Apache Cassandra Lunch #82: Instaclustr Managed Cassandra and Next.js

In Cassandra Lunch #82, we will discuss how to set up a Instaclustr managed Cassandra on Next.js. The live recording of Cassandra Lunch, which includes a more in-depth discussion and a demo, is embedded below in case you were not able to attend live. If you would like to attend Apache Cassandra Lunch live, it is hosted every Wednesday at 12 PM EST. Register here now!

Cassandra and Next.js

Quite simply, Next.js is a React framework for developing single page Javascript applications. The benefits of this framework are numerous, both for our clients’ applications as well as for our development team. The more we, as users, interact digitally, the more impatient we become as our expectations are not met by websites and apps that fail to load within milliseconds. Technology decisions play a large part in being able to deliver highly performant, scalable, successful applications and as such, we have started using Next.js for a number of reasons; for the most part related to speed and performance. So what are the benefits specifically?

  • Server Side Rendering (SSR)
  • Automatic code splitting
  • Hot Module Replacement (HMR)
