React is a JavaScript library for building modern, powerful user interfaces. It was developed by Facebook engineers and introduced to the world in 2013 as an open source project. Today, it has emerged as the dominant frontend tool preferred by developers -- leading other libraries and frameworks in usage, adoption, developer experience, and interest.

Conferences are beneficial to engineers and their companies for so many reasons. Here are just a few:

  1. Stay up to date. Learn from experienced engineers, maintainers, and core contributors who present what they've been working on the last year (or 2, or 5). JavaScript and React are ever-evolving, and to fall behind these changes is to invite problems into your code and company.
  2. Gain perspective & insight. Conferences aren't just about the talks -- you will also engage in conversations about the technology you love with engineers from other companies. They may help you to solve a problem you've been having, or see something in a way that you and your company have never thought about.
  3. Get inspired. There is something magical about putting hundreds of like-minded folks -- each with their own unique experiences -- in the same room for a day or two. It's thrilling to experience this connection you'll make with other engineers, which brings direct benefit back to the company in terms of education, perspective, and inspiration.
