Catherine Larcheveque and Lorenzo Guevara’s tech talk provides an introduction to server side rendering. They talk about what server side rendering is, then dive deep into how websites and browsers actually work, such as loading HTML/CSS, fetching any linked JS, executing that JS and rendering to the page.
Catherine and Lorenzo dive into front-end optimization metrics such as Time to first byte, time to first paint, time to contentful paint, and time to interactive to get the audience thinking about how client-side rendering impacts performance.
They also go into client side rendering step by step, server side rendering with react and next.js, and then static site generators with gatsby and CDNs.
