React Amsterdam is a celebration of good things coming together: ReactJS that rocks and spring in Amsterdam that blossoms
React Amsterdam is a full day two-track conference on all things React, gathering Front End developers across the globe in the tech heart of Europe. React Amsterdam is a heir to the biggest React community in BeNeLux and we have our priorities straight: only the highest quality content with careful balance of practical and visionary talks. React Amsterdam 2017 will take place in the Kromhouthal - former shipbuilding factory at a waterfront of Amsterdam City center.
Workshops day, 20 of April
For those willing to get up to speed with React & React Native before the main conference day, and learn from top industry trainers - we prepared 2 full-day workshops. Separate and combined tickets available via main order form.

Styling React/ReactNative Applications
Fun With Fiber Custom Renderers
In this talk I will be detailing how to create custom renderers using the new Fiber architecture, and showing examples exploring some fun things you can do with them.
How Pinterest switched their template rendering engine to React
A deep dive into how Pinterest migrated their web infrastructure to serve React pages, which required moving a huge amount of code without breaking the site. Details on the legacy stack (Django web server and Nunjucks/Jinja template rendering) moving to Node and migrating our templates to React.
Pushing bugs to prod responsibly with React and Redux
The question is not how to avoid bugs when building software. There will always be bugs. The question is how quickly can you recover from them. Let's go through some ways you can give your app the ability to notify you of these bugs before your users do using React and Redux. Start pushing bugs to prod responsibly.
A real-world Relay application in production
This is the tale of how we, at Balsamiq, rolled out our new web-app, from greenfield to production. A real-world application with real-time collaboration, built using Relay, Redux, React-rendered html emails, node.js, Redis, etc., running on AWS using Convox. Even at small/medium scale, if you're serious about building a good product you will eventually have to build a complex stack. I will share the details of the services we use, how we make them fit together and what we learned in the process.
Test like it's 2017
Testing UIs has always been a hard job. In the components era, there are new tools and solutions available that transform completely the way we approach testing. From snapshots, through end-to-end frameworks, to style guide testing. In this talk, we'll see some modern (and creative) testing solutions.
Flow Typing a React Codebase
Forbes will describe common pitfalls using Flow, and cover some little known tips and tricks for adding types to functions that at first glance might not look like you can add types to them. Plus some insight on adding runtime type checking, and the pros and cons of doing so, as well as how best to publish your flow typed modules to npm.
Complexity: Divide and Conquer!
"Reactive programming" still sounds scary to many developers. As if it is an elevated way of thinking, only accessible to the chosen few. Nothing is less true! It is the most natural way to look at programming problems. You just might not realize it yet! In this talk, Michel will demonstrate that many complex UI problems, such as form validation and routing, can all be seen as '*actions* that change *facts* which leads to *reactions*'. And as soon as we start distinguishing those concepts in our applications; our code will become more declarative, more concise and less imperative.
React Native Track
React Native opens up the world of mobile development for many of us, front-end engineers. It not only allows us to use technologies we know already, like React, to provide first-class native experience to our users, but also to support many platforms, like Android and iOS at once, from within the same codebase.
This talk will explore various patterns that turned to be useful over the course of few projects I did. It will also demonstrate techniques that can be used to write truly universal apps, ie. ones that share core across web, native and more.
Performance Limitations of React Native and How to Overcome Them
Testing & React Native: Lessons from the Battlefield
Wix has been about cutting edge web development for a while, and we're all about TDD. When we started mobile with RN, we struggled to replicate our test-heavy workflow that we'd grown to love. We lacked tooling, best practices, and general know-how.
In this talk, you'll hear about what works and what doesn't. You'll find out what methods we tried and rejected so you won't have to make the same mistakes, and you'll get pointers toward approaches that we've found work so you can get started on the right foot.

Asynchronous & Offline magic tricks on React Native
React Native is today the best tool to build mobile apps fast, but require extra care when managing asynchronous & offline logic: most people are often going to use your app with weak to no network.

Navigating React Native Navigation
When you start out on React Native project, there is a certain sense of awe as the package manager delivers the first bundle to the simulator. You quickly add some hello world text and maybe even a Pokemon image. Things are really starting to look up…
And then you need to add another view and you realize that you need to navigate somewhere. So you check out the React Native Docs and are quickly greeted by IOSTabBar, Navigation, and NavigationExperimental modules. With so many different options in the core codebase you realize that it’s still a bit of an unsolved problem. Now you’re looking at 3rd party integrations… and you start to wonder, just how should you implement navigation?
This talk will outline the different approaches to navigation available in React Native and in the RN eco-system, and the pro’s and con’s of each solution.
Web like release agility for React Native apps
Code Push for React Native brings web like release agility to mobile apps by enabling developers to update apps instantly. This talk will cover the next iteration of Code Push and how it fits into a complete suite of DevOps services built for called Mobile Center, built for React Native.
