Outline

The talk would focuss on how BookMyShow benefitted moving to React.

Bring your php application to the next level by migrating it to React.

It not only helped us moving from the legacy php code but also drastically increased conversions in 4 weeks.
Update: Why the hell did I need to migrate in the first place?

This would also focuss on what challenges we faced while moving for php to react. For BookMyShow, the move to PWA meant moving the backend stack, PHP, which also meant reinventing parts of the wheel.

What made us build a PWA even when we had apps. Moreover success stories after we moved to React.

    This is an interesting topic. We had a team working on a PHP codebase, but luckily we moved to a NodeJS / React stack before the codebase could transition from being under development to production level.

    I have a small doubt though, when you say “migrating a PHP app to React”, what backend are we talking about; is it still PHP with a React-ified frontend; or is it something else (ala NodeJS)?
