Making React Native Fast With Hermes

On this episode we chatted with Parashuram (@nparashuram) from Facebook. Parashuram is an engineering manager on Oculus, where he works on the React Native companion app, and on the headset itself, using React VR.

As part of that work, Parashuram gets to play with Hermes, the JavaScript engine designed to help React Native apps start up fast. I asked Parashuram important questions, like “Is working on VR as awesome as it sounds?”, and, “How can I be cool like you when I grow up?” I asked questions about Hermes too. And we got to see a really cool demo of a new Hermes profiler.

React Native and Dual-Screen Devices

Are you fascinated by phones with two screens? Have you ever wondered about what it’s like to build an app these devices? Are you very confused by folding phones and want to see one live?

If you answered yes to at least one of those questions—we’ve got a stream for you! On this episode we welcomed Craig Dunn and Keil Aloia from the Microsoft Surface Duo team. Crag and Keil demoed what it’s like to build React Native apps for the Duo, and then we asked them a bunch of questions—like, what is Android doing to help support dual-screen devices?

Let’s Make Remote Work Suck 45% Less

On this episode we solved remote working. Maybe. Or perhaps we had an interesting chat with Dan DiGangi (@dandigangi), Rob Ocel (@robocell) and Dan Skaggs (@dskaggs)—people that have either worked remote, managed remote workers, or both. We shared tips & tricks we’ve learned—like how to make friends with that squirrel you’ve been watching outside your window for the last five months.

Making Sense of Concurrent Mode and the React Scheduler With Matan Borenkraout

On this episode we chatted with Matan Borenkraout (@matanbobi) about React concurrent mode, the React scheduler APIs, and some of the new browser APIs for handling concurrency. Matan is good at this stuff because he wrote a blog post that includes “hidden magic” in the title, and anyone that knows about hidden magic has to be interesting.
