Title: Static site generation with React & Gatsby

The standard content management system (CMS) or blog is a database-driven dynamic web app. But how often does it really change? What if it was a static site? React can do it! Just render it with Node.js. And Gatsby ( is a great tool for getting started quickly.

Title: CodePush - Web-like Release Agility for Native Apps

React Native makes building mobile apps as easy and fun as Web development - we can use the JavaScript technologies we love and iterate fast using live reload. But while this makes for a great dev experience, the release cycle still leaves much to be desired! Unlike simply pushing code to a web server, it may take weeks to ship new features or bug fixes via the approval process of third party stores, and we cannot guarantee that all our users update their apps diligently.

CodePush for React Native fixes this gap by letting you roll out app improvements to end-user devices in a matter of seconds. Combined with other services like VSTS and HockeyApp, this talk will show you how easy it can be to set up a build pipeline, release continuous app deployments and monitor app health, achieving the same web-like agility for mobile projects.
