My goal is to help you work faster.
I must speak and teach until I hear 10 people say, "That thing you taught me? I used it! And it saved me time!"

As step 1 (of 3) of my next project, I’ll set up Sanity CMS instead of markdown as a data source for the “

Despite thorough documentation and great starter packs, the barrier to entry with the Gatsby SSG still feels a bit high for novice web developers who’d merely like to explore if it’s right for them.
I aim to lower the bar by bringing you along as I learn it myself.
