Similar to the three pigs building progressively sturdier houses, we gradually arrived at solutions providing better maintainability and a more efficient developer experience. From beginning with straw, progressing to wood and now iterating further with stone, here is our story.

This January 24th we gathered for another React London meetup. Pizza and drinks brought us joy and warmth while Facebook’s office got packed with hundreds of developers excited for a great round of talks.
Find out what’s wrong with shallow rendering and see what you should use instead when unit testing your React components.
Matt went to Reactive Conf in Bratislava last month; here are his top tips on which of the talks are worth catching up on.
Free beer and pizza, developers, and maybe React talks? You’ve come to the right place! This month’s React London Meetup was held at Skillsmatter, CodeNode, which a great place for like minded developers to socialise, share their ideas and see the latest trends in the React community.
React has exploded in the last few years. People are catching on to the technical advantages it brings. Should you consider adopting it? This article aims to relay the benefits of React.JS in plain English.
Great beer, pizza and speakers can only mean one thing, another React London Meetup! This month we had three awesome speakers and the sweltering hot weather that can only be "enjoyed" once or twice a year in London.
Summer is finally (somewhat) here. With it came our July React London meetup where several hundred React enthusiasts traded the heat for pizza, beer and three stellar talks (which you can watch here).
What a whirlwind of a trip to Paris. The badgers are back in London after three days of meeting ReactJS developers, hastily starring cool GitHub repos, and having a few too many at the Frog. As a relative newcomer to React it was fascinating to hear about how much the ecosystem and community have grown in just a year.
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.
In March 2016, as a part my annual training budget - a perk that every badger gets - I had the opportunity to go all the way to the Fluent Conf, which was in sunny San Francisco. You can read the best bits from the conference in Alex's blog.
This month we were back at the London Facebook office for another brilliant London React Meetup. We had another full house with plenty of pizza, beer and React geekery.
Last week I had the great opportunity to join a group of React-enthusiasts at a course ran by Michael Jackson and Ryan Florence.
Christmas is over and New Years resolutions have been made (and/or already broken?) but regardless of the sub zero temperatures, 250 developers flocked to Facebook's London HQ for the first London React Meetup of 2016. This month's topics covered React Native, Redux, testing with React & declarative coding with React.
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.
Last month I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak about React at the WebExpo conference in Prague, the largest tech conference in central Europe. It was a real honour attend, especially as I had never visited the Czech Republic before and the guys at WebExpo were incredibly welcoming.
