Moving From Ember.js To React

Gordon Hempton 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, 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 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, a comprehensive test development guide for modern JavaScript web applications.
