Yay β€” What a week and what a sexy conference! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Last week I visited React Europe and it was thrilling! The speakers and the presentations were great, the attendants were visiting the conference from around the world. I had the opportunity to discuss and share opinions on web technologies and react’s ecosystem with many engineers as well as speakers who were really approachable. Being part of this community makes you feel much more motivated to continue working and contribute in them even further!

During the conference, React ecosystem was presented as more mature and many libraries have gotten updated and modernized. Opinions and experimental implementations that are further to be developed and discussed, giving a timid shape of the future of React. Conference talks displayed the interest and the importance of specifc subjects.

Last but not least, the organization of the conference was really good, shout out to @ReactEurope’s team! The schedule was followed with almost inexistent delays, speakers were relaxed and enthusiastic, sharing their work, experimentations, use cases and demos.

So here we are, a sum up from the conference!
