Here is what you will learn

Reacticon is going to offer you the following awesomeness


React forms the foundation for Magento PWA Studio and gives Reacticon its name: It stands at the base of all that is discussed during this conference. Together with React, you'll also hear about Redux, routing, JSX and other fundamental React concepts.


While React is the base for many PWA providers for Magento, Vue is not to be underestimated. It is the base for Vue Storefront, but it quickly also becomes a strategy for agencies building their own solution. And with reason, Vue is just as good as an alternative to traditional frontends as React is.

PWA Studio

Magento is developing a toolbox - Magento PWA Studio - so that devs can vamp up their own PWA more easily. During Reacticon, we will not focus upon PWA Studio (which is likely announced during Imagine) but focus on the underlying technology instead.


Not only does JavaScript change the game on the frontend, there's also numerous opportunities when a Node middleware between e-commerce app and user is created: Caching in ElasticSearch, Server Side Rendering tasks, but also different connectors for different backend systems. Thanks to Node middleware, the choice becomes even wider.


While not necessarily part of the React framework, GraphQL is there be dealt with: It offers a JSON standard so that data (for instance, products, categories) is well-structured. The underlying backend (REST, CQRS) will not be dealt with though. Oh and there's a little thing called Apollo which is awesome.

Best practices

Even though PWAs in Magento are just starting to emerge, there are already best practices in the area of PWA development. The Magento team will share their own knowledge and you'll hear more on how to use which tools in which environment to streamline your own development flow.


Nothing is fixed in JavaScript. Things are changing on a weekly basis. Instead of focusing on a ready-made frontend, the Magento community is growing into a more diverse, flexible frontend with lots of options. We'll leave plenty of room for Q&A, discussions and debates.

Mixed views

This conference has React and PWA Studio at its core, but there is enough room to compare things with other technologies: The folks of and Vue StoreFront are joining to create a wealth of options and opportunities: Not business-oriented, but technical and in-depth.
