Our Redux Anti-pattern: A Guide to Scalability by Yazan Alaboudi

Redux, or Flux in general, has become a go-to solution to state management for front-end applications. This library brings with it new terminologies and enforces concepts that enable developers to achieve a reactive architecture.

In this talk, Yazan will walk you through how Redux is an instance of a Publish/Subscribe (Pub/Sub) model. He’ll use that perspective to redefine what an "Action" should represent to enable scalability with ease. To benefit from this talk, you must have a fundamental understanding of Redux.

For the majority of his career, Yazan has worked as a software development consultant. In his current role, he's responsible for building web applications for clients using modern JavaScript. He's super interested in holistic approaches to application architecture and design.


Intro to Storybook Driven Development by Adam Sullovey

In this talk, you’ll find out why you should be excited about using React with Storybook. Adam will explain how to use it, provide a walk-through of the UI, and explain how it can speed up your workflow.

Adam has 10 years of experience building products and marketing campaigns on the web and mobile - plus a few physical installations. When Adam isn't in front of a computer making stuff, you can probably find him on a bike or on the side of a mountain.
