Visualizing open source data in React

There’s a lot of star-gazing in open source, but what is clear is React is still the number one JS framework on GitHub. But what got React to this position? Join me in learning how to visualize open-source data validating that React continued prominence in the ecosystem through significant contributions. All this while using React Components to display this data of course.

Designing for code: creative tools on hard mode

At Replit, the team is designing an end-to-end, multiplayer platform for software development & deployment. This talk will be about what they've learned over the years designing for programmers (hint: it's kinda like cooking for chefs.)
Barron will cover unique multiplayer challenges and why it's not as simple as "it's like Figma!", how they stay focused in a field that's infinitely expansive, how they think about magic, when to invent vs adapt, and settle the "should designers code" debate once and for all.
