Doors: 6.30 pm

Patrick’s Talk:
Breaking Down Your React App
React is based on the concept of components. The idea is to compose your application of independent building blocks that you can easily reuse or replace with better ones. If you embrace this idea, you can keep your platform tidy and maintainable. If you don’t – well, you can write React spaghetti code just as easily as you can write jQuery spaghetti code.
Patrick talks about his team’s constant effort to “componentize all the things”, to find best practices, strategies and patterns to constantly improve the code base.

Anja’s Talk:
You’re not - only - a frontend dev if you are writing (node.js) services.
JavaScript has grown a lot during the last years. Nowadays, people, who call themselves frontend developers, write (node.js) services as well. But with great power comes great responsibility. What can we learn from the guys who already designed services in other languages for years? How can we avoid the mistakes they made?
