Presenting Without Sharing My Screen
You Belong Here
This is a pivotal time for the fight against systemic racism and injustice in the US. It has also sparked a lot of difficult reflection and realizations from those of us who would be allies: the understanding that we all own a piece of this. That we can, and we must, do better. At Gatsby we have been asking ourselves some hard questions about how we need to change so we can become better allies.

Gatsby Recipes: What’s All the Fuss About?
Gatsby Recipes were introduced just last month, as a new tool to automate common site building tasks. A Gatsby Recipe is a kind of task runner that can be authored in MDX and then executed from the command line using the Gatsby CLI. Gatsby now ships with a dozen or so default Recipes, and our amazing community has been busy coming up with more useful contributions! React developer Paul Scanlon discussed his process behind making his first two Recipes, and then walks through how to write your own.
