React Wednesdays: Rewriting a JS Library That Runs on a Billion Devices Hide this title

On this episode of React Wednesdays we welcomed Netto Farah (@nettofarah), who helped rewrite an 8-year-old JavaScript analytics library that runs on billion devices every day.

Netto’s writeup on the rewrite is pretty amazing, and includes details like testing JavaScript on a Nintendo Wii, and how they went about testing on 160 different client-side destinations.

React Wednesday: DOM APIs for React Developers

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.

He showed us how to use React and friends to build dashboards and control interfaces for IoT applications.
