A List of Awesome Resources For Learning GatsbyJS

#1 GatsbyJS.org

Official Gatsby Website

What I really like about using Gatsby is that it has perfect documentation. This is usually the first place where I go when I need to do something I’ve never done before. It is written in a clear and understandable manner and has strategically placed links to all related articles.

When visiting gatsbyjs.org for the first time it makes sense to start with the excellent tutorials section, then move on to the documentation, and then check out API docs.

#2 Blog LekoArts

Learn With Jason is an awesome internet show where random people teach a guy with the beard how to code things🎓😀.

Speaking seriously, Jason’s show has a number of great series where he pair-programs with someone from the community or tries to tackle some interesting problem with Gatsby, live on air. Totally recommend checking out this series if you’re more of a visual learner and prefer watching videos instead of reading the docs.

Sometimes, when I feel stuck and no amount of Googling can remedy the situation I ask for help in the Gatsby discord chat. Someone from the community will always look at your question and eventually you’ll figure out the solution. That’s why I love working with Gatsby, you never feel alone.

#7 Gatsby Spectrum Community

Egghead.io has a ton of Gatsby lessons and tutorials. How to build a theme, work with gatsby-image, deploy your site to Netlify - you can pretty much find anything here. You’ll need a subscription to access courses and lessons, track your progress and view code.

#9 The Great Gatsby Bootcamp

Andrew Mead Gatsby Course

This is pretty much the first video that popped up for me when I searched Gatsby on YouTube, and for a good reason. This introductory course gives you an overall idea of what Gatsby is and how you can create a markdown blog with it.

It covers things like how to approach styling, working with markdown files, and finally, how to deploy your site to Netlify.

Totally recommend this course for beginners.

#10 Gatsby Pinterest Board

Here you’ll find a collection of various articles that the community creates. There’s not a whole lot of content at the moment, but the board will be updated with new materials every week, so, if you have a Pinterest account, feel free to follow this board.

Final Thoughts

Of course, this is by no means a full list of resources, only those that I’ve managed to find. So, I decided to share this for someone new, who is only discovering this awesome platform. If you know some other resource that is worth checking out - send it to me and I’ll gladly add it to the list.

Cheers!
