Thanks for having me today! I hope this was useful for everyone here. I'm off to go grab lunch now.
I like working with React, a lot. So thank you for all your work, and for hosting this AMA. I have been through the React Fiber Architecture document recently, and I am quite excited for it, and I have a question regarding reconcilement.
From what little I have gathered, React Fiber is just the reconciler; what I am not able to digest is how can a single reconciler algorithm work for all the platforms — web, and mobile. Aren't there changes at a structural level between how objects are structured in DOM as to how "views" are structured in mobile apps
What is your favourite pastime, apart from working on React? :)
