Get Ready for #100DaysOfGatsby — Gatsby’s Guided Coding Challenge for 2021

If you’re looking for a fun way to explore how to build blazing fast websites with Gatsby, our #100DaysOfGatsby challenge is for you!

This “100 Days” challenge kicks off on January 1st — the perfect way to jump start the new year learning some new skills with a Gatsby project.

After all, Udemy named Gatsby the #1 emerging tech skill to learn. And Stack Overflow’s survey of nearly 65,000 developers found that Gatsby is one of the most loved and one of the most wanted web frameworks.

Why all of the love and interest? We think it’s because using Gatsby doesn’t just give you a highly performant website. Learning the framework can also help you master React, Node.js, GraphQL, and serverless website architectures. During the original #100DaysOfGatsby challenge we saw thousands of developers learn rapidly, connect with others, have fun, and even get hired!

If you’ve used Gatsby in the past, #100DaysOfGatsby is a great way to get hands-on with the new features we’ve launched recently — all of them aimed at making the experience of starting and scaling a Gatsby site much faster and easier.


Get started with Challenge 1

Experienced React Developer?
