Igniting Mobile Development

Oct 26, 2016 10:00am MDT

Jumping into React Native isn’t a simple task. You don’t need to be start in the deep end alone. Best practices have been battle tested and updated in app after app, so where’s the boilerplate? Ignite attempts to give you best practices from multiple apps in a clean and generated way. You’re only a command away from beginning your own React app with all the tools and examples you’ll need. Note: This video stops around 11 minutes in. Google Hangouts quit recording at that point with no warning. We'll be scheduling a webinar to re-record. 

About The Speaker

Gant Laborde

Gant Laborde is a New Orleans native, born and raised. He grew up with hurricanes (not the drink), rich New Orleans culture, and as a free tour guide for all his out-of-state friends. Over the years he’s seen his city experience, corruption, flooding, heartbreak, and most importantly, revived-determination. “New Orleans doesn’t know how to quit” Gant says, “that’s why I love it.” Gant firmly believes conflict abets passion, a fire always moves fastest uphill. As tech lead for the San Francisco company Infinite Red, Gant works remotely from his home and uses his self-managed autonomy to explore a variety of leadership arts. Besides managing the all-remote team from around the world, Gant has become a published author, adjunct professor, volunteer mentor, and a speaker at conferences world-wide. Each day, Gant refines what leadership means as he strives to bridge the gap the theory and the concrete. He voraciously consumes self-help books and online lectures, which he incorporates into his everyday processes. Focus on personal enthusiasm and motivation to lead projects, workshops, and teams is the bedrock of success. He refines these skills as often as possible at his local Advanced Toastmasters club, of which he is the President.

Building large scalable mission critical business applications on the web

Oct 26, 2016 11:00am MDT

Building small to medium size business applications with web technologies isn't terribly hard. It has been done lots of times and there is plenty of documentation on what works well and what doesn't work quite as well. Building really large, complex, distributed and mission critical business applications is quite something else though. And when you have to contend with poor mobile connectivity in 3rd world countries or out on the open ocean things become really challenging. That doesn't mean that it is impossible, it is just harder to architect and build. In this session Maurice de Beijer will share his experiences in building a globally deployed application used by thousands of people who depend on the availability and proper functioning of the application for a safe work environment.

React Internals

Oct 26, 2016 12:30pm MDT

Have you ever wanted to contribute to React but didn’t know how to get started? Or maybe you’ve wanted to write a custom renderer for another environment? While React’s public API has been remarkably stable and constrained over the past few years, the implementation has stayed a fuzzy black box. The good news it that things aren’t that scary. This talk will give you a working knowledge of the major ideas in how React Core is structured in addition to how core and renderers integrate. You will leave this talk empowered to engage with React Core—whether to implement a custom renderer or become a contributer to React itself.

About The Speaker

Upgrade Your Team: A Method for Building Better Teams

Oct 26, 2016 1:30pm MDT

When we talk about how our teams work, we usually lean on agile and hope they have a good team lead. However, Building an awesome team isn't just about having a good leader and regular retrospectives. Our teams need to be about helping programmers be better people and about building better long-term strategies that go beyond the sprint. This talk digs into how we can aim for the kinds of team and personal interactions we dream about.

Navigation in React Native: Examining and Understanding the Options

Oct 27, 2016 11:00am MDT

The React Native ecosystem is rapidly evolving, and with this evolution comes new and interesting ideas around routing and navigation in React Native. We will explore all of the current native solutions for routing and will also dive into other open source options, as well as Navigator Experimental, a new api that will probably replace the current Navigator.

Strengthening the Unicorns and Empowering Designers with React

Oct 27, 2016 12:30pm MDT

React has enabled Frontend developers to become better JavaScript developers. But better JavaScript creates a tougher environment for Designers. Find out a few ways we empowered our Design to stop writing jQuery and finally start writing React Components.

From Fatigue to Revenue-Generating

Oct 28, 2016 10:00am MDT

There are so many cool things happening in the Javascript realm right now. Cool frameworks, components, libraries, etc. Cool companies are releasing cool products for you to deploy at your own cool company. But cool products can also induce a word that we-all-hate-to-use: fatigue. Let’s get practical, spin up a project and get to work. Let’s go from fatigued engineers to revenue-generating ones.

Digging through React Source Code

Oct 28, 2016 11:00am MDT

Implementing a framework is just like inheriting code when joining a team or company. Hopefully the inherited code is foundationally sound and we don’t have to change much; so we can focus on building really great stuff on top of it. However, the most effective developers are the ones who can program abstractly at a high level while still fundamentally understanding what’s going on at that lower level. Let’s not be afraid to roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty. Let’s go digging through react source code!

Unifying Design and the Front-End with React and Atomic Components

Oct 28, 2016 1:30pm MDT

Designed by Brad Frost and Dave Olsen, atomic design is a “methodology for creating design systems” with five distinct levels or ‘building blocks’, which, when combined, create semantic, contextual relationships between interface objects. We’re going to explore how these organizing principles are a natural fit for building interfaces in React, and how with a few tweaks we can begin to contextualize entire interfaces semantically and intuitively, increasing productivity and reducing the noise that often exists between design and implementation.
