From Zero to App: A React Workshop

You’ve heard about it. Maybe you even started looking at it, but you abandoned when you saw that you needed to re-learn all you thought you knew about JS. When starting to do your first steps in React, the learning curve can seem really steep. In this workshop, the attendees will be guided through the fundamental concepts behind React and will learn how to build a full application using those technologies. Covering packaging with webpack, routing, form manipulation and authentication, this workshop will get the attendees up to speed with this trendy framework that React is.

Introduction to Typescript

JavaScript is the language that enables all of the dynamic aspects of the web, such as real time updates, notifications, as well as more advanced features in the browser. TypeScript, a superset of JavaScript, enables great tooling and better structuring of large JavaScript applications.

In this session, we will cover the next big thing in modern web development: Typescript, which brings types, decorators and many more features on top of what JavaScript already does.

Managing state in React

Should I use local or global state to manage my components. Do I need actions and reducers for my menus? What about forms? Should I be using providers instead? If you have asked yourself any of these questions, you're not alone. Managing state in an application is no longer a simple task. Join us as we look at the three popular ways to manage state, with component state, providers, and through Redux. We'll take a look at the advantages of each method and when you may want to use them.

Javascript / Not Javascript

If you have been using Typescript for a while you may have missed out on some of the new features in Javascript. Language features you thought were unique to Typescript may be available in Javascript as well. So just how different are these two today? Let's test your knowledge of the Javascript and Typescript by looking at code snippets and determining if it is Javascript or Not Javascript. You may even learn about a few new features in the process!

I Feel the Need for Web Page Speed

We demand high performance web applications. To build them we need every single piece of information to help us find actionable ways of speeding up our applications. In this session learn how to use the performance API together with common browser performance tooling to determine down to the method level how long our pages take to perform operations. We’ll also touch briefly on instrumenting up popular frameworks such as React & Angular, running performance checks on mobile browsers, and free open source tools that can help you diagnose and monitor performance.
