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

Understanding React Hooks
This talk will be about what, why and how of React Hooks. The audience will get a clear picture of what hooks are, how are they different from current react app development methods and thus help them make decision on whether to use hooks in their apps or not.
I gave a session on React Hooks at a local meetup. The contents were
1. React in brief
2. Why hooks
3. Built-in hooks
4. Custom hooks
5. Hooks working under the hood
6. Rules of hooks
7. Hooks - a general programming pattern
This could be tweaked based on the available time. Recording of session is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLYQtSAuvsY
