    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)

    I love that this is your first LNUG @nano-monkey - in our defence… normally less tech issues
    Clare Lindley
    @clare-lindley
    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

    hello @/all - it’s the 4th Wednesday of the month next week - we are planning to meet remotely again. Let me know if you have a lightning talk, or longer to contribute. @chucksellick - fancy giving a lightning talk on how you built the “Saturday Night Lockdown” site?
    Hew Ingram
    @hewIngram
    That would be AWESOME

    @admataz thanks again for the shoutout in the podcast mate, also nicely hosted @simonmcmanus I will make sure that one of our Engineers at Unmind get's in touch with their topic for the 4th as we should be able to have someone share some insights into life at Unmind and our tech

    @admataz
    @/all - I’m calling off the remote meetup this Wednesday - things haven’t come together for it - we will plan something and resume LNUG soon - meanwhile do keep the conversation going here and on twitter.
