## CSSinJS Unique Value Proposition and Future
About Oleg @oleg008
I have been working on web UIs over a decade when I realized there are 2 major challenges in front-end engineering: understanding the state and styling its representation. While the first task has become much easier with unidirectional data flow, components styling is still painful. To change that I started a project called JSS back in 2014 and didn't stop learning and improving it since then.
## Jest Can Do Whaaat?
About Robin @robinpokorny
## The Effect of React on Web Standards
Since inception React has solved problems from first principles, choosing to create the best possible product instead of relying on what was possible with already existent technology. In order to achieve this, the React team has invented new languages and paradigms such as JSX, the React component model and unidirectional data flow.
This talk will review these inventions and the supporting changes proposed to web specifications.
