About the Next.js test

Hiring a great Next.js developer will lead to your web applications giving a great user experience due to their fast load times and great search engine optimization (SEO). A skilled Next.js developer can also optimize your server-side rendering, implement caching and revalidation, and improve your application’s scalability, as well as streamline the development process and reduce project timelines, resulting in faster time-to-market and cost savings. Additionally, they can create custom solutions that meet specific business needs and integrate well with existing systems.

This Next.js test evaluates a candidate's ability to develop, configure, style, and optimize Next.js applications for production. It covers a range of skills, including rendering and data fetching, static-site generation, server-side and client-side rendering, caching and revalidation, layout design, code splitting, and search engine optimization.

The test also assesses candidates' ability to customize Next.js applications and implement server and client components, among other advanced concepts. Overall, the test evaluates a candidate's proficiency in Next.js development and their ability to deliver high-performance, scalable, and optimized applications.

This screening test will help you identify Next.js developers who possess these skills and can translate them into tangible business results. Candidates who perform well on this test will be able to develop efficient and optimized Next.js applications with seamless navigation and enhanced user experience, ultimately resulting in a better experience for your customers and an increase in your revenue.

Review from G2

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
