The heart has its reason(ML)

by Amélie Benoit

ReasonML is not a new language; it’s a new syntax powered by OCaml, and that is Javascript developer’s friendly. Going from JavaScript to ReasonML does not seem like an easy way to go; but building a React application with ReasonML becomes more and more accessible. I will explain the basic principles of ReasonML, demystify it through a live coding and present the benefits as well as the difficulties we encountered while using it.

Better UX and performance with React Suspense

by Romain Durand Saint Omer

Suspense is one of the best new React API that will solve real user problems. React Suspense already allows easier code-splitting through components' lazy loading. In the near future, it will also offer better handling of the different loading states (spinners, placeholders...) in our apps. And soon comes Suspense for data loading! In this talk, we'll go over the problems solved with the Suspense API through a live-coding and see how we can incrementally adopt it in a demo app.

Let’s Simplify Your Complex Forms

by Kenza Iraki

If you’ve built an app with React or React Native, chances are you’ve had to build at least one form. From profile screens to login pages, forms are unavoidable, and let’s be honest, they’re not very fun to build. For each field, you need to hold the value in the state of your component, implement onChange and onBlur handlers, implement validation… that makes for a lot of boilerplate, and that’s just for simple inputs. There are several libraries out there that attempt to simplify this process, from Redux Form, to React Form, to Formik, among others. In this talk, we’ll go over the existing solutions, how they stack up against each other, and what their limitations are.
