In this article, we’ll learn how to build a Full-stack application using Next.js, Prisma, Postgres, and Fastify. We will build an attendance management demo application that manages employees’ attendance. The flow of the app is simple: an administrative user logs in, creates an attendance sheet for the day, then every employee signs in and out of the attendance sheet.
What Is Next.js?
Next.js is a flexible React framework that gives you building blocks to create fast web applications. It is often called the full-stack React framework as it makes it possible to have both frontend and backend applications on the same codebase doing so with serverless functions.
