I'm launching a new course! (#18)

Despite your best guess, no, this is not a conference. React 2025 is a brand-new course showing you how to develop websites like it's 2025. We'll build and deploy a modern Jamstack application using the most popular open-source software.
Here's the twist.
In my last course, I showed how to build an application with a database, authentication, and more. But I never launched the app. This course will show the journey from zero lines of code to production for a real SaaS app. This isn't another example. At the end of the course, I'm launching the product.
I can't decide if I'm more excited about the course or the product. If this sounds interesting, check out this fancy landing page with more information. Since I use one newsletter with tags to segment the audience, you're already along for the ride 🚀
I also tried to optimize performance. The biggest improvement was optimizing my font loading strategy. By preloading & preconnecting to Google Fonts, I saw a notable page load decrease.
Note: I tried to switch to Preact, but it broke Fast Refresh. I'm guessing this will be fixed soon. Preact did decrease my page load time even further.
