New Book - Nigel's Intranet Adventure

Available to pre-order now!

Published: Aug 29, 2020 by C.S. Rhymes

My new book, “Nigel’s Intranet Adventure” is now available to pre-order on Amazon Kindle and will be released on 7th September 2020.

This is the first fiction book I have released that I have been working on for a few years and I am proud to finally make it available.

Nigel worked in an office for a large sales company, his desk in the corner, out of the way of the busy hustle and bustle of the sales and marketing teams. His official job title was ‘Intranet Coordinator’, but most people in the office didn’t know what his job title was or what he actually did, just seeing him as the IT geek that sat in the corner. To be honest, Nigel didn’t know what his job was either…

Follow Nigel on an adventure that would change his life forever, all triggered by a chance encounter leading to a new friendship and a journey of technological wonder.

Next.js offers a feature called Incremental Static Regeneration (ISR) that allows you to generate a static page when the page is first visited, rather than generating a static copy at build time. This is a really handy feature as it allows you to reduce your build time, but still benefit from having a cache of a page generated so future visitors will have a faster response time.
