My extremely biased and non-exhaustive list of React Conf 2019 notes/takeaways :)

Thought I'd post my React Conf notes here for anyone who is interested!

  • New! Prerelease channels: In order to support other library and framework devs, and to enlist early feedback, the React team is debuting 3 new prerelease channels: Latest (stable), Next (on-deck for stable release, but doesn't adhere to semver and may intro breaking changes), and Experimental (caution! likely to contain large and breaking changes). Latest is the only channel recommended for user-facing applications.

  • New! Experimental release of Concurrent Mode: Concurrent Mode supports interruptible rendering, including suspending render in components whose data has not yet returned (Suspense API). I got a glimpse of SuspenseList in action in the context of rendering a list of photos from a remote source and it was pretty neat - I think there's a lot to be excited for here, especially for mobi




  • Sprintly: JS-based view, OAuth app, and library creation for initial project management app; lead on rewrite of entire front-end app in React and Redux consuming Django-based REST API, real time data, and ElasticSearch faceted search data
  • Interchange: Front-end lead building investment management software in Apollo and React, consuming a GraphQL API


  • Target "Made for U" app: JS social/mobile shopping application supporting Target's first back-to-school capsule collections [partnership with Deutsch Agency, LA]
  • IFL team apps: GraphQL/Relay/React web app and Phoenix (for Elixer back-end) + WebSocket mobile app (vanilla JS and WebSocket-based) supporting the first fan-run sports team with real-time fan play-calling [partnership with Crossfield Agency, NY]

how do I type the cb?
View type-ex.js
In the scenario below, I have a menu that can be used to render a list
of selectable options that may be of type 'string' or of type 'number'.
It takes a 'onOptionSelect' callback whose arguments can be of either type.
However, some components that render this generic menu may only accept
string-type selections or may only accept number-type selections. How do I
type onOptionsSelect (or the actual callbacks that get passed in) to account
for this flexibility?
