Since we started to see JS on the server side, the dream of developers has been to reduce the gap and the cost of switch between frontend/backend. Today with Node.js, React and a whole ecosystem of tools, this dream is becoming true! In this talk I am going to discuss about Universal (a.k.a. Isomorphic) JS and present some practical example regarding the major patterns related to routing, data retrieval and rendering. I will use Node, React, Webpack, Babel and React Router and give you a series of example to get you started easily with this new technology trend.
I was born in 1987, the same year Super Mario Bros was released in Europe, which, by chance is my favourite game! I started coding at the age of 12, hacking away with my father's old i386 armed only with MS-DOS and the QBasic interpreter and since then I have been professionally a software developer for more than 10 years. I am currently a Solution Architect at Vectra AI in Dublin where I am automating the hunt for cyberattackers. I love the fullstack web, Node.js & Serveless so I co-authored "Node.js design patterns" (http://amzn.to/1ZF279B), launched fstack.link and Serverlesslab.com
