08.01.2015 NPM and ReactJS with Rob Ashton


Dear friends,

The new year has not yet arrived but already we have a big announcement to make for next year. Rob Ashton will be visiting our Usergroup for a talk about NPM and ReactJS. This event is again a joint venture with the Usergroup Bern. So if you can’t attend our event on the Thursday the 8th January you might be able to attend the event in Bern on the 7th January. Check out their website too!

We are still looking for interesting short presentations for our usergroup meetings. Short presentations are the ideal format to give away your insights about the latest tools and techniques you use in your daily job. It is also a very good platform to sharpen your presenter skills. Send us an email to urs dot enzler at dotnet-zentral.ch or daniel dot marbach at dotnet-zentral.ch. Take the chance: you can give it in German or English!

Main: NPM and ReactJS

Frameworkless development with NPM is great – but patching together odd templating libraries and managing the DOM can end up causing performance issues if the team is not careful to batch updates across components. That’s where React comes in – utilizing React as a view engine within a typical framework-free set-up can result in cheap performance gains and a sensible data management strategy throughout the app without any of that horrific two-way data binding found in other systems.

See now as Rob covers how he uses React within a typical application set-up, build tools, common patterns, common modules and patterns for easy wins for the entire team.

Main: Speaker

Rob is an Erlang slinging hipster from the UK who spends most of his time either drinking coffee or talking about JS, Haskell and Clojure. He lives in Glasgow and works wherever he pleases – which might be a coffee shop or a cocktail bar depending on the time of day, although to balance that out sometimes his office is just the local climbing centre. Code punctuated by Coffee and Climbing – the three Cs that he can’t do without.


By using our xing group dotnet-zentral or our website under Anmeldung. Attention: Seats are limited!

Come and visit the first meeting in the new year of the .NET Usergroup Zentralschweiz.

Urs Enzler and Daniel Marbach
