React Amsterdam – a few quick takeaways

This was my first React dedicated conference, and to be honest I had my reservations. There is only so much you can fit into a single topic. One day single track conf turned out to be quite diverse to keep the attention all the way. As usual I was keeping random notes from the event. All notes and ideas are originated from talks, but are not necessarily direct quotes.

An evening of testing workflows and dynamically built forms awaited visitors to Code Node last Wednesday when the London React Meetup was once again in town. Tom Duncalf kicked things off by describing what he has found to be effective unit and integration testing strategies for React applications.

Patterns for scaling CSS

How we write CSS has changed a lot in the recent years. Many developers do not write vanilla CSS at all anymore, BEM seems to be the industry standard for structuring the codebase and the advent of SPA’s has magnified it’s shortcomings.

London React Meetup – October 2015

With pizza eaten and beers in hand the Facebook auditorium was once again rammed for this months React.js meetup. We were incredibly excited and honoured to welcome Nick Schrock, Facebook Engineer & GraphQL co-creator, to give an extended talk on his creation – GraphQL.

GraphQL and The Open Movie Database. From introspection to Inception.

I recently returned from React Europe 2015 where Facebook released GraphQL, it's been in production use at Facebook for several years. In a nutshell, a GraphQL API opposes REST and add-hoc endpoints, it allows a client to efficiently get all the data it needs in one network request, and it allows a developer to concisely and declaratively express their apps data requirements.

Tech Round Table 2015

Every year since 1988 I’ve been saying “there’s never been a better time to be a software developer” and I expect to continue saying it for a long while yet. But it seems that the last year has been especially significant. Several incredibly exciting technologies have emerged recently that are changing everything.
