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

The React architecture for performance and productivity (Intermediate)

Submitted Jun 3, 2017

Learn how to build performant applications with React and make your developer experience super sweet.

Let’s talk about server rendering, loading strategies and progressive enhancement to fulfil the gold standard performance checklist without breaking a sweat.

Outline

Start with a badly designed app and make it awesome. This workshop is a step by step refactor of a badly performing React application (instagram clone)

Uses concepts from my talk proposal: https://reactfoo.talkfunnel.com/2017/4-building-applications-for-the-next-billion-users

Concepts:

  1. Performance
    1.1 Why should you care about performance?
    1.2 How to measure performance
    1.3 Metrics that matter (meaningful paint, time o interaction)

  2. Where to start?
    2.1 Performance budget
    2.2 Server side rendering (get to meaningful paint fast)
    2.3 Javascript loading strategies (serving the least amount, page-specific, code splitting, etc)
    2.4 Lazy loading good-to-have features, analytics et al (second level of code-splitting)

Code time:

  1. Upgrade tooling
    1.1 Code structure
    1.2 Server
    1.4 Bundling (webpack)
    1.5 Developer experience (webpack dev middleware, hot module replacement, etc.)

  2. Styling
    2.1 CSS-in-JS: Why?
    2.2 CSS-in-JS: Implementation

  3. Performance optimisations
    3.1 Route specific code spliting
    3.2 Lazy loading
    3.3 Data fetching on the server
    3.4 Swap with preact

Requirements

Laptop with node + npm installed.

Folks who have built a react application or two. This isn’t very beginner friendly.

Speaker bio

Why should you let me talk about this/Why am I excited about it?

  1. I spend a lot of time during my day job thinking about (and implementing) architecture patterns for a healthcare startup in India. (It is literally my job to talk about this :D)
  2. I am a regular speaker at ReactJS Meetup in Bangalore. Have talked about styling, testing, performance, designing and some more
  3. I make OSS projects for building performant apps easier: cost-of-modules, recreate, reaqt, css-constructor.
  4. I obsess over interfaces, web performance and developer experience.
