  1. Ashley Williams — Why the #wasmsummit Website isn’t written in Wasm

    WebAssembly is not here to kill JavaScript. In fact, to be successful, it must not. But let me back up.

    WebAssembly is an exciting new technology that has the ambition to change how and what we program for not only the web, but everywhere. In the case of the web platform, WebAssembly’s promise has led many to declare that WebAssembly’s entrance means the death of JavaScript. This belief is not only reactionary, but deeply short-sighted, and likely to threaten the successful wide-spread adoption of WebAssembly.

    In this talk, we’ll use the WebAssembly Summit website to discuss the uses and misuses of WebAssembly on the web. We’ll explore the historical and material conditions of the web, past and present, to understand how and why the web changes and what its current trajectory is. With this understanding, we’ll explore how WebAssembly can navigate this unique moment and discuss the practical implications of the specification’s growth and better tooling as WebAssembly searches for its place in the web platform and beyond.

    Discussions and Questions “General Discussion!”


    Brent would you like introduce yourself?


    Can you give us a run down of how you got involved with React Native?


    What about your involvement with the community, how did that get to where it is now?


    Yeah I think your new letter is the highlight of our week!


    Do you get a lot of people contributing to the news article, or do you take care of it on your own?


    There is Exponent as well, tell us about a bit about you involvement in that?  And how that fit in your big picture?


    Instant Apps is a great term!


    So how has it been getting Android already for production?


    I know Android is so new, were you guys working with Facebook? How much platform experience do the the team member at Exponent have to put something like this together?


    You mention that there is increasingly less missing components for Android? And for anyone who is assessing the state of React Native today, if they need to build a cross platform app, how is it going?


    Out of curiosity, what kind of area was that in, animation, number crunching?


    In terms of where React Native is head, may you can tell us what you have found good, where you’ve had trouble, and the direction it is going in, in terms of core development?


    Conversation about open source by Microsoft, MailBox, and Carousel by Dropbox. And Peter move to Outlook.


    So Brent, in terms of what you do at Exponent, are you guys at parody for Android and iOS, or are you guys more iOS driven. How do you decide what is going to have precedence.


    Because iOS is so limited compared to Android, I wonder if we will have much cooler React Native apps built on Android?


    Can you add native modules on the fly on Android?


    What are the future plans for Exponent?


    Are you worried about running a foul on the app store policies?



    Lee talks about Test Flight.



    Jed ask about React Conf. and how Brent is organizing the conference.



    How is this year React Conf. going to be different from last year?



    Brent share information about a Diversity Scholarship offered for the conferences.



    Peter ask if you get a free ticket if you speak at the Lightening Talk?



    I’m curious, where do you see React Native heading as far as the number of people using it, and the growth around RN?



    How does one get involve and get started, because it is open source?


    You are one of the few people outside of Facebook that is a core contributor to React Native. What is that experience like for you?


    Lee asks a question about more information about migrating apps.


    Peter asks, for someone who is looking to adopt React Native, what would you tell them?

    React Native Radio | Episode 1


    Nader Dabit - Developer @schoolstatusapp, Co-Founder of Code South Labs

    Kevin Old – Full Stack Javascript Engineer, Organizer @nashreact && @nodevember

    Jed Watson - Partner at @thethinkmill, JavaScript / node.js developer, creator of @KeystoneJS and @TouchstoneJS

    Lee Johnson – Developer @schoolstatusapp


    So Kevin how did you get started with React Native?


    Jed, how about yourself? How did you get started with React Native?


     How was the initial feedback with the Devs that were at the React Conference?


    It was more of seeing the possibility of another layer that we did not know you could do something with.


    This isn’t just on the web, it is something completely different.


    We were all full of React Kool-Aid!


    How does everyone feel about when they first picked up React Native? How hard was it to get your first app up and running? How hard was compared to building Hybrid or Native apps? What were the road-blocks you run into?


    I think after doing a couple of tutorials online, going through the docs, you can get a good grasp on how to build an app. 


    The things I did struggle with were the concepts…


     Can you go into the debugging experience and how it is similar and different for the web stuff?


    The Flexbox was the biggest hurtle.


    Interested in Lee, coming from the opposite side of native development?


    Has anyone played with React Native Android? What kind of environment is needed for that? Do you need have the Android SDK installed onto your machine?


    It is definitely not a huge cliff you fall from, when there is something you don’t know how to do. These are a lot of resources out there to solve problems if your in the dark.


    Escape Hatches! Bridge Methods.


    If someone wants to get started with React Native, What are some the recommendations and resources they can use?

    (36:07) It there is a resource that doesn’t make sense to you, move on.

  6. 13-minute podcast

    This is why LCE on Facebook matters. It makes a beautiful statement, that people can attach their ideas to.# 13-minute podcast about browser-based JavaScript apps and how they connect to services like Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote.# BTW, there’s one little bennie from the way Facebook does their API. Since I don’t have to run a server, Little Card Editor will scale indefinitely without me spending a dime. :sunny:# The best way to get ideas is to suffer with something that doesn’t really work.#
