Building Applications with a Unidirectional Data Flow

Facebook engineers Bill Fisher and Jing Chen are here to talk about Flux and React. They'll talk about how they use an application architecture with a unidirectional data flow, and how doing this cleans up a lot of their code. “We’ve built things with Flux ranging from small little widgets to some of the largest web applications that we know. […] Flux has scaled with us to do pretty much anything that we throw at it, and has done it really well, so we wanted to share some of that with you,” says Bill.

Their talk delivered at Forward JS covers:

  • Flux and React: What they are in on a general level?
  • A deep dive in stores (the data layer in Flux)
  • Tour of an example application
  • The future of Flux

The pair will also discuss how Facebook approaches client-side applications using Facebook’s lightning-fast JavaScript framework to manage an application's view layer. You can even contribute at the new GitHub Repository for Flux.
