Abstract: Move over, Gatsby - React Static in Practice
What do you do when you have over 700 unique localised pages for SEO, an aggressive deadline and a well-known mainstream solution? Use a small unknown framework instead, of course. React Static is an extremely simple and flexible static site generator and I will tell you all about it.

Abstract: Optimizing apps with code splitting
Today with so many frameworks, libraries, ready made UI libs we can craft front end apps very fast, the downside of this is that we can also make them bloated very fast. In my talk I'll look into one of the most effective ways to reduce the bloat - code splitting. This will be a practical, hands on presentation where we'll go through: benefits of code splitting, how to diagnose the bloat in apps bundle, how to do code splitting with webpack, how to modularize react and redux app for dynamic loading. We'll start with the basics and go into more advanced techniques, so that everyone from beginner to experienced developers can take away something new.
