Curious Cases of GraphQL
As GraphQL moves into the mainstream, the tooling & ecosystem has grown and has made it possible to do much more with GraphQL than using it as just a data layer. In this talk, I'll show how developers are using GraphQL as an API gateway to accomplish things that you may have never thought possible.
When we think of GraphQL at the resolver level, we typically associate some type of database as the resolver data source, but in practice a resolver is simply a function. What this means is that we can do much more with our GraphQL APIs & our resolvers than we ever thought possible, including things like taking existing REST APIs & transforming them into GraphQL APIs (http resolvers), passing the query to Lambda or serverless functions for processing & returning the response via a GraphQL query (for things like AI & ML), geospatial & time-based queries (passing the query to Elasticsearch), & even VR & AR apps (passing in user location / app info & using the subscription to transmit image assets). In this talk, I'll walk through what this looks like in theory & in practice, demoing 4 different applications that implement this functionality & showing the code that make the magic happen.

Matthew Gerstman - Dropbox
Building a typed and code split Redux store
Codesplitting is hard. Codesplitting with type checking is even harder. Building a strongly typed system around 1 a library built on top of generics and indirection? Now that sounds impossible. By we did it at Dropbox and I’m here to show you how you can do it to. This talk will cover how we built a sane, code split, and strongly typed Redux store that is easy for consumers to user.

Be a React a11y: Making React applications work for everyone
React has quickly become one of the most popular front-end libraries for creating web applications. But how much do we know about how well these interfaces work for *all* of our users, including those with disabilities or impairments?
In this session I will discuss how React provides a basic foundation for accessible user interfaces as well as how to go beyond the out-of-the-box features to build more inclusive web apps. I’ll cover common obstacles in designing and building accessible apps, helpful tools for testing, and share my own experience auditing an existing react app.
Yuraima Estevez is a software engineer at The New York Times. She cares deeply about building open source tools, empathetic web design and development, and finding the best tacos in whatever city she happens to be.
Albert Treat - Slack
How React improved Slack's team creation and onboarding experience
In 2018 my team embarked on a full refactor of Slack's team creation and onboarding flows. We transitioned from a combination of our own homegrown framework, Handlebars, and Smarty (PHP) to React / Redux / XHP.
I plan to talk about the challenges we faced, solutions we found, and how React has made it much easier for us to work on many simultaneous projects.
Albert is a Senior Frontend Engineer at Slack, working primarily on New User Experience and growth initiatives. In his spare time he enjoys traveling, skiing, surfing, and photography.
Dinner and Party
Afterparty - sponsored by Cognite
Late night afterparty. Very limited amount of seats. First to RSVP gets access.
React Day Norway will be held at an extraordinary location - at the modern beachfront hotel Farris Bad in the south of beautiful Norway, just an hour and a half from Oslo and 15 minutes from Oslo Torp Airport.
This is the address of the conference venue:
Hotel Farris Bad
Fritzøe Brygge 2
The hotel is located literally over the water providing you with a close to mid-summer experience in the Nordics with stunning views of fjords and the North Sea. From outside the conference windows you’ll hear the murmur of the waves and you can see beyond the horizon.
For the party there will be a BBQ on the hotel’s beach terrace with a stunning sea view.
HOW TO GET TO THE VENUE
We recommend to look into flights that arrive in Oslo Torp Sandefjord Airport (TRF), since it’s the closest to Larvik and just a 15 min. drive from the venue of the conference. You can reach Oslo Torp Sandefjord Airport (TRF) airport by many destinations in Europe. Once you’re at that airport, there is a shuttle from the airport to the train station in Larvik. It then takes approximately 5-7 minutes to walk from Larvik train station to the conference venue, Hotel Farris Bad.
Of course you can also fly to Oslo Airport Gardermoen (OSL) in Oslo and then take the train to Larvik (look for directions heading towards “Skien”), that’s about 2 hours. Here’s a link to the Norwegian railway company. Where you can search for your best train connection and buy tickets online: From Larvik train station it’s a 5-7 minutes walking distance to the venue Farris Bad.
THINGS TO DO AND SEE
