Why separating the signal from the noise is key for modern web developers
I suggest starting with reading the React docs and creating a simple example using create-react-app. The Facebook team has done a wonderful job creating comprehensive docs and a reliable starter kit.

As a React developer, I’m excited for Max Stoiber’s session on styling React components. I’m also really interested in exploring functions as a service, and there are multiple interesting sessions on this topic.
