Advanced Application Deployment Patterns with React Server Components (feat. a DIY RSC Framework)
WorkshopFree
The developer ecosystem is always moving fast and this year has proved no exception. React Server Components can offer a significant improvement to developer experience and to application performance. But I think it's fair to say that this new server-first paradigm can be tricky to wrap your head around!In the first half of this workshop, we'll explore React Server Components from the ground-up: building our own mini meta-framework to help us understand how RSCs work. We'll discover exactly what is produced by an RSC build and we'll connect those pieces together to form a full application.Next, we'll deploy it! Cloudflare have also had a busy year too — Smart Placement, in particular, is a new technology that we've developed which fits the RSC model perfectly. We'll explore why that makes sense for our workshop app, and we'll actually deploy it onto the Cloudflare Developer Platform.Finally, we'll build out our app a little further, using D1 (our serverless SQL database) to really show off the React Server Component's power when combined with Smart Placement.You should come away from this workshop with a greater understanding of how React Server Components work (both behind-the-scenes and also how you as a developer can use them day-to-day), as well as insight into some of the new deployment patterns that are now possible after recent innovations in the platform space.

From Todo App to B2B SaaS with Next.js and Clerk
WorkshopFree
If you’re like me, you probably have a million side-project ideas, some that could even make you money as a micro SaaS, or could turn out to be the next billion dollar startup. But how do you know which ones? How do you go from an idea into a functioning product that can be put into the hands of paying customers without quitting your job and sinking all of your time and investment into it? How can your solo side-projects compete with applications built by enormous teams and large enterprise companies?
Building rich SaaS products comes with technical challenges like infrastructure, scaling, availability, security, and complicated subsystems like auth and payments. This is why it’s often the already established tech giants who can reasonably build and operate products like that. However, a new generation of devtools are enabling us developers to easily build complete solutions that take advantage of the best cloud infrastructure available, and offer an experience that allows you to rapidly iterate on your ideas for a low cost of $0. They take all the technical challenges of building and operating software products away from you so that you only have to spend your time building the features that your users want, giving you a reasonable chance to compete against the market by staying incredibly agile and responsive to the needs of users.
In this 3 hour workshop you will start with a simple task management application built with React and Next.js and turn it into a scalable and fully functioning SaaS product by integrating a scalable database (PlanetScale), multi-tenant authentication (Clerk), and subscription based payments (Stripe). You will also learn how the principles of agile software development and domain driven design can help you build products quickly and cost-efficiently, and compete with existing solutions.

React Performance Debugging
Workshop
Ivan’s first attempts at performance debugging were chaotic. He would see a slow interaction, try a random optimization, see that it didn't help, and keep trying other optimizations until he found the right one (or gave up).
Back then, Ivan didn’t know how to use performance devtools well. He would do a recording in Chrome DevTools or React Profiler, poke around it, try clicking random things, and then close it in frustration a few minutes later. Now, Ivan knows exactly where and what to look for. And in this workshop, Ivan will teach you that too.
Here’s how this is going to work. We’ll take a slow app → debug it (using tools like Chrome DevTools, React Profiler, and why-did-you-render) → pinpoint the bottleneck → and then repeat, several times more. We won’t talk about the solutions (in 90% of the cases, it’s just the ol’ regular useMemo() or memo()). But we’ll talk about everything that comes before – and learn how to analyze any React performance problem, step by step.
(Note: This workshop is best suited for engineers who are already familiar with how useMemo() and memo() work – but want to get better at using the performance tools around React. Also, we’ll be covering interaction performance, not load speed, so you won’t hear a word about Lighthouse 🤐)

Build a Universal Reactive Data Library with Starbeam
WorkshopFree
This session will focus on Starbeam's universal building blocks. We'll use Starbeam to build a data library that works in multiple frameworks.We'll write a library that caches and updates data, and supports relationships, sorting and filtering.Rather than fetching data directly, it will work with asynchronously fetched data, including data fetched after initial render. Data fetched and updated through web sockets will also work well.All of these features will be reactive, of course.Imagine you filter your data by its title, and then you update the title of a record to match the filter: any output relying on the filtered data will update to reflect the updated filter.In 90 minutes, you'll build an awesome reactive data library and learn a powerful new tool for building reactive systems. The best part: the library works in any framework, even though you don't think about (or depend on) any framework when you built it.
Table of contents- Storing a Fetched Record in a Cell- Storing multiple records in a reactive Map- Reactive iteration is normal iteration- Reactive filtering is normal filtering- Fetching more records and updating the Map- Reactive sorting is normal sorting (is this getting a bit repetitive?)- Modelling cache invalidation as data- Bonus: reactive relationships

Designing Effective Tests With React Testing Library
Workshop
React Testing Library is a great framework for React component tests because there are a lot of questions it answers for you, so you don’t need to worry about those questions. But that doesn’t mean testing is easy. There are still a lot of questions you have to figure out for yourself: How many component tests should you write vs end-to-end tests or lower-level unit tests? How can you test a certain line of code that is tricky to test? And what in the world are you supposed to do about that persistent act() warning?
In this three-hour workshop we’ll introduce React Testing Library along with a mental model for how to think about designing your component tests. This mental model will help you see how to test each bit of logic, whether or not to mock dependencies, and will help improve the design of your components. You’ll walk away with the tools, techniques, and principles you need to implement low-cost, high-value component tests.
Table of contents- The different kinds of React application tests, and where component tests fit in- A mental model for thinking about the inputs and outputs of the components you test- Options for selecting DOM elements to verify and interact with them- The value of mocks and why they shouldn’t be avoided- The challenges with asynchrony in RTL tests and how to handle them
Prerequisites- Familiarity with building applications with React- Basic experience writing automated tests with Jest or another unit testing framework- You do not need any experience with React Testing Library- Machine setup: Node LTS, Yarn

Back to the Roots With Remix
Workshop
The modern web would be different without rich client-side applications supported by powerful frameworks: React, Angular, Vue, Lit, and many others. These frameworks rely on client-side JavaScript, which is their core. However, there are other approaches to rendering. One of them (quite old, by the way) is server-side rendering entirely without JavaScript. Let's find out if this is a good idea and how Remix can help us with it?
Prerequisites- Good understanding of JavaScript or TypeScript- It would help to have experience with React, Redux, Node.js and writing FrontEnd and BackEnd applications- Preinstall Node.js, npm- We prefer to use VSCode, but also cloud IDEs such as codesandbox (other IDEs are also ok)

Deploying React Native Apps in the Cloud
WorkshopFree
Deploying React Native apps manually on a local machine can be complex. The differences between Android and iOS require developers to use specific tools and processes for each platform, including hardware requirements for iOS. Manual deployments also make it difficult to manage signing credentials, environment configurations, track releases, and to collaborate as a team.
Appflow is the cloud mobile DevOps platform built by Ionic. Using a service like Appflow to build React Native apps not only provides access to powerful computing resources, it can simplify the deployment process by providing a centralized environment for managing and distributing your app to multiple platforms. This can save time and resources, enable collaboration, as well as improve the overall reliability and scalability of an app.
In this workshop, you’ll deploy a React Native application for delivery to Android and iOS test devices using Appflow. You’ll also learn the steps for publishing to Google Play and Apple App Stores. No previous experience with deploying native applications is required, and you’ll come away with a deeper understanding of the mobile deployment process and best practices for how to use a cloud mobile DevOps platform to ship quickly at scale.

Node.js: Landing your first Open Source contribution & how the Node.js project works
Workshop
This workshop aims to give you an introductory module on the general aspects of Open Source. Follow Claudio Wunder from the OpenJS Foundation to guide you on how the governance model of Node.js work, how high-level decisions are made, and how to land your very first contribution. At the end of the workshop, you'll have a general understanding of all the kinds of work that the Node.js project does (From Bug triage to deciding the Next-10 years of Node.js) and how you can be part of the bigger picture of the JavaScript ecosystem.

The following technologies and soft skills might be needed):
  - Basic understanding of Git & GitHub interface
  - Professional/Intermediate English knowledge for communication and for allowing you to contribute to the Node.js org (As all contributions require communication within GitHub Issues/PRs)
  - The workshop requires you to have a computer (Otherwise, it becomes difficult to collaborate, but tablets are also OK) with an IDE setup, and we recommend VS Code and we recommend the GitHub Pull Requests & Issues Extension for collaborating with Issues and Pull Requests straight from the IDE.

The following themes will be covered during the workshop:
- A recap of some of GitHub UI features, such as GitHub projects and GitHub Issues
- We will cover the basics of Open Source and go through Open Source Guide
- We will recap Markdown
- We will cover Open Source governance and how the Node.js project works and talk about the OpenJS Foundation
  - Including all the ways one might contribute to the Node.js project and how their contributions can be valued
- During this Workshop, we will cover Issues from the nodejs/nodejs.dev as most of them are entry-level and do not require C++ or deep technical knowledge of Node.js.
  - Having that said, we still recommend enthusiast attendees that want to challenge themselves to "Good First Issues" from the nodejs/node (core repository) if they wish.
  - We're going to allow each attendee to choose an issue or to sit together with other attendees and tackle issues together with Pair Programming through VS Code Live Share feature
    - We can also do Zoom breakrooms for people that want to collaborate together
  - Claudio will be there to give support to all attendees and, of course, answer any questions regarding Issues and technical challenges they might face
  - The technologies used within nodejs/nodejs.dev are React/JSX, Markdown, MDX and Gatsby. (No need any knowledge of Gatsby, as most of the issues are platform agnostic)
- By the end of the Workshop, we'll collect all (make a list) the contributors who successfully opened a Pull Request (even if it's a draft) and recognise their participation on Social media.

Decoupling in Practice
WorkshopFree
Deploying decoupled and microservice applications isn't just a problem to be solved on migration day. Moving forward with these architectures depends completely on what your team's workflow experience will look like day-to-day post-migration.
The hardest part of this can often be the number of vendors involved. Some targets are best suited for specific frontend frameworks, while others are more so for CMSs and custom APIs. Unfortunately their assumptions, workflows, APIs, and notions of security can be quite different. While there are certain advantages to relying on a strict contract between apps – where backend and frontend teams work is limited to a single vendor – this isn't always realistic. This could be because you're still experimenting, or simply the size of your organization doesn't allow for this kind of specialization just yet.
In this workshop, you'll have a chance to explore a different, single vendor approach to microservices using Strapi and Next.js as an example. You'll deploy each app individually, establishing a workflow from the start that simplifies customization, introducing new features, investigating performance issues, and even framework interchangeability from the start.

What the Heck Do "Declarative" and "Reactive" Actually Mean?
Workshop
You’ve built apps with frontend frameworks before? - Then you surely came across the terms ""declarative"" and “reactive”. Since React got released in 2013, most modern UI frameworks or libraries want to be it, but what do these terms actually mean? And what’s the difference between “declarative” and “imperative” code?
It took me a long time to grasp these concepts - but when I finally did, I saw frontend frameworks in a totally new light! And I hope you will feel the same after this talk.
In this very interactive workshop, we’ll delve into a lot of code examples to deeply understand the terms - with examples using vanilla JavaScript, React and Svelte. But the learnings will be universal. After this talk you’ll be able to confidently join discussions about the ""declarative"" and ""reactive"" nature of any new package or library.

Designing Effective Tests with React Testing Library
Workshop
React Testing Library is a great framework for React component tests because there are a lot of questions it answers for you, so you don’t need to worry about those questions. But that doesn’t mean testing is easy. There are still a lot of questions you have to figure out for yourself: How many component tests should you write vs end-to-end tests or lower-level unit tests? How can you test a certain line of code that is tricky to test? And what in the world are you supposed to do about that persistent act() warning?
In this three-hour workshop we’ll introduce React Testing Library along with a mental model for how to think about designing your component tests. This mental model will help you see how to test each bit of logic, whether or not to mock dependencies, and will help improve the design of your components. You’ll walk away with the tools, techniques, and principles you need to implement low-cost, high-value component tests.
Prerequisites:- Familiarity with building applications with React- Basic experience writing automated tests with Jest or another unit testing framework- You do not need any experience with React Testing Library- Machine setup: Node LTS, Yarn

Building for Web & Mobile with Expo
Workshop
We know that React is for the web and React Native is for Android and iOS. But have you heard of react-native-web—for writing an app for Android, iOS, and the web in one codebase? Just like React Native abstracts away the details of iOS and Android, React Native Web extracts away the details of the browser as well. This opens up the possibility of even more code sharing across platforms.
In this workshop you’ll walk through setting up the skeleton for a React Native Web app that works great and looks awesome. You can use the resulting codebase as a foundation to build whatever app you like on top of it, using the React paradigms and many JavaScript libraries you’re used to. You might be surprised how many types of app don’t really require a separate mobile and web codebase!
What's included1. Setting up drawer and stack navigators with React Navigation, including responsiveness2. Configuring React Navigation with URLs3. Setting up React Native Paper including styling the React Navigation drawer and headers4. Setting up a custom color theme that supports dark mode5. Configuring favicons/app icons and metadata6. What to do when you can’t or don’t want to provide the same functionality on web and mobile
Prerequisites- Familiarity with building applications with either React or React Native. You do not need to know both.- Machine setup: Node LTS, Yarn, be able to successfully create and run a new Expo app following the instructions on https://docs.expo.dev/get-started/create-a-new-app/

Rapid UI Development in React: Harnessing Custom Component Libraries & Design Systems
Workshop
In this workshop, we'll take a tour through the most effective approaches to building out scalable UI components that enhance developer productivity and happiness :-) This will involve a mix of hands-on exercises and presentations, covering the more advanced aspects of the popular styled-components library, including theming and implementing styled-system utilities via style props for rapid UI development, and culminating in how you can build up your own scalable custom component library.
We will focus on both the ideal scenario---where you work on a greenfield project---along with tactics to incrementally adopt a design system and modern approaches to styling in an existing legacy codebase with some tech debt (often the case!). By the end of the workshop, you should feel that you have an understanding of the tradeoffs between different approaches and feel confident to start implementing the options available to move towards using a design system based component library in the codebase you work on.
Prerequisites: - Familiarity with and experience working on large react codebases- A good understanding of common approaches to styling in React

Introduction to React Native Testing Library
Workshop
Are you satisfied with your test suites? If you said no, you’re not alone—most developers aren’t. And testing in React Native is harder than on most platforms. How can you write JavaScript tests when the JS and native code are so intertwined? And what in the world are you supposed to do about that persistent act() warning? Faced with these challenges, some teams are never able to make any progress testing their React Native app, and others end up with tests that don’t seem to help and only take extra time to maintain.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. React Native Testing Library (RNTL) is a great library for component testing, and with the right mental model you can use it to implement tests that are low-cost and high-value. In this three-hour workshop you’ll learn the tools, techniques, and principles you need to implement tests that will help you ship your React Native app with confidence. You’ll walk away with a clear vision for the goal of your component tests and with techniques that will help you address any obstacle that gets in the way of that goal.you will know:- The different kinds React Native tests, and where component tests fit in- A mental model for thinking about the inputs and outputs of the components you test- Options for selecting text, image, and native code elements to verify and interact with them- The value of mocks and why they shouldn’t be avoided- The challenges with asynchrony in RNTL tests and how to handle them- Options for handling native functions and components in your JavaScript tests
Prerequisites:- Familiarity with building applications with React Native- Basic experience writing automated tests with Jest or another unit testing framework- You do not need any experience with React Native Testing Library- Machine setup: Node 16.x or 18.x, Yarn, be able to successfully create and run a new Expo app following the instructions on https://docs.expo.dev/get-started/create-a-new-app/

Best Practices and Patterns for Managing API Requests and States
Workshop
With the rise of frameworks, such as React, Vue or Angular, the way websites are built changed over the years. Modern applications can be very dynamic and perform multiple API requests to populate a website with fresh content or submit new data to a server. However, this paradigm shift introduced new problems developers need to deal with. When an API request is pending, succeeds, or fails, a user should be presented with meaningful feedback. Other problems can comprise API data caching or syncing the client state with the server. All of these problems require solutions that need to be coded, but these can quickly get out of hand and result in a codebase that is hard to extend and maintain. In this workshop, we will cover how to handle API requests, API states and request cancellation by implementing an API Layer and combining it with React-Query.
Prerequisites: To make the most out of this workshop, you should be familiar with React and Hooks, such as useState, useEffect, etc. If you would like to code along, make sure you have Git, a code editor, Node, and npm installed on your machine.

