Build Your Own React

Ofir Dagan

Ever wondered what’s behind React’s magic? What makes it tick? How does it REALLY work? As developers we are trained not to take anything for granted. Everything that happens has a line of code behind it. And if we truly want to improve, the more we’ll understand how stuff work the better developers we’ll become. In this talk I'll explain the main idea behind React and how it works by writing a live simplified version of React during the session.

Hi I'm Ofir, a hands on software team leader at WIX.com. In the last 3+ years I've worked a lot with react and angular and developed wix's dashboard from scratch. In the last year I’ve been leading the Wix CRM Mobile team, writing Wix’s mobile app in react native. I'm also a mentor at WIX academy (WIX's training program) and I like speaking about software in all of its forms. Besides programming, I'm an adrenaline enthusiastic. From my latest hobby sailing to climbing, bungee through surfing, diving skiing and snowboarding. If it has adrenaline I've done it.
