REACT Different - An introduction to building apps with React

Thursday 27 Feb 2014 from 6:00pm - 9:00pm

REACT is a Facebook & Instagram collaboration that many people choose to think of as the V in MVC.

React was built to solve one problem: building large applications with data that changes over time. To do this, React uses two main ideas.

It's Simple

Simply express how your app should look at any given point in time, and React will automatically manage all UI updates when your underlying data changes.

It's Declarative

When the data changes, React conceptually hits the "refresh" button, and knows to only update the changed parts.

Matt Sain left Sydney to join the team at Facebook and has made a special trip back home. He'll walk us through understanding the power behind this simple and declarative approach to coding UIs.
