##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.

  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.

Rethinking with React 16

Submitted Nov 10, 2017

React v16.0 comes with some major changes and an update to the react core algorithm. With React v16.0 Facebook has completely revised the internals of React while keeping the public API essentially the same.
I would be discussing about what’s new in React 16 which would include a brief explantion of the new algorithm along with focus on few of the new features like Error Boundaries, Portals, Fragments and SSR with React 16.
The key takeaways for the audience would be a detailed understanding of how these new React 16 features can help us deliever a better web application and how can we rethink our existing application in React 16 and achieve better web performance with little to no change at all.


So giving you a brief overview my target audience are all the front end developers who are intertested in understanding the why of React 16 and would want to mirgrate there applications to the newer version of React. And of they haven’t thought of migrating then get them to start thinking about it, cause React 16 is awesome!
Since my talk would be entirely focussed on React 16, I would begin with how the new algorithm rewrite will help our applications perform better followed by detailed explanations on as I mentioned earlier: Error Boundaries, Portals, Fragments and SSR in React 16.
And since we all love to know how would it work in real world, I would explain every topic with a real world example and code snippets to demonstrate the need of these features.



Speaker bio

I have been working as a front end developer for past 3 years, with an expertise in React and Redux for more than 2 years now, this includes my work experience from to Craftsvilla to Hotstar!
In all of my above organizations we had a good amount of challenges while working with React, which is why it gives me a sufficient level of understanding to be speaking in front of you’ll on this topic.
So how React 16? As I’m in the process of migrating one of my applications to React 16, for which I have been studying all these days to get the best of React. And the key insights I’ve gained, my entire experience, I want to share all of that with you all.
