Your Next Game - Built by React

Technical level: Beginner
The internet offers an endless amount of simple online games like solitaire, minesweeper and hearts. However, these games are usually done with terrible UI/UX, lame graphics, full of banners and ads, and (dare I say it), built on FLASH.
In this presentation I will talk about how I built a DOOM minesweeper game with React, Redux & Typescript. I will also share my dream to create one open sourced website, which will host many well-created simple games, to serve both as a learning platform for developers and for players to enjoy playing good looking games with a great UI/UX, without a ton of ads, all in one place.
Personal experience with JS games
Why online games today are terrible
Devs to the rescue!
I’ve been hitting the JS scene since the evil days of Prototype (that thing that came before jQuery) but I’ve finally found my true love… React & Redux!
I am a Team Leader at Wix and I love helping people overcome problems with their code & product.
