React at Scale with Nx
Workshop Free
We're going to be using Nx and some its plugins to accelerate the development of this app.
Some of the things you'll learn:
- Generating a pristine Nx workspace
- Generating frontend React apps and backend APIs inside your workspace, with pre-configured proxies
- Creating shared libs for re-using code
- Generating new routed components with all the routes pre-configured by Nx and ready to go
- How to organize code in a monorepo
- Easily move libs around your folder structure
- Creating Storybook stories and e2e Cypress tests for your components
Table of contents: 
- Lab 1 - Generate an empty workspace
- Lab 2 - Generate a React app
- Lab 3 - Executors
- Lab 3.1 - Migrations
- Lab 4 - Generate a component lib
- Lab 5 - Generate a utility lib
- Lab 6 - Generate a route lib
- Lab 7 - Add an Express API
- Lab 8 - Displaying a full game in the routed game-detail component
- Lab 9 - Generate a type lib that the API and frontend can share
- Lab 10 - Generate Storybook stories for the shared ui component
- Lab 11 - E2E test the shared component

Node Monorepos with Nx
Workshop Free
Multiple apis and multiple teams all in the same repository can cause a lot of headaches, but Nx has you covered. Learn to share code, maintain configuration files and coordinate changes in a monorepo that can scale as large as your organisation does. Nx allows you to bring structure to a repository with hundreds of contributors and eliminates the CI slowdowns that typically occur as the codebase grows.
Table of contents:
- Lab 1 - Generate an empty workspace
- Lab 2 - Generate a node api
- Lab 3 - Executors
- Lab 4 - Migrations
- Lab 5 - Generate an auth library
- Lab 6 - Generate a database library
- Lab 7 - Add a node cli
- Lab 8 - Module boundaries
- Lab 9 - Plugins and Generators - Intro
- Lab 10 - Plugins and Generators - Modifying files
- Lab 11 - Setting up CI
- Lab 12 - Distributed caching

React at Scale with Nx
Workshop Free
The larger a codebase grows, the more difficult it becomes to maintain. All the informal processes of a small team need to be systematized and supported with tooling as the team grows. Come learn how Nx allows developers to focus their attention more on application code and less on tooling.
We’ll build up a monorepo from scratch, creating a client app and server app that share an API type library. We’ll learn how Nx uses executors and generators to make the developer experience more consistent across projects. We’ll then make our own executors and generators for processes that are unique to our organization. We’ll also explore the growing ecosystem of plugins that allow for the smooth integration of frameworks and libraries.
