Speakers & Topics 


Kitze Live Coding & Workshop

React Academy

Fastest typer in the game

Advanced Patterns, React 16 & Beyond and Hooks 

Keywords: #ContextAPI #statemanagement #components #reacthooks #useState #useEffect #useContext


Kitze founded React Academy to teach React and GraphQL around the world. He’s documenting his journey on YouTube. He made products like Sizzy, Twizzy, OK Google, JSUI, etc. 

Kitze will be doing an Advanced Talk & React Workshop exploring advanced techniques for making flexible and maintainable React components.We’ll see how using popular patterns like Compound Components, Controlled Components, Render Props, Function As A Child etc. can help us in simplifying things, making our components more reusable and our apps more declarative.

React 16 comes with some major changes and an update to the core algorithm. In this module, we’ll explore some practical use-cases for Portals, Fragments etc. React.lazy and Suspense will help us to easily code split and lazy load components in our app in order to reduce the final size of the bundle. And finally Classes are so 2018, so we’ll start by learning everything about the biggest change that happened to React: Hooks. Combined with Context, they are changing the entire state-management game. We’ll cover useState, useEffect, useContext, etc.

The same issues are relevant for your applications and performance: You don’t want to pre-optimize or over-optimize but how do you know if you have a problem and once you do, how do you go about fixing it?
