Top 8 React meetup videos in 2020

Luckily for all you React enthusiasts, 2020 had a lot to offer in terms of React meetup videos. To make your lives easier once more, we’ve spent a few hours hand-picking all the best React talks and meetup videos that you surely wouldn’t want to miss out on.

So, have a look at our selection below to stay up to date with React, React Native, and so much more!

First React App & Building a testing tool for websites

Here are two presentations from React Vancouver. First up: “First React App” by Hyesun An. She tells the story of making a full-stack React app during a pandemic. Then, Brad Arsenault talks about Kwola, a reinforcement learning based testing tool for websites.

Adding persistence to React Apps by leveraging serverless functions

Tell Firebase to Go Fly a Kite: Leveraging Serverless Functions to Add Persistence to your React App (or any app) on Netlify or Verce by Brett Haymaker.

Getting React apps on the web quickly

Getting your React app on the web quickly without having to setup testing, transpilers, or development servers by Giraldo Rosales.

GraphQL and React – Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together | Adron Hall

As a full-stack engineer with a bias towards the database…and a career spent working with and evangelizing database and distributed systems…why GraphQL? In this talk, Adron will share some of his personal journey with React, GraphQL, their respective communities, and his point-of-view on the future.

React Components and How To Style Them | Jemima Abu

A comparative analysis between four methods of styling React components from inline styling to Styled-Components. This talk is best suited to beginner developers.

React View | Vojtech Miksu

So you built a component library. Congrats! I am sure it is awesome but did you put the same effort into its documentation? Component libraries tend to have giant APIs, dozens of components, hundreds of props and thousands of permutations. That is a lot of information to unpack.

We could make the documentation very long or… super interactive. We combined component previews, API documentation, props editing and code editing into a single seamless experience. You can quickly explore various settings of each component while watching the code write itself.

This talk will show you how to leverage common tools and concepts such as Prettier, babel and AST transformations to build the documentation that can literally work for you.

Flipper: The React Native Devtool | Michel Weststrate

Are you a React Native developer? Have you always been longing for the rich ecosystem of developer tooling that exists for the web in e.g. Chrome and Firefox? Flipper is Facebooks internal, extensible mobile devtool platform, used by the mobile devs that work on the Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and many more apps.

Recently the React Native and Flipper team have been working hard to add first class support for React Native as well. This means that monitoring network traffic and performance, using the React Devtools, inspecting device and application logs or even debugging JavaScript can now can now be conveniently done using one coherent tool.

And best of all: Flipper is extensible, so let’s build our own plugin while at it!

TypeScript + React | Ben Ilegbodu

TypeScript is a JavaScript superset that compiles down to vanilla JavaScript and has become increasingly popular. TypeScript proponents proclaim that it eliminates entire classes of bugs that affect our applications. But what exactly are those bugs? Which ones are particular to building React components and applications? Is TypeScript worth the learning curve?

In this session geared towards devs with prior experience building React applications, let’s answer those questions. We’ll walk through the common bugs that infect our apps and learn how the use of strong types with TypeScript can help prevent them.
