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.

Format

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.

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.

Hosted by

A community - for and of - front-end engineers to share experiences with ReactJS, performant apps with React, crafting better User Interfaces (UI) with React and GraphQL ecosystem. ReactFoo also discusses design patterns and user experience. more

Learn React the right way

Submitted Dec 3, 2017

It’s easy to get lost without proper guidance and path to follow.

On the surface, React may look like just a view library, but there is big ecosystem that revolves around it.

This workshop starts with understanding the basic internals of React before exploring how to “think in React”,

best practices and solutions to real problems that you will experience while building an application.

Outline

Stage 1:

Technically, it’s possible to write a React app without the latest version of JavaScript, but it won’t be easy. We’ll learn the good parts that make it easier to write maintainable code with React. Let’s also find the reason behind React’s popularity, what makes it so good?

  • ES6

  • Fundamental concepts of React

  • Virtual DOM

Stage 2:

Learning the methods of React is important, but useless without learning how to “think in React”. Let’s understand the patterns that make your components extremely reusable and your application more declarative.

  • Thinking in React

  • Components + JSX

  • Props

Stage 3:

Let’s take things to the next level and explore how to build real world applications that handle state and deal with data. If you have heard of state management libraries like redux or mobx, you’ll learn how and more importantly when to use them to get the maximum benefit.

  • Class components

  • State & Lifecycle methods

  • Data fetching

Stage 4:

Wrap things up with making your application maintainable and future proof with testing. This is also where we explore potential performance bottlenecks that infest React applications.

  • Architecture patterns

  • Performance

  • CSS-in-JS

  • Testing with jest and enzyme

  • State management libraries like redux and mobx

(Can share slides privately with the organisers)

Requirements

This workshop is for developers who have an understanding of javascript, looking to get started with React or moving from a different framework like angular, ember, etc.

A laptop with Node 8+ and npm 3+

Advanced React Component Patterns

React on it’s own has a very small API surface. Most of the magic happens in user-land. It feels like every month, someone from the community finds an innovative way of writing components. This is the best part about React, the creative community. more
