A JavaScript junkie, Bill came to Facebook almost two years ago and immediately fell in love with React, Facebook’s functional-reactive inspired framework for managing the DOM. After realizing that many people outside of Facebook were struggling to integrate React with existing architectures, Bill pushed Flux — the architectural pattern used at Facebook alongside React — into the light of the open source community. He is the principal author of Facebook’s Flux documentation and example code.

Instead, we use Flux, an architectural pattern that plays to React's strengths. By the end of the talk, you'll understand everything you need to know to start building applications the way we do at Facebook. Read more.
