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

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 Wednesdays: Building An IoT Command Center

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.

React All-Day: Advanced GraphQL

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.

React All-Day: How Do Serverless Functions and the Jamstack Power up Your React Apps?

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.
