Rethinking best practices - JSConf.eu #

"At Facebook and Instagram, we’re trying to push the limits of what’s possible on the web with React. My talk will start with a brief introduction to the framework, and then dive into three controversial topics: Throwing out the notion of templates and building views with JavaScript, “re-rendering” your entire application when your data changes, and a lightweight implementation of the DOM and events." -- Pete Hunt

Secrets of the Virtual DOM - MtnWest JS #

"In this talk I’ll be discussing why we built a virtual DOM, how it compares to other systems, and its relevance to the future of browser technologies." -- Pete Hunt

Going big with React #

"On paper, all those JS frameworks look promising: clean implementations, quick code design, flawless execution. But what happens when you stress test Javascript? What happens when you throw 6 megabytes of code at it? In this talk, we'll investigate how React performs in a high stress situation, and how it has helped our team build safe code on a massive scale."
