Awesome Next.js #5

Not many new Next.js resources were released this past week, so I thought I could highlight an awesome open source Next.js project I'm following:
For the past 7 years egghead.io was built on top of Rails. But since July 2020 they are building a new frontend with Next.js in the open (Github repo). They have come a long way since starting the rewrite and are currently Beta Testing the new site.
Recently at Next.js Conf Joel Hooks gave a talk why they chose Next.js and how it's going:
The next-egghead repo is a treasure trove to gain insights on how to build a production app with Next.js, TypeScript, Tailwind, GraphQL, Stripe and MDX among many other exciting technologies. Joel Hooks also released a next-typescript-tailwind-mdx-starter if you want to spin up a project with similar technologies to egghead-next.
Next.js resources on egghead.io
There are quite some great courses and lessons on egghead.io about Next.js.

Other Next.js resources this past week
James Perkins was livestreaming on Twitch yesterday rebuilding his site with Next.js and Sanity. And Colby Fayock will be streaming today together with Kevin Cunningham about how to source headless Wordpress content into a Next.js project Thursday Jan 14th at 1pm EST (7pm CET).
As I will be skiing with my family next week I will send the next newsletter in two weeks.
Until then have an awesome time, Andreas
