I just came home from the first day of the two-day conference about reactive programming and the React ecosystem. Man, I’m pretty pumped up! It was magnificent, and my brain hurts a bit. Here are my feelings from the day:
In all seriousness, React is an awesome library for building UIs. If you use Facebook, then you have already seen it in action — the whole chat is written in it. But what is it all about? Well, I’ve written about it very briefly before (link, link). The Internet is full of articles describing its prowess. However, there are plenty of people who prefer watching videos, listening to an experienced developer explaining it, instead of having to spend weeks of hard reading. And I got something special for you. Two things actually.
