About Fragments Ahmedabad: State of Platforms
The Ahmedabad edition of Fragments Conference is a technical, deep-dive conference, discussing:
React: where Vipul AM, director at Big Binary, elaborates on tooling, resources and how to get started with React: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/state-of-react-BDg5te9DaeahZN9kVaahRV
React Native: working with the React Native team at Facebook in San Francisco, Parashuram explains how you can build high quality applications with React Native: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/building-high-quality-mobile-apps-with-react-nativ-T4xVLyEQFFGKzgvNsdRuta
Flutter: Pooja Bhaumik explains the ease of development with Flutter in terms of reduced development times, ease of learning, and other technical features which make Flutter an attractive platform: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/flutter-do-more-with-less-code-jbAn8PKhyFgna44bvJ8fHf
Comparisons of the above platforms with Kotlin and NativeScript: Arnav Gupta, known for his active involvement with the Android community, demonstrates the pros and cons of different platforms by showing how he built an app using Kotlin, Flutter and NativeScript: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/what-i-learnt-by-building-the-exact-same-app-in-ko-NuZgd4bLfKkcck2yHEGRmg
While platforms have brought in frameworks and ease of development, at the heart of a good mobile app underlies sound engineering. One such practice is that of end-to-end testing. Preeti Wadhwani argues about the importance of E2E testing, in her talk at the conference: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/meet-my-new-friend-testing-Y5FuAn6jCmXDdyL7o72LtM
We have organized a flash talks session for audience to showcase their open source work, and contribute to the above discussions. See the full conference schedule here: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/schedule
Workshops and BOF sessions:
Conferences are as much about interactions and sharing of experiences, as they are about learning. Post-lunch, we have two tracks at Fragments Ahmedabad edition:

Fast Loading Your React Apps : Where to Start
This talk is aimed at React front-end developers. The talk is based on my experiences with optimizing React Web App front-end performance. The goal is to share the experiences with the audience to help them:
- Understand how to start analyzing for performance for React Web App
- Various options they have when it comes to improving performance
The talk shall contain analysis screenshots, list of plugins / presets / config options to use, code snippets to serve the above purpose.
Shall cover the following areas with actual examples and code snippets:
- How to approach optimizing performance of React Web App (what to analyze, where to start, tools to use for analysis)
- Tree shaking opportunities (automatic tree shaking and Webpack plugins, options for further tree shaking)
- How to approach code splitting (listing libraries, React options that can be used)
- How to maximize caching benefits through vendor bundling (with splitchunks, CommonChunksPlugin examples)
- How to set up performance efficient babel transpilation (with babel-preset-env examples)
I’m founder of Tezify.com - an org that is focussed solely on website front-end performance. Selling my consulting services - I have optimized front-end performance for various high volume traffic websites in India - this includes React SPAs at reputed startups.
