Frontend Conf program for those who do not have a time flywheel

    A third of all reports on the upcoming RIT ++ will be related to client development, and this is almost 40 pieces. Naturally, they will go in two parallel specialized streams, and the most applicable for a wide audience - in the main hall. And here the flywheel of time would come in handy, but it seems that instead it will be necessary to solve the serious problem of maximizing utility.

    Naturally, everyone has their own criteria, so we, of course, will not offer you a ready-made solution. But, firstly, we are trying to formulate a schedule so that there is always an opportunity for maneuver, and secondly, we have prepared a short guide on the reports.

    Everything is clear about Yegor Utrobin ’s report from - the invaluable experience of the mail team in implementing microservices on the front end to speed up almost all stages of the development process. It will be interesting to know if everything is so rosy, and what efforts it required.
    At this point, before proceeding to section reports, we consider it appropriate to indicate a link to ticket reservations .

    New items

    Let's go further. A conference is a place where you can quickly find out about trends and updates . Moreover, immediately with analytics and a rake map. Here is what we will have on this part.
