Thanks for all the questions! I hope the answers were useful and interesting!
Can you tell us about your journey to Front-end Engineer working on many great projects? How did you started? And in your opinion which are the must know concepts in Computer Science I as a web developer need to learn so that I can understand the principles and contribute to React?
I see compile to JS languages becoming more and more important due to limitations of JS itself. Do you see those types of higher level languages eventually becoming the web programming platform or will JS evolve into a language that fills those gaps? Do you see JS ever addressing static typing through native language constructs?
Hey Christopher, I have a two part (two very unrelated parts) question for you:
How does it feel to work with absolute legends like Sheryl Sandberg and Mark Zuckerberg in person? Also, is it true that you have these sessions where you can ask Mark Zuckerberg anything every Friday?
This one is more on the technical side of things. React Native is obviously getting a lot of traction of late, but do you really think React Native can permanently replace Android and iOS?
What do you think of this kind of optimisation : https://medium.com/missive-app/45-faster-react-functional-components-now-3509a668e69f Is it still worth it with Reat 16 ?
Hi Christopher, I am learning react universal rendering with redux. I am following https://github.com/erikras/react-redux-universal-hot-example. The differences in my architecture are, I am not using Ducks as in the example. I am also using isomorphic-fetch instead of superagent. And I am not using any promise middleware since fetch itself return promise to async connect.
But I am facing a strange issue. I have a popup for sign in. And sign in handled on client side completely. After signing in I am storing tokens and sessions in redux state. But when I refresh the browser, all the values in redux state become null. All I want is to retain the sign in data on page reload (server rendering).
Do not know if I could explain you properly. But I am feeling like there must be a missing link in the entire redux flow.
Thanks in advance.
I agree change is inevitable. but considering the trend with companies contributing opensource projects, the growth as one aspect is good. But do you any side-effects now or in future in other aspects? eg: a developer career/mind got confused to what to choose? or say one switch to a different organization and suddenly change his ethics of coding ?
