53: Embrace the PHP with Next.js, Featuring Tim Neutkens

Have you had the privilege of working in PHP?

If you haven't let me tell you: You can have a dynamic website just by putting a single PHP file on a host, anywhere.

It's magic

For us React developers, everything is a lot more complicated.

We want server-side rendering for Google crawl-ability, Hot Module Replacement for quick feedback in development, and code-splitting to get quick initial page loads for users.

None of that is easy to implement.

But there's hope.

The team at Zeit wants you to have all that but with the simplicity of that beautiful PHP workflow.

And they've done it.

We sit with Tim Neutkens, lead developer on Next.js, an open source framework, for react, by Zeit.

He tells us how you can get back to that beautiful, fun PHP experience but with all of the benefits of SSR, HMR, AMP, and so many more initialisms.

I'm so excited to share this chat about Next.js the next-live of static site generation.
