About the talk
ReactJS (https://facebook.github.io/react/) is the new kid on the block and WordPress (https://wordpress.org/) has stood the test of time. This talk will cover how easily you can introduce ReactJS within an existing WordPress site. We will talk about React tooling (Webpack and Babel) and how to setup a modern JS workflow for development. Last we will talk about how you can package your code for production using Preact.
Arrive from 6.30. The talk will start at 7.
