Workshop: Learn React by building a quiz game with Ken Rimple, Director of Training and Mentoring Services, Chariot Solutions Description: From 9:00am to 12:00pm, Chariot's Ken Rimple has a fun workshop in store for you. He'll bring an Express/GraphQL server Quizzo-style application, and you'll create a front-end for it in React. Along the way you'll learn how React components work, how you can build components functionally with hooks, interface with GraphQL and issue GQL queries, subscribe to game play messages, and answer questions to play the game. You'll develop the application as part of a Yarn monorepo. At the end, if all goes well, everyone can point their clients to Ken's server and play the game together. Prerequisites: This session is geared to the absolute React beginner. We'll assume you have a bit of JavaScript under your belt, and are a seasoned .NET or Java programmer besides. All you need to do is install the Long-Term support version of Node.Js and have joined conference WIFI and you're all set. We'll take it from there together. Following Dev Conference, join us at the Dev Happy Hour at Landmark Americana in University City Swag Bag Sponsored By: Turn5
