abstract:: By far the most difficult challenge in user interface programming is to bridge the gap between simply reading code and understanding what actually happens when it runs. React gives us a fantastic tool that helps eliminate time so we can more easily predict exactly what's going to happen.

bio:: Maggie works in the Open Source Programs office at Microsoft, where she helps people navigate Microsoft’s OSS ecosystem both by writing code to better automate open source processes, and by advocating OSS within the organization. In the past she has been a SQL Server DBA, a full stack .NET developer, and a project manager. In her non-Microsoft open source life, she is a maintainer of Moment.js, and a frequent conference speaker advocating for open source involvement and better handling of date and time in programming.
When she is not coding, Maggie enjoys spending time with her four-year-old son, drinking too much coffee, and showing and breeding Australian Shepherds.
