React and Vanilla JS: The Fight for DOMination
14:15 - 15:00
This session will be delivered in English. If you are a React developer, chances are you have run into this problem before: there are libraries out there that do what you need done, but they are written in Vanilla JS, not React. That means they manipulate the DOM imperatively, instead of declaratively describing it and letting React handle its actual manipulation. How do we integrate such libraries with React? How do we ensure the DOM isn't changed behind React's back - or when that's unavoidable, how do we bring React's virtual DOM back in sync with it? Most importantly, do the benefits of Reactification ultimately outweigh the costs?
