Learn NextJS 13 by Building a Modern Full-Stack OpenAI Chatbot

Let’s become amazing web devs together! In this single video, we’ll build a super useful customer support chatbot using OpenAI’s ChatGPT. It’s an awesome portfolio piece to have because it shows your ability to create interactive web apps that solve real-world problems.

The best features:
