##About ReactFoo Bangalore:
ReactFoo Bangalore comes back to its original home after completing five successful editions, India-wide:
- ReactFoo Bangalore - September 2017
- ReactFoo Pune - January 2018
- ReactFoo Hyderabad - March 2018
- ReactFoo Mumbai - May 2018
- ReactFoo Delhi - August 2018
ReactFoo Bangalore will bring together over 250 developers working with React, and who are invested in building a space for conversations around experiences using React in production.
ReactFoo Bangalore is a single-day, single track conference with talks, office hours and Birds of Feather(BoF) sessions. Workshops will be held on 1 and 3 March, before and after the conference.
##Who should attend ReactFoo:
- Front-end engineers
- Teams and companies who are evaluating frameworks to use for running applications in production
- Cross platform mobile developers
ReactFoo provides you the opportunity to:
- Learn from and network with peers from the industry
- Gain insights from case studies of practical implementation, and evaluate ReactJS and React Native for your work
- Understand how to run React in production, end-to-end, rather than only build an application with React
We need to talk.. about testing!
I’ve been using React for almost 5 years, but I hadn’t written a single test till quite recently. I always felt that testing is difficult, time consuming and mostly unnecessary. But after trying it, I realized that it’s actually really really easy to test React & Redux applications, and requires almost zero setup to get started. It’s totally worth the investment!
Besides, it doesn’t have to be “all or nothing”. You can test specific parts of application logic in isolation, and save yourself from hours of mindless debugging. Moreover, writing tests also acts as a forcing function to write modular, encapsulated and testable code.
This talk should be accessible to most developers familiar with React JS and Redux.
I plan to spend about 5 minutes talking about each of the following topics:
- Why, when and what to test?
- Testing React+Redux apps
- Writing testable code
- Testing Redux reducers and action creators
- Testing presentational components using snapshots
- Mocking network requests and testing asynchronous code
- Putting it all together
- The talk will involve some live coding and testing.
- React JS
I’ve been using React JS since 2013, and React Native since its initial release, so I’m well versed with the tools, libraries, community best practices etc. As a part of my consulting and freelance work, I have helped several teams adopt React JS and related tools & technologies (React Router, Redux, Webpack etc.) for large enterprise-scale applications.
I’ve also created several open source projects related to React JS and React Native, the most popular of which is ‘react-native-dialogs’ which has 400+ stars on Github and is used by 2500+ developers every month (more at npmjs.com/~aakashns ) . Apart from this, I also blog frequently about React/React Native and related topics at medium.com/@aakashns .
