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.

Legend has it that if you say “Jamstack” three times and click your heels together, someone from Netlify will apparate to give you an awesome Jamstack talk. So we did that and got the amazing Jason Lengstorf ( @jlengstorf), host of Learn With Jason, and creator of the coolest menu I’ve ever seen (it’s in the top-right corner).
Jason live coded a React app and a custom serverless API from scratch *and* deployed it to production to show you how productive you can be with an optimized tech stack.
This is great to check out if you want to see just how productive you can be with the Jamstack and serverless functions.

Dave Ceddia (@dceddia), author of React State Management Libraries and How to Choose brought some practical advice. He compared and contrasted a few of the most popular choices to help you decide what to use in your own apps.
The React ecosystem is full of libraries (and opinions!) about how best to manage state in your apps. From plain React state, to Context, to Redux, to MobX, to specialized libraries like XState and react-query... there is no shortage of options.
