React is a hugely popular frontend framework that revolutionized the frontend development world. React is built primarily for the browser, while Node has fundamentally different operational constraints to the browser. And it has become painfully clear that React’s server-side rendering is a performance bottleneck for web backends around the world.

David Clements demonstrates a very simple solution that can be dropped into preexisting React applications to significantly improve server-side rendering throughput.

This session is sponsored by NearForm.
