# Talks

## Deconstructing React
by Tejas Kumar

Tejas learns by taking things apart and putting them back together. Let’s do this with React in order to get a deeper understanding of:
• The Virtual DOM
• Hooks, and
• Suspense for data fetching

## Driving Migration
by Alex Suevalov

A path from point A to point B is not always easy and straightforward. You might know it, especially, if you ever migrated a big project from a legacy tech stack to a new and shiny one. In this talk, Aleksandr will share a journey of building a tool that helps Contentful to track the adoption of a new tech stack and design system.

More details: Migration of a massive project from one tech framework to another (in our case Angular 1.x to React) is a hot topic for a lot of companies. In his talk, Aleksandr will show a tool and ideas behind it that helped Contentful to facilitate migration, gave better visibility and changed his team's habits.
