👋 Hello from React India 2021
React India finally happened last week—if we were on the same table in the lounge, hi again! Like any conference, the lounge/booth conversations were equally exciting as the actual talks themselves, especially when there were so many interesting people to interact with too! (Disclaimer: I may or may not start preparing for the React India 2022 conference CFP already 👀)
I also attended DX Club (opens in a new tab)'s AMA with Kabir Nazir (opens in a new tab) — who has been living in the Himalayas for over 2 years now. 🤯 Lots of great advice and tips as always, love what they've been doing over the last couple of months.
Announcing React Location — Tanner Linsley/TanStack (opens in a new tab) An alternative to React Router, with things like Async Routing, prefetching, caching and much more! (comparison with React Router (opens in a new tab))
Durable Objects, now Generally Available — The Cloudflare Blog (opens in a new tab) The first in Cloudflare's Full Stack Week: a shared, single-threaded memory cache for your workers which can be easily scaled globally for you. "There’s no networking to configure, database to manage, or autoscaling policy to implement — it all just works."
When does a table become too big? — Connor McDonald (opens in a new tab) From Angie Jones' (opens in a new tab) thread about storing (and querying) "likes" on a post — How does a standard relational table do with 2 billion rows?
React 18 is now in Beta — ReactJS official Twitter (opens in a new tab) Don't worry, you don't have to do anything! This is meant for "highly-engaged community members who want to help us prepare our new features for wider adoption."
- Vercel welcomes Rich Harris, creator of Svelte (opens in a new tab) This means so, so much for Svelte and the community; PuruVijay said it best (opens in a new tab): "Vercel's team of Avengers just got their Doctor Strange 🔥🔥"
- Highlights from Git 2.34 (opens in a new tab) If you're interested, there's a new default merge strategy which is 500-9000x faster 🤯
- Cloudflare blocks an almost 2 Tbps multi-vector DDoS attack (opens in a new tab)
- Macron reverts French flag to navy blue from lighter EU shade (opens in a new tab) Like Allahabad -> Prayagraj, but one a national scale
and a bonus family photo!
That's all for now, have a great week!
Stay kind 💜
