Reactive Programming: The Solution to JavaScript Fatigue

Tracy Lee

There will always be a new JavaScript framework to learn. Technology will continue to evolve and change, and developers will continue to rewrite applications. Wouldn't it be amazing if we could just copy paste 90% of our code from framework to framework?

Well, you can. Reactive programming enables just this AND the ability to future proof your code.

Not only can reactive programming help with your solutions to JavaScript fatigue, but the concepts and technology remain consistent from framework to framework.

Learn how to create a more composable application architecture and an arsenal of lego bricks with RxJS, a push based primitive and domain specific language that sits on top of JavaScript.

With its more declarative syntax and intrinsic portability, learn how to use RxJS in Angular, React, and Vue and what the future holds for for reactive primitives in TC39 and WHATWG.

Learning Backwards: Learning CS Through the Lens of React

Kyle Shevlin

So many devs join the industry from alternative pathways, and many missed out on a CS education because of it. That's awesome that people are diving in and making great stuff! Let's augment that skill and reach the next level by using what we know to learn some CS from React.

Insights from building rich animated experiences in React

Jeremias Menichelli

Have you ever wondered why good performance is so hard to achieve in heavy animated web applications? This talk is a practical retrospective on the discoveries, the pains and the journey that led me to build reliable bulletproof animations and transitions in real life production projects.

Robert DeLuca

02:00 PM

Testing Big with BigTest in React

Robert DeLuca

Full acceptance test suites that run in the browser are slow, flakey, awkward to write, and hard to maintain. This is the lore that has been handed down to JS developers for generations. But what if that was fiction? What if your UI tests were fast, robust, and a breeze to maintain?

Dr Strangelove: or how I stopped worrying and learned to love higher order functions

Tim Roberts

Functional programming has moved from academic to must-know but with Setoid and Monoid Endofunctors, the barrier to entry is high. This talk dives into the whats and whys of functional programming, and showcasing how to use it to solve real-world problems.

Vladimir Novick

Building AR Apps with React Native

Vladimir Novick

With the release of ARKit and ARCore by Apple and Google we see various Augmented reality apps created for iOS and Android. Have you ever wondered how you can create such apps in React Native? In this talk we will see how it can be done fairly easily.

Confident React

Kent C. Dodds

We want to make sure that when we ship new code, our users can use the application. The best way we've found to do that is to write automated tests that run before we deploy a new version of the app. But if our tests aren't doing exactly what the user will do, then how do we really know that things will work when users interact with our apps?

Let's rethink what it means to ship applications with confidence and what it takes to get there. With improved tools and practices, we can be more certain that what we're shipping to our users will work the way it's intended.
