Powering Code Reuse with Context and Render Props

Forbes Lindesay

Threads, UK

React's context API has always been labelled as experimental, but from the advent of Redux it has been used in all the most exciting react libraries. It's about to become a stabilised feature so now is the perfect time to learn the new context API.
Combining the context API and render props lets gives you unprecedented power to cleanly reuse code across components. It even plays well with TypeScript and Flow. This talk will explain how context and render props work and give you some ideas of how to use them to simplify your own code.

Starter Kit: GraphQL Boilerplates

Manjula Dube

Marley Spoon, Germany

At some point when you often start with GraphQL you often think how do I even start integrating to my frontend tech stack with GraphQL. The talk is going to be all about explaining a boilerplate available from basic to advanced level. This is one of the open source project I am working with Graphcool team as an open source developer.

Structure Your App's Story With Sagas and Selectors

Rebecca Hill

Usabilla, The Netherlands

As apps begin to scale, many developers find themselves asking the question - but where does all the hard stuff go? The complicated data manipulation, the validation, the process flow of our apps. In other words, the business logic. If React is designed for the view layer, and we’re using Redux or something similar for the state, then where does the business logic go? This talk looks at the different options and tries to answer that question.

Navigating the hype-driven frontend development world without going insane

Kitze

ReactAcademy, Macedonia

The obsession to always move on to the latest and greatest, and the fear of missing out while working with something that's older than a few months is currently dominating the dev world.
Do you have enough time to learn the latest version of your favourite library or framework? Will this leave enough time if you need to learn something new? Should you stick with what you know? Should you forget about what you are using and start learning something new? What are other front-end developers using? Should you follow the crowd? This is a problem that everyone struggles with. So many decisions to make, but Kitze will help you find the answers.

Feature Driven Architecture

Oleg Isonen

The Lonely and Dark Road to Styling in React

Sara Vieira

YLDio, Europe

CSS is hard !I made a living out of it being hard but when React was introduced we had a whole new level of fighting over CSS. There are so many ways to approach it and so many tradeoffs one can do when choosing the better approach that a talk that will go over these options is more than necessary. Let's walk this road thogheter and I promise it will all be fine and you will leave with an ideia of type of styling is better for each project. Hint: There is no perfect way...

Optimizing the Critical Rendering Path in React

Alex Moldovan

Fortech, Romania

One of the crucial elements of performance is to ship relevant content to your users as soon as possible. But in modern web applications, figuring out what to ship and what to prioritize can be hard. Framework driven applications have the big disadvantage of being pretty heavy for the initial load. We will start from understanding how the browser works, then we will explain what the critical rendering path is and how we can optimize it. Expect a talk full of valuable resources and ideas that one can use to improve the performance of a modern web application, with a case study on a React powered application.

Using SVG in React Native

Ori Harel

Capriza, Israel

Vector graphics is in fact the best way to provide great visualization and interaction combined. It exist on all platforms in some way or form, so it's just natural to use it in React Native. In this talk, I'll show you how I integrated the use of SVG with the opinionated component and state system of React, but in the same time keeping things highly performant when interacting with the UI thread - a topic a lot of developers are struggling with.
