React Component Architecture With Jenn Creighton

On this episode of React Wednesdays, we’re chatting about React component architecture, a well-solved problem that no one struggles with in any of their applications. Or... not.

Which is why we invited Jenn Creighton (@gurlcode), a software engineer, a host of the awesome single-threaded podcast, and an experienced speaker on the topic of component architecture. Jenn will demo some of her architecture tips and tricks for us live, so join us!

Building Native Audio Apps in JS With Nick Thompson

If you’re ever had the misfortune of working with native audio apps, you’re probably familiar with C++ and pain. But that might be changing due to Elementary Audio, a new project that makes native audio APIs accessible to JavaScript developers.

And who better to show us how it all works than the project’s author, Nick Thompson. On this episode Nick will explain what the project is, and then demo a few examples for us live.

Join us! And bring questions about building audio applications.

Let’s Learn Solid JS With Ryan Carniato

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.

Solid is a declarative, efficient, and flexible JavaScript library for building user interfaces. It has some features that are similar to React (component model, hooks), but also some that are quite different—for example Solid doesn’t use a virtual DOM.

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!

An Interview With the Creators of Realize

We spoke with the creators of Realize, a new debugging tool that allows React developers to view their component tree and state. The tool is a Chrome and Firefox extension, so we also spent some time discussing the “fun” parts of building browser extensions 🙂
