The Universality of Static Sites


Meet those driving the change! World-renowned mobile and web innovators got together for three days in one town.

ReactiveConf, October 26 - 28 2016, Bratislava, Slovakia


Mark Dalgleish: The Universality of Static Sites

React played a pivotal role in the widespread emergence of universal/isomorphic apps, rendering on both the server and client. However, many applications continue to render purely on the client, and for good reason—running a React server in production doesn't come without significant challenges. Typically we find ourselves having to choose between these two competing approaches, but there's a lesser-known third option—using React to pre-render our sites at build time, whether partially or fully. In this talk we'll cover why you'd want to do this in the first place, and how modern tooling can help us achieve it.


Have you heard about ReactiveConf? According to tech superstars such as David Nolen, Richard Feldman, or Brent Vatne, it’s the best conference on web and mobile app development! It focuses on all things React and beyond and takes place annually in Bratislava, Slovakia.

In 2016, more than 700 attendees from all over the world spent three days in Bratislava getting inspired, sharing amazing new ideas, and meeting more than 30 awesome speakers from companies such as Google, Cognitect, NoRedInk, RethinkDB, Airbnb, Microsoft, Facebook, and the list could go on forever.
