🎀 Talks

Gatsby πŸ’– Netlify CMS

Manage your website/portfolio/blog/ name it... content with ease.

In this talk I will show you how to: - set up Gatsby with Netlify CMS. - add content via Netlify CMS admin panel with different widgets (text, markdown, select, etc.). - query data with graphql layer in Gatsby and render the content. - workflow pushing new changes to the website.

☞ Karolis Stulgys. Self taught and failure tolerant frontend engineer.

Test Driven Development with React

Test Driven Development emphasises quick iterations for your code. You won't code faster, but perhaps you will be more accurate.

TDD has been around for a while and I have avoided it for most of my career. I decided for the month of October all code I write I will do TDD. The result was much more positive than I thought it would be and made me rethink how I code. This talk covers the testing pyramid, the importance of unit testing and the tools I use for testing React. As part of the talk I will work through a trivial example to demonstrate how to do TDD.

☞ Leon Bezuidenhout. A backend developer who became a full-stack developer three years ago when I was first exposed to React.

Concurrent Mode

_ An introduction to the use cases, patterns and gotchas in React's Concurrent Mode

After a brief explanation of what Concurrent mode is, we'll build an example application which progressively introduces each of the API's while showing what benefits they bring, the patterns we can leverage, and the gotchas to watch out for.

☞ Mike Hazell. A dad. Oh and I also write code sometimes.
