Location

Visit a monument to the future

With the ever-growing JS ecosystem, it’s only appropriate that we are hosting React Day Berlin in Kosmos, the amazing Space Age theatre from the 1960s. It is situated in the hip neighborhood of Friedrichshain full of great restaurants, bars, clubs and little shops, and the building was built with unconventional visionaries in mind.

The city on the edge of tomorrow

Berlin, Germany’s capital, is one of the busiest European tech centers and the best talent gravitates towards the city. With two international airports and modern infrastructure, you don’t even need a hyperdrive to get here.

Talks

Testing Is All About Principles
Alex Lobera
LeanJS & React GraphQL Academy, UK
Should we use react-testing-library or Enzyme? What about snapshot testing? What should be our code coverage? Those are questions we often hear when discussing testing. Those questions are easy to discuss but the answers won’t necessarily make us write more reliable and flexible code. Many developers struggle to write tests 1) quickly and 2) that increase their degree of confidence. Writing good tests requires writing good code. Writing good code that is easy to test requires a good understanding of programming principles and how they apply to the libraries of choice. Discussing principles is harder than discussing tools. In this talk, we’ll discuss the principles that will make developers increase their test confidence when building React apps. I’ll also use those principles to challenge some believes that the audience might have about certain testing libraries or methodologies.
