My first public speech – How to use React.js

My first public speech – How to use React.js

A friend of mine organises a meetup about web technologies and asked me if I want to speak about React.js. My last presentation was about my master thesis and I thought it is a great opportunity to renew my presentation skills (not sure if I have some).

I prepared this presentation as best I knew, but unfortunately I underestimated expectations of my audience and I think some of them were disappointed. I was asked questions after presentation like, “Why should I care about React if I use Angular?”, “Why did you choose React in your company?”. These questions are not bad, but I didn’t expect them and didn’t want to speak about “why”. I don’t have experience with all frameworks and I think it depends more on projects and developers in your company. There is a lot of articles about why (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11). Anyway, if you speak about “something new”, you probably can’t avoid these kind of questions…

In the end, it was great experience and hopefully I will speak about something interesting in the future.
