Abstract: React: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Creating Web Apps we thrive for perfection: clean code and the perfect user experience. But usually, this becomes relevant when dissatisfaction appears: from the developers, from the users and of course from those git blamers we despise.
In this talk, we'll discuss how to please all sides and avert some of the pitfalls from the beginning not only sticking to the basics. Not re-rendering out components thousands of times, using error boundaries, render props, and many more patterns in productions to make our lives easier and going home without stress.

Bio: Tomas Eglinskas (Zenitech)

Being a full stack developer @Zenitech for almost a year I touched a multitude of different technologies: Java / Node.js / Koa.js / Docker / AWS / CucumberIO, but the one I admire the most is React. I usually spend my life learning algorithms/design patterns and playing with my corgi when he craves for attention.

Abstract: Real-time applications using Server-sent Events

Traditionally, when you want to retrieve some data from a server, you send a request, then wait for response then act upon it. In many cases it's all right.
What happens when you are building an application where you need real-time updates for various UI parts according to the data changes in the server? This is where Server-Sent Events come into play.
We will look into Server-sent events specification: how it works, what problems does it solve, how we use it, the good and the tricky parts.

Bio: Žilvinas Urbonas (Inventi)

Žilvinas works at Inventi. He is a professional developer with experience in implementing front end and back end for various kinds of web applications. Passionate about JavaScript both as a platform and language. Constantly trying to keep up the pace in this ever evolving IT world. On my spare time I enjoy keeping myself busy by heading out for a run, listening to podcasts and learning/enjoying new things.
