Moving From Ember.js To React
Gordon Hempton (https://twitter.com/ghempton) will be giving a talk on using React inside of an existing Ember.js application. He will discuss the motivations behind the move as well as introduce a project to make such a transition easier: ember-react (https://github.com/ghempton/ember-react).
Gordon works at outreach.io (http://www.outreach.io/), uses components with reckless abandon, and is excited about the future of client-side applications.
Backbone.js with React Views - Server Rendering, Virtual DOM and More!
Ryan Roemer (https://twitter.com/ryan_roemer) will discuss moving the view components of a conventional Backbone.js app to React and dive into many of the new and exciting facets of a reactive, virtual DOM-based view layer.
He will review the path leading up to https://github.com/FormidableLabs/notes-react-exoskeleton -- a lean, modern MVC app with nifty features like server-side rendering and transparent server/client-side routing.
