Just Do It 2.0: How Matter Supply rebuilt the back end of a Gatsby site

Learn how Matter Supply built the second version of their Nike campaign site, learned from their mistakes, changed CMSs (twice!), switched hosting providers, and built an even better Gatsby site the second time around.

Date/Time: Thursday, February 13th at 1:30pm ET/10:30am PT

Looking back, it’s easy to see how your site or application could have been built differently. If you’re lucky, those mistakes are simple fixes, but what if you picked the wrong CMS or hosting provider?

Matter Supply was working under an extremely tight deadline when they built the first version of the Nike “Just Do It” campaign site. Gatsby’s built in performance optimizations and the power of the new tech stack made the site fast and functional despite the oversights that come with any rushed project. Nevertheless, mistakes were made - the editing experience for the content team was difficult, the site wasn’t equipped for the kind of traffic it was getting, and there were things that simply could have been better. Version 2.0 was going to be different, and Gatsby was going to make the whole process a piece of cake.

Learn how Matter Supply learned from their mistakes, changed CMSs (twice!), switched hosting providers, and built an even better Gatsby site the second time around. You’ll see how Gatsby simplifies the whole process so you can focus on getting the tools right without the headache of making new tools and data sources work with your existing front end.
