Spoiler alert, I’m not going to enumerate 13 Reasons Why… because that would be painful (no pun intended), however I couldn’t resist the pop culture reference.
From time to time I come across articles and podcast that inspire me. While watching game 4 of the Western Conference and listening to podcasts, I came across another good one. Shop Talk is a weekly podcast about front end web design, development, and UX. Recent episodes have covered a myriad of topics to include WebVR, AMP and CSS Grid. All very interesting, but at present Facebook’s React JS and React Native libraries are transforming how web and mobile apps are developed. From a high level, React is a declarative way of building a UI. At both Keystoke and SandBox Commerce we regularly use these libraries in conjunction with native code, API’s and SDK’s to build both web and mobile applications that reach millions of end users on a monthly basis. It just so happens that Netflix does too!
To learn more about how and why Netflix uses React to build apps that engage nearly 100M monthly subscribers check out the latest episode of Shop Talk (link here). If you’d like to have a more comprehensive discussion about whether or not React might be the best fit for your next project, hit me up (Twitter, Email, Blog)!
