Cooking toast with hooks (Short)
- Christopher Grainger (CTO/Founder of amplified ai)

Everybody seems to be talking about hooks. Reactions range from heralding a React panacea to asking ‘hey what’s wrong with classes?’ In this talk, I’ll walk through building a simple toast notification system using hooks and the context API, comparing with some alternate ‘pre-hooks’ approaches. In addition to showing how hooks can be practically applied in a project, I’ll emphasise emerging patterns and some of the benefits I’ve experienced using hooks in production.


Up and Going with Fullstack TypeScript (Short)
- Basarat Ali Syed (Software Development Practice Lead at Australia

A quick intro to getting started with fullstack TypeScript.


Using redux-saga to make testing easier (In-Depth)
- David Johnson (Full Stack JS Developer at blacksheepcode)

Redux-saga and javascript generators - and how that lets you test your code without mocking.