Remix Fundamentals
WorkshopFree
Building modern web applications is riddled with complexity And that's only if you bother to deal with the problems
Tired of wiring up onSubmit to backend APIs and making sure your client-side cache stays up-to-date? Wouldn't it be cool to be able to use the global nature of CSS to your benefit, rather than find tools or conventions to avoid or work around it? And how would you like nested layouts with intelligent and performance optimized data management that just works™?
Remix solves some of these problems, and completely eliminates the rest. You don't even have to think about server cache management or global CSS namespace clashes. It's not that Remix has APIs to avoid these problems, they simply don't exist when you're using Remix. Oh, and you don't need that huge complex graphql client when you're using Remix. They've got you covered. Ready to build faster apps faster?
At the end of this workshop, you'll know how to:- Create Remix Routes- Style Remix applications- Load data in Remix loaders- Mutate data with forms and actions

Tests rely on many conditions and are considered to be slow and flaky. On the other hand - end-to-end tests can give the greatest confidence that your app is working. And if done right - can become an amazing tool for boosting developer velocity.
Detox is a gray-box end-to-end testing framework for mobile apps. Developed by Wix to solve the problem of slowness and flakiness and used by React Native itself as its E2E testing tool.
Join me on this workshop to learn how to make your mobile end-to-end tests with Detox rock.

Passwordless Auth to Servers: hands on with ASA
WorkshopFree
These days, you don't need a separate password for every website you log into. Yet thanks to tech debt and tradition, many DevOps professionals are still wrangling a host of SSH keys to access the servers where we sometimes need to be. With modern OAuth, a single login and second factor to prove your identity are enough to securely get you into every service that you're authorized to access. What if SSHing into servers was that easy? In this workshop, we'll use Okta's Advanced Server Access tool (formerly ScaleFT) to experience one way that the dream of sending SSH keys the way of the password has been realized.
- we'll discuss how ASA works and when it's the right tool for the job- we'll walk through setting up a free trial Okta account to use ASA from, and configuring the ASA gateway and server on Linux servers- we'll then SSH into our hosts with the ASA clients without needing to supply an SSH key from our laptops- we'll review the audit logs of our SSH sessions to examine what commands were run

Rethinking Server State with React Query
Workshop
The distinction between server state and client state in our applications might be a new concept for some, but it is very important to understand when delivering a top-notch user experience. Server state comes with unique problems that often sneak into our applications surprise like:
- Sharing Data across apps- Caching & Persistence- Deduping Requests- Background Updates- Managing “Stale” Data- Pagination & Incremental fetching- Memory & Garbage Collection- Optimistic Updates
Traditional “Global State” managers pretend these challenges don’t exist and this ultimately results in developers building their own on-the-fly attempts to mitigate them.
In this workshop, we will build an application that exposes these issues, allows us to understand them better, and finally turn them from challenges into features using a library designed for managing server-state called React Query.
By the end of the workshop, you will have a better understanding of server state, client state, syncing asynchronous data (mouthful, I know), and React Query.

Getting Started with Suspense and Concurrent Rendering in React
Workshop
React keeps on evolving and making hard things easier for the average developer.
One case, where React was not particularly hard but very repetitive, is working with AJAX request. There is always the trinity of loading, success and possible error states that had to be handled each time. But no more as the `<Suspense />` component makes life much easier.
Another case is performance of larger and complex applications. Usually React is fast enough but with a large application rendering components can conflict with user interactions. Concurrent rendering will, mostly automatically, take care of this.
You will learn all about using <Suspense />, showing loading indicators and handling errors. You will see how easy it is to get started with concurrent rendering. You will make suspense even more capable combining it with concurrent rendering, the `useTransition()` hook and the <SuspenseList /> component.

Build an IoT App With InfluxDB
Workshop
InfluxDB is an open source time series database that empowers developers to build IoT, analytics and monitoring software. It is purpose-built to handle the massive volumes and countless sources of time-stamped data produced sensors, applications and infrastructure.
This workshop showcases a fully functional sample application called IoT Center that is built on InfluxDB. This application demonstrates the capabilities of the InfluxDB platform to develop a JavaScript-enabled time-series-based application. It collects, stores and displays a set of values that include temperature, humidity, pressure, CO2 concentration, air quality, as well as provide GPS coordinates from a set of IoT devices. With this data stored in InfluxDB, the application can query this data for display as well as write data back into the database.
This hands-on workshop will show students how to install this open source code to learn how to query and write to InfluxDB using the InfluxDB JavaScript client, and gain familiarity with the Flux lang query language which is designed for querying, analyzing, and acting on time series data. And finally, collect and visualize performance data of the Node JS application.
