ReactFoo 2017

A conference on React

About the conference: ReactFoo is a single-day React conference by HasGeek.

We’ll be annoucing the theme shortly

Format

We are inviting proposals for:
Full-length 40 minute talks.
Crisp 15-minute talks.
Hands-on Workshop sessions, 3 and 6 hour duration.

Selection process

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.

Selection Process Flowchart

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”.

Important dates:

Deadline for submitting proposals: 23 August 2017

Conference date: 14 September 2017

Libraries that make React Native more powerful

Submitted Feb 8, 2017

React Native is great choice for companies who want to limit their investments for mobile development without sacrificing to go for Hybrid approach. It’s a code-once-deploy-many approach to native Mobile app development. Still the framework by itself is not complete in many respect to harness the power of device capabilities like good UI toolkit, animation, audio, graphics support, camera, geo location, gyroscope etc. This session is primarily focused on analysing few 3rd party libraries that makes developing apps with React Native so much more fun, productive and efficient.

Outline

We will start with a case of an app that needs to harness native capabilities of a mobile device. We will look at the basic structure of React Native code, reveal the missing links in the React Native framework and see how each library fill in the gap so well. This will be a beginer level session so those who have never worked on React or React Native will also be at ease in the session. For those who want to start writing their first mobile app using JavaScript, this will definitely prove to be a good starting point.

Requirements

Basic knowledge of JavaScript
