Norbert de Langen: Storybook has reached outside the React ecosystem & will continue to do so

Read our interview with @NorbertdeLangen about his recent work on Storybook:  #ReactJS

  • We strongly believe the problems Storybook solves are not unique to any single platform.Of course, we’re also going to be improving the features and performance of Storybook, and create new ways for you to extend Storybook and customise it for your use-case.
  • Finally: we’re really seeing the community getting involved with Storybook, we get pull requests making Storybook better in all sorts of ways we didn’t expect.
  • So who knows what will be included in the next release?Has rebranding from React Storybook changed its culture or direction?The culture certainly changed — now the community itself is driving Storybook forward.
  • If anything, I’d say our focus on helping the community co-maintain Storybook has had a major impact.Do your company clients adapt React style guides to their workflow?Yes in fact, most of them do.What do you think is the future of web and mobile development?Who knows?
  • I’m super excited about native support for ES modules in the modern browsers and Node.js!What are your favorite components, libraries, or community projects?Babel, Webpack, React, Glamorous, Yarn, Express, ESlint, Prettier, Jest, GraphQL.I’m also a huge fan of community-driven meetups.Pick one and tell us why: Redux or MobX?It depends.

Today, we’re opening our new series of interviews for React Day Berlin. Since Norbert de Langen is going to speak about building Storybook in Berlin in December, we decided to ask him a couple of…

  • Review our standards and practices so that you can be familiar with important topics like milestones, the Elon-Musk-bot, communication guidelines and how NOT to make your team-mates angry.Table of ContentsWhy the Chingu Voyage cohort exists [1 min]Schedule [1 min]Standards + The Builder’s Pledge [3 min]Essential skills to learn before you start [10–200 min]The Build-2-Learn Project Roadmap (Acts+Milestones) [1 min]Why the Chingu-Voyage cohort existsThe Chingu-Voyage cohort exists to give motivated learners a community, environment and challenge to accelerate their skills, be accountable, as well as an opportunity to gain experience in a remote dev team.Why is this important?There are more people learning to code (and competing for jobs) than ever before.
  • Put simply: the Voyage cohort is where people build projects.Voyage-2’s ScheduleSeptember 15 — Prep Packet goes outSeptember 21 — Voyage-2 StartsSeptember 24 — Teams launchOctober 3 — Act 1 finished due-dateOctober 10–15 — Sprint 1 due-dateSprints will continue until the project is finished.November 10 — Showcase for finished MVPsSome projects may take more time to complete.
  • Those practices (seen below) are now our standards.All members are expected to do a check-in twice a week (NEW TO VOYAGE-2)The check-in style we encourage is:What I did in the last few days?What I’m working on in the next few days?Is there anything blocking my path?I can’t stress enough how important consistent communication is for remote dev projects.
  • For anyone new to a Chingu B2L project, this will probably be the biggest skill you learn (regardless of what your team builds).
  • The Build-2-Learn Project Roadmap (Acts+Milestones)In Voyage-2, each Build-to-Learn project will have 3 Acts and each act with have 5–10 milestones for the team to complete before they can get to the next act.Act 1 — Project SetupAct 2 — Code sprints (repeat until MVP)Act 3 — Closure+ShowcaseACT 1 = Start button, ACT 2 = the circle, ACT 3 = the mountain-topNote: when the cohort launches you’ll get a document that shows in detail what each milestone is, including any resources we have for that milestone, any examples of the milestone from former teams and due dates for each Act.That’s it, you’re all set!Have fun preparing for the Voyage-2 cohort!
