- JS React Meetup Returns! Talks from Robert Balicki and Joe Porpeglia
Schedule 7:00pm Doors Open 7:00-7:30 Happy Hour 7:30-8:30 Talks & QA 8:30-9:00 Networking & Close Talk 1: "Component reusability in a huge, multi-page app" by Joe Porpeglia, Sr. Engineer @ Vimeo The web is based on separated concerns: html (semantics), css (presentation), js (behavior) but those separations can get blurry in large applications. In this talk, Joe Porpeglia of Vimeo will present a monolithic component that does all the things, then break it apart and discuss what's happening at each step. How to spot red flags, helpful naming conventions, helpful component patterns (hoc, container components, etc) will all be covered. -- Talk 2: "Super Smooth Deployments with React and AWS" by Robert Balicki of Hometeam We refactored our core app from Java -> Express -> Jade to a purely Java -> React SPA stack. We also built a kick-ass build and deploy process. It took us a while to figure out how to tweak the webpack config and to make use of all of the various AWS services (mostly Route53, S3, Cloudfront) to get it all working smoothly, but now that it is, we can claim: • extremely quick deployments • instant rollbacks • no caching problems • all of the hard parts are done via S3/Cloudfront/Route53 • use of S3 without any of the ugly S3 urls • anyone can have their own sandbox In this talk you'll learn how to deploy as reliably as Google, even if you don't have to.
