JavaScript frameworks
web development

Astro is a full stack JavaScript framework along the lines of Next.js. It allows you to build web applications using a mixture of static generation (SSG) and server-side rendering (SSR). Rather than being dependent on React, Astro is framework-agnostic. You can use components from any framework including React, Vue, Svelte and more, or even mix and match. Plus, it uses an islands architecture to deliver the minimum necessary JavaScript to the client for your application. This session will go into detail about what Astro is and why you should use it. We'll also walk through step by step how to build your first site using Astro.


You should be comfortable in JavaScript.
