React and the path to sanity driven development

Antonio Capelo

As web developers, we’ve come a long way when it comes to Frontend.
We’ll time-travel a bit and remember what problems we used to tackle, how we overcame them and what issues we’re dealing with now.
I’ll be talking about imperative VS functional approaches to building UI, how we can use React to increase productivity and testability, and how that gets us closer to a sane frontend development.
(There’ll be a live demo. I may screw up.)
