How to avoid React, may be.

Submitted Feb 1, 2019

This is not one of those “use other frameworks” evangelism talks. I’ve seen my share of decisions being made to use a front-end only approach even though it’s not quite needed.

In this talk I’ll share some of these decision making stories, and how to actively avoid “just” using a framework and doing your best to reduce the on going JavaScript warming and save the world.


  • A tiny library to make it easy to create DOM nodes in JavaScript
  • Tiny “refresh-on-change” library
  • New browser APIs that are very useful (intersection observer, mutation observer etc.)
  • Finally look at using all the above to build a fast, light-weight page, possibly a clone of a popular web application.

A banker turned programer, I spend most of my time fiddling in browser console.
