Talks/topics to be covered:

Should I Gamble My Company on React? by Steve Neely

So there we were. A couple of devs, a dev manager, a data scientist, and the CEO of the company. He turns to us and says, "tell me why I should gamble my company on React?"

This is the story of how we convinced our executive leadership to greenlight pivoting our UI development to React. Our experiences will help you prepare for a time when you are trying to convince your bosses to adopt the next new technology.

Electron + React by Lovisa Svallingson

Electron makes it easy to build desktop applications using JavaScript - and since it's using Chromium under the hood we only have to develop for one browser! This talk will highlight some of Electron's features, discuss how it's used in larger applications such as Hyperterm and demonstrate how to get an Electron app up and running with React.
