Built with: Gatsby | React | CSS | GraphQL
Why build this project?
This project is intended to show value for both businesses without websites and businesses with unoptimized websites. Gatsby is blazing fast and adds a number of optimizations that are important for the modern web. This project's primary content loads in less than 2 seconds on a 3G connection, which is a great speed that keeps visitors from leaving a site in frustration. Google takes page speed into account when ranking pages for search results, so a quicker site can lead to more visitors.
This project was my first time using GraphQL and Gatsby, which I thought were both fun and useful. They're easy to pick up, make web development easier, and can lead to a better website in the end. Everyone wins!
