We have a pretty simple goal at Contentful: to make your life easier as a developer. While we would like to hand-deliver every one of you a cheeseburger and fries, and maybe throw in a shoulder massage –– computer neck, anyone?–– we're not quite able to do so.
This course just might be the equivalent.
I’ve created a straight-to-the-point guide to getting started with Contentful, Gatsby and Netifly, delivered in a way that can have you creating your own web apps within hours. The course will teach you how to build a JAMstack application, essentially removing the hassle of building out a backend. You’ll be able to focus on what really matters: the content.
I decided to host this course on egghead. While it does require a subscription, I think it’s a great resource for developers. Egghead is a platform for web development professionals and open source contributors with information-dense video courses.
What differentiates egghead from other learning platforms is their fluff-free courses. If you’re not into lengthy intros or annoying tangents, egghead offers just what you need to know, and nothing you don’t.
From GraphQL to React, egghead only deals with the best tools on the industry too. You won’t find anything irrelevant or past its prime.
In this course, you’ll learn how to build and deploy your own static Gatsby site that pulls external data from Contentful and then deploys to the web with Netlify. You’ll have all the knowledge you need to build a blog, marketing site, or portfolio with Gatsby. Just add the content.
You’ll learn how to:
Integrate Contentful with Gatsby
Deploy a static site with Netlify
create pages dynamically with Contentful data
Write your migration script
Render rich text
I recommend having basic knowledge of React and GraphQL –– that’s it!
