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.

Ryan is the CTO and co-founder of Formidable Labs, a boutique JavaScript development shop in Seattle, WA. He architects full-stack JavaScript applications and backend Node.js services, and leads development groups ranging from small startups to Fortune 500 engineering teams. Ryan is also the author of Backbone.js Testing (http://backbone-testing.com/), a comprehensive test development guide for modern JavaScript web applications.
