Abstract

Why go fullstack? To elevate your craft to the next level. This talk will take you over basic concepts and tools that you need to know so that you can own the full stack. You’ll be able to build and integrate backend APIs with your react apps. Incidentally, StackOverflow declared the fullstack developer as the most desired job profile. Going fullstack with react and nodejs should be the next logical step in your react journey! In this session I will touch upon concepts (server-side javascript), patterns (API integration with react apps), frameworks (express) and tools (docker/k8s) that you can use to build and deploy fullstack react+nodejs apps.
