**Talk description:**
If you’ve built an app with React or React Native, chances are you’ve had to build at least one form. From profile screens to login pages, forms are unavoidable, and let’s be honest, they’re not very fun to build. For each field, you need to hold the value in the state of your component, implement onChange and onBlur handlers, implement validation… that makes for a lot of boilerplate, and that’s just for simple inputs.

There are several libraries out there that attempt to simplify this process, from Redux Form, to React Form, to Formik, among others. In this talk, we’ll go over the existing solutions, how they stack up against each other, and what their limitations are.

We thank our sponsor Shopify (https://www.shopify.ca/) for hosting us, and providing the food and drinks!
