deployments breeze, git commit triggers a new deployment, that simple! and their tooling is impressive.
Production build just under 17 seconds!
