Day #22 - Deploy the new frontend app

October 08, 2020

Finally it's the day to publish the new Next.js website/app (yeah it's still a single project)!

Vercel's workflow is amazing! The DX flow to create and publish your Next.js project is closely connected to the developer's needs!

There are many similarities with Netlify (obviously) but there was one thing that amazed me the most. How quick and instant were all the status updates.

Also, The building time is x2 less than Netlify's.

But...

I did a great fail today. I forgot about the need of DNS configuration on Namecheap. The result? MagicPattern had 30-minute downtime. A small to price to pay for better SEO...
