19:45 〜 20:15 From Back to Front: Rails To ReactJS, Flux, RelayJS/GraphQL Khor Soon Hin

ReactJS, Flux, RelayJS, GraphQL, challenges the way we think & code front-end. This presentation explains what they are, how they work together, and how to get them to work on Rails.

In React/Flux, every time a user interaction triggers a change in a piece of data, the entire set of data for all the pieces of UI flows uni-directionally from the top-level UI to its subcomponents. This strategy helps debugging tremendously since by examining data at a single point we can reason about what when wrong.

RelayJS/GraphQL abstracts the difficult parts of fetching data and caching for UIs into a framework enabling us to simply declare data that we need without having to write AJAX or deal with asynchronous code. This allows us to reduced the server-side to a single API endpoint capable of handling the GraphQL DSL.


Khor started using Ruby while working on his university dissertation 6 years ago. He has worked for large corporations, research labs, and startup companies. Having seen what went right, and what could go wrong in companies, he hopes that he has gotten IT, and is passionate about helping companies and their employees achieve greatness through culture. If you are an unhappy employee, or your company has problems hiring great people, he would love to hear your story, and help out with his magic wand.
