Migrating from Angular to React: A tale from the trenches

We’re in the middle of moving a very large, business critical app from Angular 1 to React. I’d like to talk about the reasons why and the practicalities of doing so in a less risky, flexible manner that hasn’t left us rebuilding from scratch but implementing incrementally.

The Curious Case of Monorepos

Monorepos have often stigmatized as bad practice and as such something that should be avoided. Still, big companies like Facebook, AirBnB and Google are actively using monorepos to manage their projects. In the open source world, monorepos have become more popular with Babel being the most prominent example. We'll dive into why monorepos might have this bad reputation and go into where it makes sense to have monorepos, talk about their advantages and their shortcomings. We'll also look into what tooling solutions are available - especially in a JavaScript context.
