Wunderpedia keeps on expanding!

Wunderpedia is our place for sharing knowledge on matters close to our hearts. Read our latest Wunderpedia articles to learn more about the React-based web application framework Next.js, and get to know the web analytics platform that enables easy cookieless tracking, Matomo Analytics.

Back in the turn of 2019 and 2020, we started building up our own encyclopedia-like place for knowledge-sharing, Wunderpedia. We began by collecting a comprehensive Accessibility-section, but now the digital library consists of 48 pages of free content, accessible to everyone.

The latest two topics added to Wunderpedia are about tools close to our heart – frontend developer’s dear friend, Next.js, and one of the best (if not the best) tools for cookieless tracking, Matomo Analytics.

Next.js allows creating search engine optimized sites with zero configuration

Not many things in web development move forward so rapidly than frontend development. New technologies and features are introduced frequently, but recently Next.js has been clawing its way to the top.

Next.js is a React-based, open-source web application framework, and its beauty lies in simplifying server-side rendering and, by that way, enabling faster first-contentful paint, thus SEO-friendlier web services. It is also a fantastic duo for Drupal in decoupled solutions due to its powerful API and backend agnostic nature.

Perhaps you have already noticed our fancy to work together with Drupal and Next.js, especially in decoupled solutions? If the topic tickles your fancy as well, but you missed the workshop Powering Next.js with Drupal we hosted at React Finland 2021, the recording is still available! You can order it here.

Read the Wunderpedia article to discover why we often choose Next.js over other React frameworks.

Matomo Analytics – the analytics platform for cookieless tracking

A web analytics platform that is open-source and allows for waving goodbye to cookie banners? Yes, please!

There has been a lot going on regarding user data: the Finnish authorities updated the cookie guideline, and storing analytics data with Google Analytics has been in the headlines. If all this causes you gray hair and confusion, there is a possibility to go entirely cookieless and even host the analytics data yourself if wanted – the answer you’re looking for is Matomo Analytics.

Matomo Analytics is a versatile tool which’s features expand its use beyond the proprietary alternatives, and it can even help you empower your organization’s values through actions.

In our newest Wunderpedia article, we opened up Matomo’s key features, how cookieless analytics affects the way of doing web analytics, to whom Matomo suits and to whom not, and lastly, how Matomo and Google Analytics compare with each other.

Wunderpedia opens not only Wunder’s tech choices but also our culture

After starting Wunderpedia with an extensive accessibility section, it has slowly but steadily grown to cover some of our tech & tool choices in addition to Next.js and Matomo, like Drupal and React.

The latest section in Wunderpedia is about us: our culture and ways of working. Under Wunderway, you can now find more information about our salary model and employee benefits, the Hug system, and how we actively build a psychologically safe work environment.

Wunderpedia is a continuously developed, agile way of creating an encyclopedia of matters close to Wunder. If you’d have a topic on your mind that you’d wish us to open up in Wunderpedia, let us know by contacting us!

We wish you an inspiring journey to the heart of Wunder and hope you enjoy getting to know us better through Wunderpedia!
