Talks/topics to be covered:

Developing React with Docker by Michael Herman and Caleb Pollman

In this talk, we'll look at a development workflow to manage a React app within a Docker container. Often, when developing applications with a microservice architecture, you cannot fully test out all services until you deploy to a staging server. This takes much too long to get feedback. Docker helps to speed up this process by making it easier to link together small, independent services locally. In this talk, we'll look at a development workflow to manage a React app running in a Docker container within a larger set of services.

Build a React Component Library by Alan Smith

A component library can be a useful tool for your applications and a fun personal challenge. We'll briefly discuss setting up a npm lib as well as styled-components, but we'll mostly focus on approaches for building useful, reusable components. The purpose of this talk is to encourage you to create and publish your own reusable components.
