THIS SESSION HAS REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS LISTED BELOW

Managing UI complexity is still hard, but a lot has changed over the last year. React began as a hotly-debated technology, and early adopters found themselves defending some bold and different ideas seen as “crazy” by many. Now, those very ideas have permeated the front-end development community. In this updated-for-Fluent talk, we’ll explore:

  • What has changed in the last year, and what that means for existing React users and those just getting started
  • What has worked: real-world application patterns, tooling choices…
  • What hasn’t: “gotchas” to avoid
  • What the near-future holds for React fans

Bring your questions!
