ReactEurope conference 2015

This post is a work in process as more videos are posted online. In case you miss any information, please comment below or contact me on Twitter.

Last week I attended the first ReactEurope conference, flawlessly organised by Patrick Aljord and his team. More than 700 people traveled to Paris, including many Facebook hotshots, to experience a true React heatwave.

I assembled all important information from each presentation: Video, slides, announcements, code, links and the wonderful notes that Michael Chan made of all sessions except his own. At the end you'll find links to other blog posts about the conference written by attendees.
