This week around the Gatsby islands
Yesterday I got to meet long-term internet friend Monica Lent, of Blogging for devs fame. If you haven't signed up for her free email course yet, you are in for a treat.
Hopefully, I get to meet many more internet friends IRL before the year ends as I'llI'll be speaking at the Jamstack Conf in San Fransisco and then at Modern Frontends in London 🎉
Gatsby is hyping the Data Layer these days. Coincidently my favorite part of Gatsby, so I am all for that. I am eager to get my hands on Runtime GraphQL for instance.
Runtime GraphQL. By far the most requested feature for the data layer! Soon you'll be able to query GraphQL — not just at build time — but from functions and during SSR.
Read Kyle Mathews blog post for more Data Layer goodies.
There have been five minor Gatsby releases while I've enjoyed the summer 🤯 Check out the release log to get up to speed. But here are some of my favs:
- Gatsby Head API - Better performance & more future-proof than
- Server Side Rendering (SSR) in development
