August 2021 Developer Meetup

At our August meetup, Branden Youngz gave us an amazing, detailed, and hugely helpful walkthrough of his new site built using WordPress and Gatsby. See the video below for a deep dive into a real world example of WordPress, Gatsby, GraphQL, and all the things that went into this website build.

Notes

Gatsby now listens for changes to your site and only rebuilds what is needed, not the whole site. Also supports incremental builds using GItHub hooks.

Gatsby has static and dynamic routing, automatic image optimization, and prefetches links

If your site needs a lot of server-side processing, authentication, dynamic-user specific content, etc., this is not a good fit/solution.
