ReactFoo Delhi

ReactFoo Delhi

On React, alternatives to React, ReactNative and front-end engineering

##About the event

After successful editions in Bangalore, Pune, Hyderabad and Mumbai, ReactFoo travels to Delhi. The Delhi edition will focus on the following topics:

  1. Performance and React.
  2. Performance, in general.
  3. Architecture with React.
  4. Alternatives to React – such as Angular, Vue and other frameworks – why these worked / did not work for your use-case.
  5. Mobile engineering with ReactNative or alternatives.

ReactFoo Delhi is an event for JavaScript, React and front-end engineers. All speakers must have direct experience working with performance, React, React Native or alternatives to these.


We invite developers and architects from large and small organizations to share their stories and insights with the community. You can either propose:

  1. Full length talks of 40 mins duration.
  2. Short talks of 20 mins duration.
  3. Birds Of Feather (BOF) sessions.
  4. Hands-on workshops for 3-6 hour duration.

Workshops on 19th August will be announced shortly. 30-40 participants will be admitted to each workshop. Workshop tickets have to be purchased separately.

Who should attend

  1. Front-end engineers
  2. JS engineers from enterprises.
  3. JS engineers from startups.
  4. Architects.
  5. Cross-platform mobile developers.

Why you should attend?

  1. To learn from and network with peers from the industry.
  2. To gain insights from case studies of practical implementation, and evaluate ReactJS and React Native for your work.
  3. To program better with React and React Native.

Talk selection process

Speakers from previous editions will review proposals and vote on them. In order to make it to the shortlist, your submission must contain the following information:

  1. Key insights you will present, or takeaways for the audience.
  2. Overall flow of the content.

You must submit links to videos of talks you have delivered in the past, or record and upload a two-min self-recorded video explaining what your talk is about, and why is it relevant for this event.

Also consider submitting links to the following along with your proposal:

  1. A detailed outline, or
  2. Mindmap, explaining the structure of the talk, or
  3. Draft slides.

Honorarium for selected speakers; travel grants

Selected speakers and workshop instructors will receive an honorarium of Rs. 3,000 each, at the end of their talk. Confirmed speakers and instructors also get a pass to the conference. We do not provide free passes for speakers’ colleagues and spouses.

Owing to a tight budget, we will not be able to offer travel grants or accommodation for this event.

Piggybacking your WebVR/AR experiences with React

Submitted Jun 13, 2018

Building for VR is hard? is it?
Yes and No, if you know the right tools to start.
A long history with React on Web and Native led to a very natural exploration in the Virtual space. This session would love to tell you about it!
React VR provided a unique opportunity to leverage our expertise to rapidly test and iterate many of the VR ideas developers have been playing with. Today the easiest way to prototype your VR/AR ideas is to build it using browser based platforms and since the involvement of companies like Microsoft, Mozilla, Google and Samsung, WebVR and WebAR have been put on a track to stars and react becoming one of the Top-dogs of it.
Why React?
One of React’s biggest innovations is that it enables developers to describe a system, such as the UI of a web or mobile app, as a set of declarative components. The power of this declarative approach is that the description of the UI is decoupled from its implementation, allowing authors to build custom “renderers” that target more platforms than just web browsers, such as hardware, terminal applications, music synthesizers, and Because React VR implements a lot of the same public APIs that React Native implements, developers have access to the same vast ecosystem of patterns, libraries, and tools. It will feel familiar for any developer who has built React or React Native apps. Devs are able to get a VR prototype up and running quickly; in no time at all, scaffolding basic React application, set up Redux, and begin hitting your production JSON API for sample data.

Following are the deliverables of this talk/session:

  1. What is webVR/AR?
  2. Popular webVR/AR frameworks, Where does ReactVR stand in this race?
  3. Why React?
  4. How to ReactVR/AR?
  5. Prototyping tools for React/React Native Developers for both VR/AR scenes.
  6. Its not about the framework, its the framrate.
  7. Try ReactVR scenes live.

What will a developer learn from this talk:

  1. You are not here to learn React, beacuse its time for ReactVR
  2. viroReact
  3. Reactnative and porting to Oculus and Vive.
  4. Develope for Universe, native sharing tools in React.
  5. “Lets be social: Talk with webRTC integration in ReactVR” OR “UX for 3D worlds”
  6. Redux, is there an option?



Learn JS :P -> Try webVR/AR -> Learn Dev tools -> Prototype Ideas -> Select best tool -> Build -> Deploy

All this in one talk. This talk will give precisely planned insights on the complete developement cycle with ReactVR/AR.


For Audience: Laptop and Presence of Mind
For Organisers: It would be awesome to have some VR headsets (I can bring one Oculus go to try webVR).
