Weekly Chat Show on Twitch
React Wednesdays is a weekly chat show with the best and brightest from the React world, hosted by KendoReact Developer Advocate TJ VanToll. New episodes stream live every Wednesday at 1:00 PM Eastern US time. You can add React Wednesdays to your Google calendar to get reminders for upcoming episodes.
On this episode of React Wednesdays we’re welcoming in Ryan Carniato, a member of the Marko team at eBay, and the author of Solid JS.
Ryan will demo Solid for us, and we’ll discuss how why React developers might want to check out Solid. This should be a fun one as Solid is growing in popularity, and I’m curious to see it in action. Join us!

On this episode of React Wednesdays we tried out GitHub Copilot, a fascinating new tool that uses AI to give you suggestions on the code you need to write.
And to help us try it out we invited back Paige Niedringhaus (@pniedri), a staff software engineer at Blues Wireless that’s going to help us discover all the crazy things Copilot can do.

Libraries like React abstract away DOM APIs so that you rarely ever have to deal with them. And while that’s mostly a good thing, knowing how the DOM APIs work can have some real benefits—for example when you need to write code that works on any app regardless of framework.
On this episode of React Wednesdays, TJ VanToll gave a hands-on demo of the most popular DOM APIs and showed how to select DOM nodes, move DOM nodes, attach event listeners, and more.

IoT apps may start with sensors, but they nearly always end-up on the web, where developers build digital dashboards to monitor and manage real-world devices.
On this episode of React Wednesdays, we welcomed Brandon Satrom, Director of DevEx & DevRel at Blues Wireless.
He showed us how to use React and friends to build dashboards and control interfaces for IoT applications.
This episode is handy, especially if you’re interested in integrating IoT devices into your React apps.

GraphQL is one of the fastest growing technologies in the front-end and React worlds. And who better to teach us about it than Eve Porcello (@eveporcello), author of Learning GraphQL, as well as this pretty awesome GraphQL workshop.
Eve is a previous guest of React Wednesdays. The first time around she taught us the basics of GraphQL, so this time around she got into some more advanced GraphQL content—including new GraphQL features like defer and stream.
