ReactFoo Pune

On lessons learned during implementation.

##About the event

After a successful first edition in Bangalore, ReactFoo travels to Pune. ReactFoo Pune will focus on the following topics:

  1. Success and failure stories of implementing React and React Native for your use-case.
  2. Lessons learned in shifting codebase from older frameworks to React.
  3. Comparative advantages of React and other JS frameworks.

ReactFoo Pune is an event for practitioners, by practitioners.


We invite developers and architects from large and small organizations to share their stories and insights with the community.

ReactFoo Pune is a two-day event with:

  • Hands-on workshops on 19 January.
  • Single track of talks and Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions on 20 January.

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

##Who should attend

  1. JS engineers from enterprises.
  2. JS engineers from startups.
  3. Architects.
  4. 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.

##Selection process

Proposals will be shortlisted and reviewed by an editorial team consisting of practitioners from the community. Make sure your abstract contains 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.

##Important dates
ReactFoo Pune conference – 19 January, 2018.
ReactFoo Pune hands-on workshops – 20 January, 2018.
Last date for submissions - 7 December, 2017.

##Contact details:
For more information about speaking, ReactFoo, sponsorships, tickets, or any other information contact or call 7676332020.

##Proposal topics:
Proposals that will be evaluated will focus on personal experiences with React from a first person perspective. We’re looking for talks that will expand on reasons for decisions made to implement React, stumbling points before and after having done so, successes or failure faced with React, etc. Instructional talks exploring new features and how-to talks are not going to be a part of this edition of the conference.

Amit Erandole

Beyond Redux and MobX - A Functional approach to building React Apps

Submitted Nov 7, 2017

This talk presents a functional approach to state management using Andrew Clark’s Recompose toolset.


Do you know what kind of animal a function really is? I will show you powerful composition patterns that will blow your mind and get you started with thinking about state management as a pattern of component composition.

You will learn how you to add and remove state from your component without writing complex object heirarchies and manually managing state.

If you’ve been curious about writing powerful stateless components that can work with the React lifecycle, I’ll show you a way to ‘lift’ state into functional wrappers and keep your components focused on single responsibilities and free of complex logical responsibilities.

This workshop introduces a powerful set of practices to create stateless functional components that separate logic, data and presentation from your components.

Here is a preliminary outline:

  1. How functions break down user interfaces and programs
  2. How functions can be glued to create new functions
  3. How functional composition works
  4. Viewing React components as pure functions
  5. Composing React components with Ramda.js
  6. Injecting State with Recompose or Statty
  7. Injecting event handlers with Recompose
  8. Managing lifecycle events with Recompose
  9. Condition free components
  10. How functions make testing easier


Just have create react app installed with vscode
