Tired of redux? Michel Weststrate will introduce mobx-state-tree. Gert Hengeveld will explain how he built a progressive web app with React. Norbert Langen, the maintainer of React Storybook will tell a great story about open source.
An introduction to mobx-state-tree
Michel Weststrate - Author of MobX
Mobx-state-tree is an opinionated state container powered by MobX. It combines the best features from the immutable and mutable worlds. It offers JSON patches, time traveling, action distribution, runtime type checking etc. It encapsulated many best practices such as how to handle references, create forms that can be committed atomically etc. The library is not published yet, but Michel will give us a sneak preview!
Building a Progressive Web App with React
Gert Hengeveld - Full Stack Developer at Xebia
Second speaker is Gert, he recently built a Progressive Web App for the internal Knowledge Exchange sessions at Xebia. With Xebians being a very demanding and judicial user group, this app had to be top-notch and well polished. In his talk, Gert will explain the details of building a high performance mobile-first web application which works well and looks good on any platform.
Norbert Langen - Maintainer of React Storybook
React Storybook is a UI development environment for your React components. With it, you can visualise different states of your UI components and develop them interactively.It was developed by kadira, but is now maintained by an OS community. We’ll soon be releasing version 3.0.0. I’m going to share some of the hurdles we’ve faced and are in front of us.It’s not just a demo of storybook, but also a story about open source.
