This talk explores the intersection of Next.js, React Query, and the Backend for Frontend (BFF) design pattern, three vital elements pieces that help solve the puzzle of performant and scalable data fetching. Throughout the talk, real-world examples will be used to provide a practical understanding of these topics.


I come from a Bootcamp and self-taught background, having contributed to several open-source projects in my spare time. My passion for technology extends beyond coding; I love consulting on web projects and have grown my expertise in web architectures and frontend codebases. Additionally, my experience includes managing large-scale software teams, which has been a significant part of my career development.
Having worked in many industries, including Connected TV, Fintech, and Fitness, I've found my niche in start-ups. The ownership, opportunities, and exposure that come with early-stage companies have always resonated with me, driving my passion and commitment to the tech industry.
Some of my previous work has revolved around building large-scale full-stack applications for notable companies like Fiit, Discovery, GCN, Eurosport, and Navro (formerly Paytrix), serving millions of users globally. This experience has not only honed my technical skills but also deepened my understanding of the importance of user-centric design and performance in software development.
Over time, I've specialized in frontend technologies, particularly React and NextJs. My focus has been on creating user-centric, performant, and maintainable applications that meet and exceed not only user expectations but developers too. My journey through the tech landscape continues to be driven by my dedication to innovation, efficiency, and the endless possibilities of web development.
