Scaling Next.js with WordPress to a million developers (OISR + MDX + WP)

WordPress is notoriously hard to use as headless CMS (it was never built that way, I'd know, I spent 16 years contributing to its core software). Limited functionality is headless. MDX was a good solution for a while, but when content scales and your team grows, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ meh, no thanks.

With Next.js On-demand ISR, I have finally figured out how to glue WordPress x Next.js: the best of both worlds. That's what you'll learn in this talk. ⚠

Caution: This is a powerful duo. The new workflow to get the most out of your current WordPress stack and Next.js.
