“Top 5 Reactive Programming Use Cases With RxJS and Antares” by Dean Radcliffe
In React, the UI reacting to state is only one part of the process, and far from the hardest. We also have to react to: async responses returning in different orders than we planned, rate limits, services we talk to being so slow or unreliable, too much activity, and even inactivity! RxJS gives us many tools to deal with this that work equally well on the front-end and the back-end, and Antares provides a friendly, incremental approach to using the power of RxJS with an API that's familiar to anyone who's written an event handler. Come and see a variety of frequent use cases live coded, and up your Reactive game so your UIs and backends can really shine. Dean Radcliffe has been web-developing since the 'table' tag was the new hotness. He lives in Evanston with his family, loves playing music, running and juggling, and loves to help people make whatever they can dream up. **** LIGHTNING TALK **** "Introducing Hooks” by Jake worth Hooks are a new feature proposal currently in React v16.7.0-alpha. But what are they? What problem are they trying to solve? How might they affect my code? This talk answers these questions, toward a clear understanding of this new tool and the potential benefits it may provide. Jake is a developer at Hashrocket, currently obsessed with building exceptional user experiences. When not attending React Chicago, he can be found organizing Vim Chicago.
