Hello, everyone. My name is Marcelo app Pastorino, and I want to welcome you to my course, GatsbyJs: The Big Picture. I am a software developer, and I am here today to tell you all about GatsbyJS, the popular React‑based open source framework that allows us to create modern static sites and apps. With Gatsby, you can create apps that are really fast, secure, scale very well, and are backed by an awesome set of technologies, JavaScript, React, GraphQL, and webpack. In this course, we are going to discover some of the details behind this cool technology and determine whether or not GatsbyJS is the right choice for our next project. Some of the major topics that we will cover include understanding what the JAMStack framework is and how it relates to Gatsby, understanding GatsbyJS itself, the structure behind Gatsby sites, it's code, and data access capabilities. And last but not least, understanding the awesome GatsbyJS ecosystem, including Gatsby starter templates, themes, and plugins. By the end of this course, you will have a clear understanding of GatsbyJS and everything it has to offer and be able to determine if GatsbyJS is the right choice for your next site. From here, you should feel comfortable taking other courses in the GatsbyJS learning path. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about Gatsby with the GatsbyJS: The Big Picture course, right here at Pluralsight.
