Interested in learning Gatsby but not sure where to start? Want to see the latest and greatest Gatsby features used in practice? Join Obinna Ekwuno and Megan Sullivan in this Intro to Gatsby workshop as they guide you in building your own blog site from scratch!

Learn the core concepts behind using Gatsby, like querying data with GraphQL, and working with a headless CMS like Contentful or Wordpress. You’ll learn how to optimize for accessibility, routing and creating pages programmatically. Best of all you will learn how to leverage the vast Gatsby ecosystem of starters, plugins, and themes to quickly create a fast, secure, scalable website -- and then how to deploy your site to live hosting for free, in minutes. This workshop is sponsored by Contentstack.
