  • Augmented Reality with React Native — a medium worth to bridge?

    Dino Scheidt

    Shoplink, Germany

    Since Apple and Google have introduced ARKit and ARCore respectively, the excitement for easy access to Augmented Reality (AR) on everyday mobile devices is exploding. So let’s take a look of how we can marry this new medium with React Native in the most efficient way. We head dive into AR by understanding our UX goals with an interactive AR stage demo (so bring your device!), identify implementation paths as well as existing and new libraries.

  • React state management in a GraphQL era

    Kristijan Ristovski

    ReactAcademy, Macedonia

    Now that GraphQL takes care of managing data in our apps, is an external state-management library even needed? Let's explore all the possibilities and compare the combinations of React, Apollo, Redux, MobX, and Next.js

  • The power of interpolation

    Mike Grabowski, Poland

    One of the biggest benefits when choosing React Native is its declarative nature. Instead of laying out elements on screen manually, we tell React how our interface should look like for a given state. That, combined with React Native taking care of rendering, allows us to write things that would be hard or even impossible otherwise. One of such things are animations. Historically, we used to write them in an imperative and stateful manner. By design, these are hard to debug and - most importantly compose. In this talk we will take a look at writing animations in React Native by using Animated module.

  • Keep Your Sanity with Redux Sagas

    Tyler Clark

    Pluralsight, US

    Redux is a strict framework. Whether you view that as a pro or a con, handling async actions can sometimes be a pain. Especially if you are using middleware such as Redux Thunk and have to chain promises.

    As an application grows, it's difficult to maintain and continuously test these actions. By the use of the ES6 generator function, Redux Sagas break up async actions into synchronous events. This makes it easier to test, chain actions that depend on the result of each other, and deserialize promises.

  • We need to talk about Preact

    Sara Vieira

    YLDio, Portugal

    I know many of you have heard about Preact and may have even played arround with it but have you seen it's true potential? In this talk we are going to have the needed discussion about Preact and why it's awesome.

  • Building Storybook

    Norbert de Langen

    Xebia, The Netherlands

    How do we maintain Storybook and support react, react-native, vue and angular and an addon-ecosystem.

    Get to know how are yarn, lerna, react, circleCI, redux, jest, all coming together to form the best living styleguide platform supporting react, react-native, vue and angular.

  • Designing with React

    Kristin Baumann

    HomeToGo, Germany

    You can use React to develop web applications, native apps and many more awesome things. And since the launch of Airbnb’s react-sketchapp in April you can also write React components that render to a Sketch design file.

  • How we React at Microsoft To-Do

    Alex Migutsky

    Microsoft, Germany

  • GraphQL - The What, How and Why

I'll introduce core concepts and outline advantages of GraphQL so you can convince your manager and developer friends to use it in your next project.

  • A pragmatist's guide to ReasonML
