About this Post

Tesla's Frontend Meetup Series was proud to host Kent C. Dodds to talk about Remix, a framework for building better websites.


In our latest installment of the Tesla Frontend Meetup Series, we were joined by Kent C. Dodds, a software engineer, educator, author, speaker... an all-around awesome person.

Kent spent an hour with us talking about Remix, an open source, React framework for building better websites. He shared his experience with Remix, how it works, and how it can help us โ€” and you! โ€” build "slick and resilient user experiences".

I was shocked to learn today that my @remix_run Jokes tutorial run-through of 6 hours (basically a workshop) has 44k views! ๐Ÿ’ฟ ๐Ÿคฏ

Remix, though relatively young, is already a favorite amongst developers, just check out the State of Frontend 2022 Survey.

Remix is a full stack web framework that lets you focus on the user interface and work back through web standards to deliver a fast. Slick, and resilient user experience. People are gonna love using vour stuff

There are many frameworks available for building websites. Why Remix? Why not Next.js? Why not Gatsby? Why not SvelteKit? Why not VuePress? Why not...?

Here's a blog post doing a comparison of Remix vs Next.js, by Ryan Florence, co-founder of Remix. Take Remix for a spin and decide for yourself. In addition to being great for developers, Kent, Ryan, and the rest of the Remix team have built a framework that is designed with Web standards and accessibility in mind.

Literally the *only* reason we made the Next vs Remix post is explained at the top of the post (followed by us gushing over how great we think the team over at Vercel is). We didn't want to talk about Next.js, but everyone asked about it.

The Remix team and the Next.js team are raising the bar and making web development more accessible, scalable, and user-friendly. I'm all for it.

I'm personally looking forward to exploring Remix more in the future, perhaps even creating and offering a Remix starter template to the Tesla developer community alongside the Next.js template I already help maintain.

It was great to hang out with you and hear more about Remix, Kent - we hope you enjoyed the meetup as much as we did! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ
