Scaling WordPress with Next.js

Colby Fayock

When: July 15 @3:20pmET
Room: Platform.sh

When it comes to Content Management Systems (CMS), WordPress is still king. But it’s not the most scalable of solutions and it can be tough working on custom solutions with it as a developer.

WordPress however is still a compelling solution. It has a familiar publishing experience for technical and non-technical people alike with a long history of developers supporting the ecosystem with plugins and development support.

How does WordPress fit in with a world full of modern CMS solutions and how can we still leverage it to build scalable websites with Next.js?

We’ll walk through how we can take advantage of Next.js, utilizing its APIs, to develop a fully static WordPress website. We’ll walk through a Next.js concept Starter and how I was able to bring some of the best parts of WordPress to the static web.
