Published first mini-course on fullstack dev

Stephen Jensen @stephenjensen

This was a big week. Due to the popularity of the previous Prisma 2 post, I decided to make an entire full-stack web app that uses Next.js on the frontend and Prisma and express on the backend. I also built all of it in docker containers to make it easier to develop and deploy.

This was my first shot at a mini-course that I hope to expand into an entire paid course. It involved about 2 hours of video and an entire GitHub repository. https://github.com/CaptainChemist/blog-prisma2

I was pretty overwhelmed by the response- as of mid-September, these posts have been viewed over 2000 times on dev.to and I got a lot of great feedback from people who found it on youtube and requested that I create a more full-length course.
