What's the best SPA architecture for edge deploys?

Frontend First

Sam and Ryan talk about the architecture of Zeit's Next.js framework and the concept of edge deploys. They discuss the difference between data that must be fetched at runtime vs. data that can be cached, and how application developers might best express which parts of their apps can tolerate stale data.

Topics include:

- 6:00 - Exploring Next.js's architecture

- 22:33 - Is runtime SSR an antipattern?

- 44:04 - Are there any downsides to this architecture?

- 1:11:25 - React's single shot SSR vs. Ember's asynchronous FastBoot rendering
