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…

6 Pro Tips from React Developers — SitePoint

We've got 1 #reactjs tip from a pro devs for you. Watch  for all 6 tips.

  • Tip 1: Use functional components – Cam Jackson – If you don’t need internal state or lifecycle methods on your component, use a functional component instead.
  • A functional component is a pure JavaScript function that accept props as its argument and returns a React element.
  • Benefits of functional components: – – Less code – Easier to understand – The component is stateless, so you avoid accidentally storing state on a component you shouldn’t – The component is simpler to test – There’s no this binding – It’s easier to see where and when to extract…
  • Keep Tip 1 in mind and extract blocks of code into functional components whenever possible.
  • Tip 6: Use React Developer tools – Brian Gates – With React Developer Tools, available as a Google Chrome and Firefox extension, as well as a standalone app for other environments, you can quickly view your component hierarchy, inspect and edit a component’s props and state, and invoke methods on…

If you’re new to React, you could benefit from learning from React developers who’ve learned valuable lessons about the framework.

Best Javascript Frameworks: React, Redux, MobX, Vue

Best #Javascript frameworks: #ReactJS, #Redux, #MobX, #VueJS

  • You can use React alone for smaller projects, but larger projects need a framework to handle your application’s structure.
  • If you asked me which Javascript framework is the “best” framework, I would say Vue.
  • Just like Redux, MobX can be used with most Javascript frameworks, but it’s most commonly used with React.
  • You don’t need frameworks until your application’s codebase grows and becomes unmanageable.
  • If you’re new to Javascript frameworks, I would not recommend MobX because it doesn’t enforce a good application structure.

I often get asked “which Javascript framework should I use?” My answer is usually “it depends, but probably React.” jQuery jQuery is a Javascript library…
