Advanced React Patterns (in-person)

Come to the workshop with some basic knowledge in React (with hooks) and we'll teach you some of the most reliable and resilient patterns for creating advanced React code that can be re-used in your applications. This workshop will be ideal for those creating "library code". In other words, highly composable and reusable code to be shared across an organization or a large project.

Workshop schedule & location

Date & time: May 30, 9:00-18:00 CEST. In-person in Amsterdam, the venue – TBA.

TypeScript, Deep Dive (in-person)

More and more projects are using TypeScript. This workshop will provide a deep dive into the language, and basic TypeScript knowledge is assumed. We will briefly discuss the design philosophy of TypeScript, and then cover all the lesser-known or harder features. That is: do all the cool and weird meta programming stuff (TS is turing complete!) and learn the tricks you won't find in the handbook.

So join if you feel like you're writing too much type annotations to make TypeScript happy! We'll dive deep into how type inference and control flows works, and how you can make the compiler work for you. We'll discuss all the fancier language constructs like:

  • ReturnType<>, Parameters<>
  • typeof, keyof
  • Mapped types
  • ConditionalTypes
  • Function overloading
  • Discrimination unions
  • Type guards and type assertions
  • String template types
  • (Variadic) tuple types

Everything New in React 18 and Beyond (in-person)

React 18 was a long-awaited release. New APIs were introduced and certain behaviour changed. Some of these changes have quite an impact on your daily development, while others rarely affect you. Nevertheless, only by knowing your tools can you best decide when to use which of them.

In order to get a deep understanding of these new APIs and behaviour changes we will explore the following topics:

  • new concurrent rendering APIs: useTransition, startTransition, useDeferredValue
  • new Hooks: useId, useSyncExternalStore, useInsertionEffect
  • strict effects in the new Strict Mode and revisiting useEffect
  • automatic batching and flushSync
  • sneak peek into what's coming after React 18 including a brief introduction into and for data fetching
