Remix and Strapi go together like git merges and zero conflicts - a rare yet delightful occurrence in the world of web development.

We just published a full course on the YouTube channel that will teach you to create full stack apps with Remix and Strapi. Paul Bratslavsky created this course. Paul is an experienced developer and excellent instructor.

Before diving into the course, it's essential to understand the tools at its core. Remix is a modern React framework that focuses on delivering smooth, user-friendly front-end interfaces. It leverages React's capabilities to enhance web application performance and developer experience. On the other hand, Strapi is a flexible, open-source Headless Content Management System (CMS) that simplifies content management and delivery. Its headless nature allows for more creative freedom in front-end development, making it a perfect match with Remix.

The course is structured to walk learners through both the basics and advanced aspects of using Remix and Strapi in application development. It begins with setting up the project environment and provides an overview of the necessary tools and technologies. From there, it delves into key concepts such as creating and managing routes in Remix, linking CSS for styling, and setting up detailed pages for user interaction.

As the course progresses, it covers more complex topics, including dynamic route creation, data loading techniques, and integrating Strapi as the headless CMS. This integration is crucial for efficient content management and delivery, and learners will gain hands-on experience in setting up and utilizing Strapi within their applications.

The course also emphasizes practical skills like form validation using Zod, implementing programmatic navigation, error handling, and enhancing functionality with features like contact favorites and search capabilities. Towards the end, learners will explore the use of various Remix hooks for form submission and state management, and how to handle errors effectively in a Remix application.
