How to deploy Next.js app to production 🚢
This article was originally published on my newsletter last week. I publish previous week's newsletter here on the blog. If you want to read these as soon as they are published, sign up for the newsletter!
This week was pretty Jamstack focused for me. This was because of two reasons.
The Jamstack conf was held 6.10-7.10 as a virtual conference. The first day was full of talks and the second day was dedicated to workshops. I wasn't able to participate on the workshops but I got a good dose of Jamstack watching the first day talks.
If you missed the conference, no worries! You can find the videos of the talks from this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL58Wk5g77lF-XaNacKxWk7yOKgeCMveAS.
How to deploy Next.js app to production
This week's video on the Youtube channel was also about Jamstack, well Next.js to be more specific.
In the video I show you how to deploy your Next.js application to production (using Vercel) and setup the deploy in a way that it automatically deploys your app when ever there is updated code in your Github main branch.
Setting it up is one of the easiest setups I know, because Vercel does all the heavy lifting and all you pretty much have to do is point Vercel to your Github repo and you are good to go.
While not working on coding stuff, I did some reading and actually read one whole book this week (rocking the Kindle!). The book I read was Take Your Shot by Robin Waite.
I liked the book a lot because it teaches business skills but in an interesting and captivating way. The book uses storytelling as a way of teaching which in my opinion is a great. You are entertained by the story but at the same time you learn a bunch. One other book that uses this kind of approach marvellously is The Wealthy Barber.
I warmly recommend reading Take your shot and Wealthy Barber if you haven't already!
That's it for this week!
