Get more out of MDX with this one weird trick

Have you been using the new hotness that is mdx (react components RIGHT IN YOUR MARKDOWN)? Have you been eyeing it with an ambition of getting this very neat technology into your projects somehow? Well I am here to, if not discourage you, then temper your expectations, explain some of the pitfalls MDX can create, and provide some solid recommendations having worked with MDX on when to use it, and when not to.

☞ Ben Conolly. I am a Developer from Thinkmill, with a passion for documentation, design systems, monorepos, and singing.

CSS-in-JS Panel with Max Stoiber & Mitchell Hamilton

Progressive Server Rendering with React

_Progressive server rendering bridges the gap between slow client-side rendering and api latent full server side rendering. It lets you render the critical above-the-fold content of the website faster on slow networks and chunk the rest of the website progressively from the server to the client bridging the pros of both client and full server rendering and weeding out the downsides from both.

This talk will highlight the benefits of progressive server side rendering and how it can be done in a React application. Target audience: React devs with intermediate knowledge on server rendering.

☞ Dinesh Pandiyan. I am a developer at Thinkmill. I spend most of my time building and breaking things in web dev, developer tools and web perf.
