In case you haven’t heard about it yet, there is a new tech conference that is all about React (and more!) happening in a few months. It’s called React India 2019 and I am super stoked about it!

Workshops@ReactIndia 2019

React India presents us with an amazing new opportunity to learn new tricks in React while meeting with some well-known speakers and leaders of the React community.

And another defining feature about this event is that it is happening right next to a gorgeous beach in Goa, India.

Apart from great talks from people like Ken Wheeler, Nader Dabit, Sara Vieira, Jani Eväkallio, and many more, this very first version of React India also offers a 1 full day of workshops!

The workshop part of the event takes place on September 26, the day before the main conference begins. You will get to choose 1 of 3 awesome workshops that will give you some amazing hands-on knowledge about React, ReasonML and GraphQL.

Here are a few more details about these workshops to help you choose the workshop that best suits your needs.

Building your first Design System: from scratch to products

Siddharth Kshetrapal brings with him this new workshop that will teach you how to define a common language for collaboration and implement faster iterations.

This workshop will teach you some of the best practices in component driven design and how to implement a standard design pattern in your projects. Sid will also show you to build a component library that you can then use in your projects and how to evolve it with future use. By the end, you will have implemented a complete design system that can be used in the entire life cycle of you project.


Practical ReasonML for React Devs

Created by Jordan Walke at Facebook, ReasonML is a syntax extension and toolchain for OCaml (another programming language) that lets you write simple, fast, and quality type-safe code in JavaScript and OCaml ecosystems.

Vladimir Novick has created this workshop to help developers not just understand why they should consider ReasonML while writing code, but also learn how to use it in your React applications.

The workshops starts with some core ReasonML syntax, then moves to BuckleScript. The most interesting part about this workshop for me is that you will get build an actual ReasonML — React application with GraphQL for backend.

So in just one workshop, you will get some hands-on experience in React, ReasonML, and GraphQL! 😲


Basic knowledge of functional programming and an open minded attitude will be most appreciated, since this workshop you break things and try something that’s new, different, and out of your comfort zone.

Advanced GraphQL

GraphQL has been around for some time now, and it looks like it is not gonna go away anytime soon. But because most of us are hardwired to work with RESTFUL APIs, transitioning to this new way of build APIs can become a hassle for most beginners.

This is why Kiran Abburi is here to show us all that we need to know in order to get started with GraphQL and learn how to build awesome apps that use GraphQL for backend. That’s not all, you will get to see how to use the Apollo Client and Server and build a simple e-commerce web app with React and GraphQL.


I look forward to seeing you all at React India this September! If you are interested in attending just the workshop part of this event, then click here and buy your React India Workshop Pass.

You can also try and convince your boss to buy a React India Ticket for you. Here are a few pointers to help you out.
