    I just stumbled on http://proseccojs.com/ on https://lnug.org/related-meetups.html and noticed the Heroku app behind doesn't exist anymore and Prosecco.js's twitter account seems inactive so I'm not sure the whole thing died or not.

    Hi,

    I've been attending LNUG for the past few months and really enjoying the meetups - thank you to the organisers.

    I wanted to learn some more about Node & the London Node network as I was looking to use Node to develop a PWA for a new non profit. I'm not a developer, but I've had previous business & non profit projects with Ruby on Rails, and now Node seems a more attractive option.

    Having discussed the new project with an old trusted/experienced Rails developer he favours getting the project started using serverless Next.js on Zeit. From what I've read, Next seems pretty good...

    I want the tech stack to be right from the start, and I'm slightly unsure on the implications of using Next. While not wanting to be negative, I don't currently understand what are the disadvantages might be for utilising Next?

    Just to repeat my earlier statement 'I'm not a developer' so I don't understand complex code features. I'm just trying to understand implications of using Next.js or not using it. How would Next limit us?

    I know this is a Node.js community, I'm asking here as I know some of you, and I figure I may get a more balanced view than if I ask these questions in a Next.js community.

    Thank you

    Matt

    As a Node dev since 0.4, if you're just starting out I would try and keep things as simple as possible.
    And to me that says "static pages and perhaps some front end js" - delving into PWA, serverless, front-end frameworks and PaaS solutions and build pipelines is a TON of extra complexity that you simply don't need (yet).

    hi object Object, thanks for your comments. Within a very short period the rails (& JS) developer stood up a basic PWA which I enjoyed installing on a device without going through an app store. While I'm open to be further dissuaded, currently the Next.js & PWA functionality looks incredibly attractive.
    I'll discuss the comments you've made.

    If anyone can comment anything further that would be great, thank you

    In light of your reply I question the validity of the assertion "I am not a developer".

    Nice!

    I'm wondering what genres - is it 5 x DnB DJs? (Today the page just has the countdown)

    Ah lol @hewIngram I've been to a few in London but I was always too busy to go consistently! It's ironic that now we are all remote, I can make it once more! :D
