Workshop: Getting Started with ReasonML & ReasonReact

Patrick Stapfer

ReasonML is a new cool JavaScript-like language with a strong type-system and first level React bindings. As with every new language, there comes a new ecosystem and unfamiliar concepts with it.
In this workshop, attendees will first of all learn how to setup and use ReasonML with React and find explanations on how to find relevant information for their coding problems (navigating the docs, leverage the community).
Later own they will discover the capabilities of the underlying JS-compiler platform called BuckleScript and see how Reason translates to JavaScript. They slowly will get introduced to the interoperability layer to be able to interact with existing JavaScript code and learn how the React component model works in practise.
In the end, ambitious attendees will be able to integrate Reason React components in their existing React codebase without interrupting the existing development workflows.

“Minimally-painful” React-Redux testing Workshop

Ben Ilegbodu

Let’s be honest, no one* enjoys writing unit tests... especially for UI code. JavaScript frameworks traditionally have been heavily tied to the DOM. The only way we could test our components was to run unit tests within headless browsers, or resort to much slower end-to-end tests. However, React’s architecture separates the component hierarchy from the DOM, making it much easier to quickly test the user interactions of our components without needing a browser at all.
When Eventbrite’s Frontend Platform team introduced React to our stack in 2016, we also developed best practices for testing React applications. In this talk, we’ll learn some dos and don’ts Eventbrite uses for writing unit tests for React components, including those gnarly complicated cases. Testing probably still won’t be glamorous... but with these lessons it shouldn’t be painful either!

Workshop: Redux from zero to hero

Braulio Díez & The Lemoncoders

Once you have started programming with React, you realize that there is a flux implementation call Redux that is a game changer... It's time to learn about this! In this workshop we will learn the basics, where does it apply or not (beware of the overarchitecture), and some cool aids like sagas, observables, selectors...

Workshop: A living design system with React Storybook

Jose Manuel Lucas

A Design System is a group of connected patterns that provides a shared language between different teams. An effective system also helps to reuse resources, techniques, and components, making more coherent and usable interfaces.
In this workshop, we're going to explore React Storybook, and we'll learn how to build a living, shared Design System with continuous integration.
The workshop is divided into 5 different parts:
1) Integrating Storybook in a React project.
2) React Storybook configuration options.
3) Creating stories.
4) Plugins and extras.
5) Q&A.

Workshop: Advanced React Native

Ferran Negre & Raúl Gómez

In this workshop you will an app together with us. We will cover concepts such as fetching, navigation, internationalization (i18n), native bridge (we will write a native module for both Android and iOS), powerful animations, bundles, testing, etc. This workshop requires the attendee to be familiar with React Native (knowing how to create a basic app and style it). It would be good to have a Mac too (specially for iOS part).
