The Program

Here is what you will learn

Reacticon is going to offer you the following awesomeness

ReactJS

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.

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.

GraphQL

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.

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.

Discussions

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 Deity.io and Vue StoreFront are joining to create a wealth of options and opportunities: Not business-oriented, but technical and in-depth.
