Build Awesome Websites

Building modern websites is tough. Preloading, routing, compression, critical CSS, caching, scaling and bundlers all make for blazing fast websites, but extra development and tooling get in the way.

Gatsby is a React.js framework that does it all for you. This course will teach you how to build your websites and let Gatsby take care of all the Hard Stuffβ„’.

What Will You Build?

Together we build a website for a local pizza joint called Slick's Slices. The site includes everything you'd run into in building a website today and is meant to be a nice copy/paste reference for the sites you build.

Some of the topics we touch upon are:

  • Multiple Data Types
  • Custom Fields
  • Progressive Images
  • Relational Data
  • Scoped CSS
  • Sourcing Data from a REST API
  • Sourcing Data from a CMS
  • Tags + Filtering
  • Reusable Components
  • Dynamically Generated pages
  • Pagination
  • Dynamic Order Form
  • Client side Fetching
  • Cross Page State Management
  • SEO + Meta Tags
  • Emailing of Order
  • Building
  • Deployment & Hosting

For a full list of all topics covered, see below at the video list!

In this course we also write all the CSS to style the website.

We will learn fun things like CSS Variables, Layouts with Grid (and sub-grid!), Flexbox, clamp(), @supports queries, transforms, scoping CSS, responsive design and so much more!

I've recorded it in such a way that the CSS videos are skippable, if you rather not learn some CSS along the way.

Don't Forget the CSS!

This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to build modern websites. Whether you want to whip up a brand new personal website, or try out some new tech with your team, you'll learn a ton in this course.

These Kinds of People

  • Existing React developers - apply your existing skill set and pick up Gatsby quickly
  • WordPress / Drupal Devs - Bring your existing backend and use Gatsby for the front end.
  • Students - Build your personal portfolio website with Gatsby
  • Agency Devs - Agencies love Gatsby because it's quick to build, easy to share code between projects and doesn't require babysitting once it's built because it's compiles to HTML, CSS and JS.
  • Marketers - SEO friendly, easy to host, great for microsites.
  • Designers - Know a bit of CSS and JS? Bring your designs to life with Gatsby.
  • New Developers - Gatsby and React.js are currently some of the best skills to have on your resume
  • Humans - I've run out of categories, what I'm trying to say here is that you should take the course!

With These Skills

You should be comfortable with writing JavaScript - take my Beginner JavaScript course if you want to get a solid foundation first.

Some basic React skills – writing JSX and components - are good, but you'll be able to pick it up as we go.

Some of the more advanced React stuff - custom hooks, state management, context - is taught as part of this course so you'll learn with us!

All the code for the course is open source and posted on Github.

Not sure if it's for you? Decided to become a heavy diesel mechanic instead?

As always, give it a shot! 100% money back or swap it for another course of mine if you don't think it's a good fit. No hard feelings!

I bet you have so many questions!

What's the difference between React and Gatsby?

Technically, React is a library and Gatsby is a framework. What's the difference?

With React you take data, put it in components and React knows how and when to render and update that to the page. It's really good at doing just that, but leaves the rest of the tech stack up to you.

Then Gatsby comes along and adds lots of features that React doesn't have β€” routing URLS, preloading pages, compressing + lazy loading images, sourcing all your data from the CMS + so much more.

Do these videos expire? Is this a monthly cost?

Nope and nope. Pay once, have them forever. Updates are also free.

Why didn't you use with instead?! WAY BETTER! YOU DONT KNOW ANYTHING

18,240 different combos! I think Gatsby and its huge plugin ecosystem is one of the best choices for building a fast modern site. If you'd like to learn Next.js instead, that is available over at my Advanced React course.

As for Sanity - I tried many different headless CMS options and I landed on Sanity because it's the perfect mix of ease-of-use paired with the ability to customize almost anything you want.

There are certainly other great options for a headless CMS - WordPress, Keystone, Strapi, and Prismic are a few I like myself. This course shows you how to source data into Gatsby. So switching to another headless CMS is usually as easy as swapping out the source plugin! I encourage you to try a few different ones out yourself!

What is a headless CMS? Sanity?! Sounds Spooky!

We cover this in depth in the course, but a CMS is the place where you (or a client!) login to add/update/delete data that will be on your website. It's called "Headless" because the actual creation or "theming" of your website isn't part of the CMS like a traditional CMS would be.

The CMS simply spits out data, and then we use another framework to slurp up that data and display it.

What about tools? Webpack? Babel? Parcel?

Thankfully all the build tooling is built into Gatsby. It does it all for us. Because of that the build + deploy videos are surprisingly short!

Do you provide a certificate of completion?

Sure do! In your course dashboard you can download an official certificate of completion that can be used to be reimbursed by your employer or land that dream job you are applying for.

Can I put the code on GitHub? Can I put this app in my portfolio? Can I blog about this?

Absolutely - I just ask that you don't create your own course teaching with this app. Otherwise, go nuts! You can credit my course if you like, but it's not required as you might be using this website to get a job :)

What other courses do you have?

I've got a bunch of free and premium web development courses β€” check out the whole listing over at

I lost, deleted or never got my welcome email! What do I do?

Log into your account, or create an account with the same email you used to buy the series.

What format are the videos? How do I watch them?

Once you buy a package, you will be mailed access to your account dashboard where you can stream all the videos. Buyers of the Master Package will also be able to download them for off-line viewing. All the videos were professionally recorded at 4k with top quality audio β€” no pops, echoes, chair squeaks, breathing or gross mouth sounds here! The downloaded versions are in 1080p HD.

What if I'm not thrilled?

I want to make sure you get real value out of this so I only want your money if you are happy with the product! If you aren't satisfied, please send an email to with a copy of your welcome email and I will refund you.

Do you offer a student discount?

Absolutely! Fill out this form with some proof that you are a student and I'll send you a discount code. This applies to anyone in any type of schooling, including evening classes and coding bootcamps!

If you have received a student discount for a previous product, it's the same code πŸ˜‰.

What theme do you use? What is that font? What terminal do you use? What type of oil goes in your car?

I've detailed my entire setup over here, feel free to tweet me with any more questions you have about setting things up.

I have a really good joke about "The Great Gatsby" to tell you

I've never seen it! Sorry!

I have another question!
