Introduction to BlitzJS toolkit
By Simon Knott
Hi! I’m Simon, and in this talk I will be introducing you to the new Blitz.js 2.0. Just like before, Blitz.js helps you build fullstack applications on top of Next.js. It makes your life easier with its Zero-API data layer, easy authentication & authorization, type-safe database access through Prisma, sensible conventions, and an amazing community. After the talk, you‘ll have a good idea of what Blitz‘s strengths are, how it helps you & your project, and when you should use it.
