About the conference: ReactFoo is a single-day React conference by HasGeek.
We’ll be annoucing the theme shortly
We are inviting proposals for:
Full-length 40 minute talks.
Crisp 15-minute talks.
Hands-on Workshop sessions, 3 and 6 hour duration.
Proposals will be filtered and shortlisted by an Editorial Panel. Please make sure to add links to videos / slide decks when submitting proposals. This will help us understand your speaking experience and delivery style. Blurbs or blog posts covering the relevance of a particular problem statement and how it is tackled will help the Editorial Panel better judge your proposals. We might contact you to ask if you’d like to repost your content on the official conference blog.
We expect you to submit an outline of your proposed talk – either in the form of a mind map or a text document or draft slides within two weeks of submitting your proposal.
You can check back on this page for the status of your proposal. We will notify you if we either move your proposal to the next round or if we reject it. Selected speakers must participate in one or two rounds of rehearsals before the conference. This is mandatory and helps you to prepare well for the conference.
A speaker is NOT confirmed a slot unless we explicitly mention so in an email or over any other medium of communication.
There is only one speaker per session. Entry to the conference is free for selected speakers. As our budget is limited, we prefer speakers from locations closer home, but will do our best to cover for anyone exceptional. HasGeek provides these limited grants where applicable: two international travel and accommodation grants, three domestic travel and accommodation grants. Grants are limited and made available to speakers delivering full sessions (40 minutes or longer). Speaker travel grants will be given in order of preference to students, women, persons of non-binary genders, and individuals for Asia and Africa first.
Commitment to open source
HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, we’d like for it to be available under a permissive open source licence. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licences (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognise that there are valid reasons for commercial licensing, but ask that you support us in return for giving you an audience. Your session will be marked on the schedule as a “sponsored session”.
Deadline for submitting proposals: 23 August 2017
Conference date: 14 September 2017
For more information about speaking proposals, tickets and sponsorships, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call +91 76763 32020.
Please note, we will not evaluate proposals that do not have a slide deck and a video in them.
Isolated react components as a black box with automated UI testing
Building react components in isolation to fullfil business use case and to acheive Zero coupling.
- Why - At Housing.com, when we moved to react from BackboneJS, we started gradually, creating components like just home page then list view, and so on. But we soon realised that, components(reusable components) are getting messier, since there are so many components just because everything is component in React. Components started growing like crazy.
- Problem - Since we have our mobile website and desktop website separate (though we serve both with housing.com), we had to write same react components in desktop as well as mobile, may be with just styling / css changes, but the logical flow & business use case of a software feature used to remain same.
- Solution - Isolating bunch of components as a black box. We started creating npm modules, and including them in a code as a feature. So our isolated react component is not just a dump component, but it takes care of executing entire feature.
- Going further and decoupling things - it was easy for us to figure it out, what should be isolated component, what should not be. I will be showing when to make Isolated component and when not to.
- Using React storybook to build components in isolation
- Redux Store - Since its isolated component, we don’t share data, actions, store. Every isolated component works on its own store.
