                          A Cartoon Intro to React Fiber

                          Lin Clark

                          React will be getting a new core algorithm soon with Fiber. This new algorithm improves perceived performance for complex pages. But to make that happen, the architecture had to be reconsidered from the ground up. In this talk, I’ll break down the new concepts and explain what makes it seem faster.

                                            Val Head

                                            Interface animations are most effective when they work in concert as part of the bigger picture. Designing and choreographing your web animation efforts from the top down leads to more effective animations that integrate into your design system. And, defining a motion language for your brand can help your team to develop a shared vision from which to work. In this session, Val will cover guidelines for designing animation that fits your brand, making animation part of your design process, and documenting your animation decisions in your style guide for future use. All the things you need to make web animation work for you and your team.

                                            Big Bang Redesign: Smashing Magazine’s 2017 Relaunch

                                            Vitaly Friedman

                                            You’ve been there: big bang redesigns are usually a very, very bad idea. Redesigning and rebuilding an existing website from scratch is risky and unpredictable, and in many cases the level of complexity is highly underrated and underestimated. In mid-2016, Smashing Magazine has decided to make a big switch from the existing WordPress setup to an entirely new design, entirely new architecture (JAM Stack) and an entirely new, GitHub-based, editorial workflow.

                                            In this talk, Vitaly will share some of the insights into Smashing Magazine’s Relaunch in 2017 — with decisions made, failures, successes, lessons learned and shady’n’dirty techniques used along the way. Among other things, you’ll learn how Smashing Magazine uses HTTP/2, service workers and server-less architecture with static site generators to boost performance, with a dash of React, Flexbox, CSS and the peek into the new GitHub-based editorial workflow here and there. Beware: the session will contain at least 27 illustrations of cats!
