About This Course

This course offers a comprehensive guide to using Gatsby.js with WordPress as a headless CMS, focusing on creating a real-world client front-end. It's designed for intermediate developers familiar with JavaScript and React, providing a fast-paced, project-oriented approach to learning Gatsby fundamentals. The course covers essential topics such as setting up a project from scratch with Gatsby CLI, integrating WordPress as a headless CMS, using GraphQL, and implementing React Hooks.

Throughout the course, you'll build a fully functional website based on a real client project, learning how to create blog archives, hero sections, and dynamic content. The instructor emphasizes practical, hands-on learning, guiding you through the process of connecting an existing WordPress site to Gatsby and using it as a headless CMS. While the course doesn't teach WordPress backend development or React basics, it provides an excellent opportunity to apply and expand your existing knowledge in a real-world context.

By the end of the course, you'll have gained valuable experience in creating high-performance, secure websites using Gatsby's static site generation capabilities combined with WordPress's content management features. You'll also learn how to publish your project to Gatsby Cloud with WebHooks and use the gatsby-source-wordpress plugin. This course is ideal for developers looking to enhance their skills in modern web development techniques and create faster, more flexible websites using headless WordPress architecture.
