When thinking about NextJS and now you need to remember some keywords:

Static Site, Serverless, Code Splitting.

These are the Super Powers you will get. Building these using Webpack or other frameworks can eat up a whole lot of your time.

Static sites are a lot faster than dynamic sites but harder to change. NextJS will only build your site statically while the rest can be dynamic if you want. Its pretty amazing in terms of speed.

You know when a website takes a while to load and you see a big white screen for a while. Agh :( its horrible.

This post blew up on DEV in 2020:

🚀⚙️ JavaScript Visualized: the JavaScript Engine

As JavaScript devs, we usually don't have to deal with compilers ourselves. However, it's definitely good to know the basics of the JavaScript engine and see how it handles our human-friendly JS code, and turns it into something machines understand! 🥳

Happy coding!
