#react components

They are independent, reusable, and they let you build fast and eye-catching apps. Obviously, we’re talking about React components, which allow you to take your work to a whole another level. Tune in to the free online tutorials and masterclasses below to learn how to get the most out of their functionality and styling.

Off with Their Heads: Rise of the Headless Components
Aren't You Tired of Repeating Yourself? Tired of repeating the same code over and over again in your React projects? In this talk, we'll discover the power of headless components, a design pattern that separates the logic from the presentation layer, allowing you to create reusable and flexible UI components.
We'll explore how headless components can simplify your development process, saving you both time and effort. We'll examine popular headless component libraries and provide tips for integrating them into your projects. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced developer, join us to discover how headless components can help you streamline your React development and create high-quality, customizable UIs.

CCTDD: Cypress Component Test Driven Design
The first part of the talk will focus on a variety of patterns when using Cypress Component Testing and TDD to create React components. The code samples will be from Angular's Tour of Heroes to make the content relatable to a wider community. Currently I am working on a GitBook rewriting it in React using Cypress Component Tests, there should be plenty of content to distill into the talk.
The second part of the talk will focus on test strategies, types of testing and where to apply them, and finally compare
contrast them to the familiar industry approaches.
We will finish with key takeaways, sample application repos to help with learning, and rollout strategies.

Code Crimes For Good Component API
When working on component library for a specific company, you want to make it easy as possible for developers to follow the recommended path quickly. Sometimes, that’s not easy. But, when there’s a way, there’s a will! Come see some hacks I have added to our codebase to enable a good API

Composition vs Configuration: How to Build Flexible, Resilient and Future-proof Components
There are many ways of authoring components in React, and doing it right might not be that easy, especially when components get more complex. In this talk, you will learn how to build future-proof React components. We will cover two different approaches to building components - Composition and Configuration, to build the same component using both approaches and explore their advantages and disadvantages.

Find Out If Your Design System Is Better Than Nothing
Building a design system is not enough. Your dev team has to prefer it over one-off components and third-party libraries. Otherwise, the whole effort is a waste of time. Learn how to use static code analysis to measure if your design system wins over the internal competition and data-driven ways to improve your position.

Lifting Privacy and Accessibility Up
In React, Lifting State Up is a core concept. The aim of this talk is address two very important concerns in our landscape: privacy and accessibility and how we can achieve it and built in right from the components.
This talk will show my work with a little open source component ad its evolution to address privacy and accessibility with the help of community and how we as developers need to care and ship the best for our people using our tools down to the most simple component.

How to achieve layout composition in React
Using CSS in this age of components is difficult. Many tools have been created to help us with this problem, but they all fall short in the one problem that tooling can never solve: Which component should be in charge of which styles? In this talk, we will go over strategies on how to build layouts in a composable way.

Tame the Component Multiverse
Error state, loading state, awkward breakpoint, bad data, poor formatting, browser support. Every component is a multitude of challenges. How do you actually manage it? Disable the network — temporarily. Insert bad code — just for a minute. Paw at the edge of your screen. Hack local database fixtures to bits. Frontend development is a multiverse where dimensions like time and variation result in an infinite number of UI possibilities. In this talk, we'll use Storybook to progressively develop, test, document our work and tame the multiverse of our components.

AG Grid's New React Rendering Engine
AG Grid is the industry standard JavaScript datagrid for building data centric Business Applications. Recently the AG Grid team redesigned the grid to implement the React Rendering Engine in 100% React code. Given the complexity of a datagrid, this was a very challenging task. Hear from Niall, the founder of AG Grid, about the journey of this migration including how this was achieved, lessons learned along the way, and how it will impact your React applications using AG Grid.

Taking Component Driven One Step Further
Let's face it React is a way of building component driven applications. So technically we are all doing component driven development. But are we. Are our components really isolated, composed and tested in isolation or are they still coupled together just a little bit!! Let's take a look at how you can really be component driven so you can build, scale and reuse React components across all your React applications.

On the Origin of React
This talk looks at how components in React have evolved. We'll look back at previous versions of React, the headlining features, and how milestones like Fiber and Concurrent changed how we wrote React components. Some more details: I want to give attendees a glimpse of how React components looked at different major points in the history of React. Components written in 2013 don't look like components written in 2015 or today. This is a history of React that for some will be a walk down memory lane and for others, completely new information.

Components, Patterns and sh*t it’s Hard to Deal with
Everyone has a pattern library or dreams about having one. We went through conversations and the codification of our visual dictionary and then we ended up with a beautiful living document.
But what happens when we need to re-use our components and they don’t fit in the design? How do we re-use our patterns in slightly different use cases?
We have all the tech to make a front end really modular, we have techniques and methodologies which enabled us avoiding the bad parts of the languages we use. Every part of the puzzle seems to be falling in the right place.
Yet, sometimes we are struggling in handling the variations of our patterns in a reliable and maintainable way. Our codebase is getting filled with exceptions and overrides and refactoring of base patterns becomes impossible.
Not a recipe for success, more of a way to frame the problem, identify some ideas we tried and re-discuss the way we approach componentisation.

Testing the integrity of your React components by publishing in a private registry
The final stage of a react component is when it is being published and distributed. How can I ensure my packages won’t crash in production? This talk will help you to test your React components publishing them to a private registry and running End-to-End tests against them.

React Bricks: a CMS with visual editing based on React components
Headless CMSs are great for developers, but not for content creators.
React Bricks is the first CMS that is super-great for Developers (it's just React, backed solid APIs), for Content Creators (it keeps the visual editing experience of no-code tools like Wix) and for Designers (you can express your exact design system and be sure nobody will break it). I'll show you how it works!

Streamlining the Component Creation Process
React helped popularize the use of components to develop websites and apps. It’s a fantastic philosophy, but while components have made our websites better, the workflow for creating components hasn’t improved much. Let’s get rid of the tedious parts like wiring your components to your CMS, and let developers focus on the important parts. With Prismic Slice Machine, we’re giving developers the best workflow for creating components. In only a few minutes we’ll create a React component, wire it to our CMS, add it to Storybook, and push the component live on our site!
