We are still busy with drafting up the program. However, we do already know pretty sure that this program will be awesome. If you are up for new frontend tech, Reacticon is going to be for you!
Tailwind CSS is suddenly everywhere: Hyvä Themes is based on it, PWA Studio is working on compatibility and the Shopware 6 community has developed a theme as well. Tailwind stands for quick templating and great speed.
This tiny little JS framework makes it possible to add little JS effects to a server-side-rendered HTML page (like with PHP). It is often combined with Tailwind CSS, for performance reasons, but deserves its own spot in the Wall of Awesome Web Tools.
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.
When you professionalize your frontend development, end-to-end tests should be part of that. And amongst all E2E testing suites, Cypress is nowadays the most popular, for good reason: Its Node usage makes it easily configurable and its speed is awesome.
On October 4th, 2018, the second Reacticon took place: It was better organized than the first version, with various in-depth talks and announcements. Here are some links to the presentations that were given. Perhaps you can put it to good use.
