On Scaling React Applications
Immutable data structures, React, and FP have transformed the way we code
frontend applications today. However, there have been few case studies on how
these technologies scale as an application grows into a large production app.
This talk will dissect the growth of a large React application, from the
initial technical mistakes that can be made, to overcoming performance hurdles,
and introducing necessary technology to keep development productive.

production at Facebook after that.
