Danny Palmer (Keap)
- "Case Study: How Keap Uses React (Native)"
- Keap develops software for small businesses across web and mobile with a diverse technology stack: Java services, Node.js services, a Java web app, a Vue.js web app, mobile apps with Swift, Java, and React Native, and more. Come learn how they arrived at the decision to use React (Native), how Vue and React co-exist, and how Keap leverages both to deliver value to its customers.
- Danny is a software engineer and lead of mobile app development at Keap. He has been developing software across all parts of the stack for the past 12 years. He is passionate about product development and empowering users with delightful experiences. Away from the keyboard he spends his time with his wife and three kids.
Zach Charnell (Carvana)
- "Context vs Redux, Now with Hooks"
- Hooks allow us to use completely functional components to do all the state management we used to do only in classes. Given that Context is so easily accessible with the `useContext` hook, is there any reason to use Redux for a small app? Let's look at a specific project at Carvana to see what research this question led to, the results, and what decision we came to.
- Zach is a software engineer on the Core team at Carvana, where he works on cross-site React projects. He's obsessed with learning and would rather spend his time asking questions than building features. He's one of those guys that loves coffee shops and won't deny how much money he spends on coffee.
Timmy Garrabrant (Keap)
- “Leveling up your team through code review”
- Code Reviews are a common practice in software development. Code Reviews help enforce standards, prevent bugs, and share new techniques with your team. Let’s go through merge requests and look at ways you can improve your code reviews.
- Timmy is a software engineer at Keap where he works on the mobile team. He has been a front end developer for the past 6 years and is passionate about creating simple, intuitive user experiences. When he’s not at work you can usually find him seasoning his cast iron skillets.
