Next.js: Choosing an Optimal Rendering Pattern for your Application

Originally aired:

About the Session

Next.js, a popular React framework, has introduced many different rendering patterns over the years - but which one makes the most sense for your application? As usual, there is no one-size-fits-all answer, but your decision could make or break your applications performance and user experience. Making your users stare at a white screen while your website loads is sub-optimal and can lead to them looking elsewhere. Luckily, Next.js provides the tools you need to make your website feel like it loads almost instantly!

In this talk, we'll discuss the pros and cons of different rendering patterns such as static site generation (SSG), server side rendering (SSR), and incremental static regeneration (ISR). We'll also take a look at a promising new pattern called partial prerendering (PPR) which solves many of the problems that come up in other patterns.

By the end of the session, you will be armed with the knowledge to decide which rendering pattern will give you the best overall performance and user experience for your application.
