Meet our MC 👋 – React Day Berlin – Medium

Meet the #ReactDayBerlin MC @robinpokorny:  #ReactJS #Jest

  • I’ve been working with React for almost 3 years now, and it led me to also try other functional languages, so in this sense, React was really helpful for my career.What do you think is the future of web and mobile development?That’s difficult to say.
  • There are a few initiatives that come to mind: For one, there’s WebAssembly with which you can have some really low level language in the browser, and that’s great, because we’ll be able to create more powerful stuff compared to nowadays, when we’re mostly dependent on JavaScript.The other improvement could…
  • What’s your most awaited feature in testing tools?Obviously, Jest will never be completely automated, on the other hand, if you look at snapshot testing, that kind of is Jest is doing a major part of the job, generating something that you only manage and approve changes.
  • I know how difficult it is to organize, how much time and effort you need, and I’m really grateful that someone experienced is bringing a React conference to Berlin, so I’m excited.
  • I hope it’s gonna be a lot of fun and I get to meet new people, see how they use React in their jobs.Where do you get your inspiration for being an MC?This is not the first time for me, and ever since I was one some time ago, I…

An MC can often make or break a conference, and we couldn’t be more grateful to Robin for taking up this challenge! In the following interview, we discuss his career in software development and his…

From React to Elm

  • From React to Elm | Sebastian's Blog
  • I have noticed that with Elm my workflow has changed substantially.

  • At some point in 2015 I heard about Elm and I was intrigued.

  • This kind of safety is everywhere in Elm.

  • The Elm compiler will pick up every single problem and offer very nice error messages to help resolve the issues.

I have been working in React full time for probably two and a half years now. I work for https://staxapp.io which is large application mostly built on React for the Front end. During this time I have enjoyed working with React very much, it is a great library for building front end applications.
