Decoupled sitebuilding with GraphQL and Next.js

Decoupled CMS implementations has been a buzz word for some years now. But still building a decoupled site continues to have a high overhead because of the setup needed and the nature of RESTful APIs.

Meanwhile the JavaScript world and the web platform in general have taken great leaps. In this talk we discover how using Next.js, a JavaScript framework, and GraphQL, a Query Language for APIs, to build decoupled websites using any CMS that supports GraphQL.

Using this combination reduces time spent on boilerplate code, creating Server Side Rendered (SSR) views for maximum SEO impact as well as a good developer experience.
