Change Detection
State Management

In my experience as a consultant I have debugged my fair share of weird state related bugs that end up boiling down to a misunderstanding of how change detection works in React and Angular. once I really dug into the libraries and learned exactly how change detection really works, and how it is triggered, I found it much easier to diagnose and fix bugs as the tickets came up. I would like to share this knowledge with other developers, because I feel like change detection is often taken for granted as people are learning new libraries and frameworks.


This session is best suited for people who are working in or interested in working in React or Angular. Some of the concepts covered will be applicable to other javascript libraries or frameworks, but the bulk of the examples and discussion will center around React and Angular.
