On this episode of React Wednesdays we welcomed Brandon Bayer (@flybayer), creator of Blitz.js.
Blitz.js is a full-stack framework that’s built on top of Next.js, and inspired by full-stack frameworks like Ruby on Rails. This was pretty exciting as full-stack frameworks have been growing like crazy in the React world lately.
Brandon was awesome and demoed Blitz.js for us, and answered our questions of why you should use Blitz.js over just using Next, and where Blitz.js got its name from.
