Building High Performance React Applications

by Joe Karlsson | at MinneBar 13 | 3:00 – 3:50 in Nokomis | View Schedule

React is built with performance in mind. But when is React slow? In this talk we’ll discuss common bottlenecks in React and when you might be making your program work harder than it should. You will learn practical ways to speed up your real world React applications today.

This session is for developers curious to learn how to write fast React applications. You may or may not have already used React, but to get most out of this session, you should be familiar with JavaScript.
