Ship Less JavaScript with Astro

Learn how to create performant Jamstack sites with this amazing static site generator

Astro is a relatively new static site generator (at the time of recording this course they are still in beta), however it does bring a fresh addition to the list of existing tools. One of its core promises is to ship less JavaScript, and boy, do they deliver on that! Throughout this course we'll be building an application that highlights the key features of Astro.

One important features of this modern SSG is to allow developers to import existing components from other, popular frontend frameworks. Yes, you read that right. You can use an existing React or a Vue (or Svelte, Preact and others) component within your Astro project! As part of the course you will also become familiar with the "Islands Architecture" - a new way of thinking about designing and developing a web application - and Astro is truly spearheading this architectural design by adding partial hydration to it's list of amazing features, out of the box.

By completing this course you will learn the basics of Astro, learn about it's component system, it's routing mechanisms and last but not least about it's superior Markdown support. The final project that we are building will be deployed to Cloudflare Pages which is an exciting development from Cloudflare to capture the attention of Jamstack developers.
