"Working with Nested Routes and Parameterized Routes" by Aaron Saunders at #RemixConf 💿

We will walk through a simple demonstration of a remix application using nested routes and parameterized routes. The use of nested routes helps me with component design and separation when architecting an application. Parameterized routes / Dynamic Routes contain state information that can through the parameters that are defined on the route. This provides powerful flexibility when designing your app and app's components. Putting the two together in an simple solution to be a reference when you build something amazing. Speaker bio: Aaron is an Information Technology Strategist, Thought Leader, and Diversity and Inclusion Trailblazer - Founder & CEO of Clearly Innovative. He believes technology and in his case coding is an enabler and an equalizer. Aaron has focused a large part of his career training and developing individuals who want to get into tech but cannot find the opening; through the apprenticeship program he ran at Clearly Innovative, teaching web and mobile development at Howard University, and the free technical videos on his Youtube Channel he just want to help others get a seat at the table of tech and innovation.

"Remixing a Symfony" by Emily Kauffman at #RemixConf 💿

In late 2020, I ran a Lighthouse test on a simple content page on Harvie, our farm management platform and Symfony app, and received a performance score of 31/100. The JavaScript bundle, the API requests, the database lookups, even with minimal UI to render, had a baseline score in the thirties! Along with customer feedback, this helped to catalyze a renewed commitment to performance at Harvie. Through numerous discussions, we walked through each step of page load, from networking to rendering, and identified where we could improve. After a year of rewrites and upgrades, our remaining detriment to overall performance was our frontend. We had been converting our Symfony twig templates into React SPA components and fell into the common problem of creating "request waterfalls", while our user had to stare at a loading screen. We needed a change, and for us, that was Remix. In this talk, I'll walk you through our team's journey with performance and how Remix has become a natural progression of that. Speaker bio: Emily is a Lead Software Engineer based out of Pittsburgh, PA. She's a lifelong learner, adjunct professor, and IoT enthusiast. Emily has a tech background in healthcare, robotics, and more recently, bringing local food to the masses at Harvie. In her spare time, you can find Emily tinkering with her homemade conversion van, scuba diving, or trying her hand at landscape photography.

"Switching to Remix at Neighbor" by Dennis Beatty at #RemixConf 💿

Neighbor is a marketplace that allows you to make extra cash by storing your neighbors' things in your extra space. After several years of using a standard React frontend generated by create-react-app, we've decided to move to Remix. I will discuss some of the crazy things we've done at Neighbor to work around the limitations of a standard CRA-generated application, why we chose to use Remix over other alternatives, and discuss some of the gotchas and learning that came out of the migration. If you work at a medium to large business and are interested in moving to Remix, this talk is especially for you. I will mostly stick to big picture concepts rather than diving deep into the code. Speaker bio: Dennis works as a senior software engineer at Neighbor, a marketplace for self-storage, where he led the switch to Remix. While Dennis works across the entire tech stack, he's especially comfortable with systems architecture and seeing how pieces fit together. He's contributed to open source software in various ways (mostly within the Elixir ecosystem) and has enjoyed sharing some of his learning on his blog and his Youtube channel. Outside of programming Dennis loves spending time with his wife and his daughter who was born this past year, and he also skis, explores Utah's national forests, and shoots photos of the stars.

"Outstanding Search Experiences with Remix and Algolia" by Sarah Dayan at #RemixConf 💿

Outstanding search starts with two principles: immediate feedback and relevant results. Search-as-you-type experiences have become the standard since Google introduced Google Suggest and Google Instant on their search page in the 2000s. Users not only love the immediate feedback of instant experiences, they expect it. They also expect search to be excellent at understanding their intent, even when they misspell or forget words. Services like Algolia are designed to deliver instant, as-you-type, relevant results right from the first keystrokes. But what happens when the user's network is slow? What's relevant when the user didn't express intent yet? In this talk, we'll see how you can combine Algolia's client-side search with the power of Remix's server runtime to create snappy and delightful yet reliable and resilient search experiences that serve everyone. Speaker bio: Sarah is a Staff Software Engineer from Paris, France who works on front-end search experiences at Algolia. She created the Dinero.js monetary library and hosts the Developer Experience podcast show. She's passionate about building dynamic front-end experiences, and won't shut up about TDD and utility-first CSS. She shares what she learns on her blog and at tech conferences around the world.

"Incremental Remix" by Jon Jensen at #RemixConf 💿

Remix is fantastic for building brand-new apps. But the truth is most of us are slogging away on crusty old ones. How can we incorporate Remix into our stacks without rewriting everything? And how can we effectively sell our teams on the benefits of adoption? In this talk we'll explore some strategies that will let you gradually adopt Remix, progressively enhancing your tech stack. Speaker bio: Jon is a Senior Software Engineer (Netflix) working to improve the developer experience for other UI engineers. Previously he worked at Amazon and Instructure working on various things software-y. In his spare time, he's usually in the mountains, playing Minecraft with his kids, or following the Red Food Truck around SLC. Learn more at https://remix.run/conf/2022/speakers/jon-jensen

"Magically Create Forms + Actions with Remix Forms" by Daniel Weinmann at #RemixConf 💿

One of the beautiful things about Remix is how easy it is to enhance it to make our lives easier. In this talk, I'll show you how I built Remix Forms and how I use it to: - Code only the parts of my forms that stray from our standard UI. The rest is magically rendered for me. - Never have to think again about client-side + server-side validations, pending indicators, and focus management (with focus on the first field with error even for server-side failures!) - Get form data, validate values, redirect or return errors with one helper. I focus on the mutation, not on the wiring. - Catch any typo or mistake right away with bulletproof typing, even for custom inputs. - Enjoy the autocomplete magic that comes along with it :) Speaker bio: In order to bring his startups to life, Daniel had to go through a 9-year journey to become the technical founder and CTO he needed in his teams. However, his real passion has always been the non-technical way, and having to spend his days coding took a toll on him. When Daniel was finally able to come back to the business side, he had a secret weapon: in his struggles to leave the technical life behind, he gained a deep understanding of what it takes for a non-technical founder to create successful startups. Beyond his own journey, he's helped tons of founders build world-class products over the last 20+ years. Along the way, he was CEO, CMO, and CTO of many startups. Daniel has also founded a few successful ones himself, including Mailee, which was sold to a Brazilian internet provider, and Catarse, the biggest crowdfunding platform in Latin America.

"Full Stack Fast: Data on the Edge" by Greg Brimble at #RemixConf 💿

Why force your users to settle for either loading skeletons or slow page renders? Remix can bring your application rendering to the edge, but what about your data? Why should every request have to call back to a single database cluster in Virginia? For the best performance and experience for your users, store your data on the edge, alongside the rest of your application. We'll discuss how the original colocated server and database configuration worked, how it evolved with Jamstack, improved with next-gen data services, and how today's technology supports a new architecture altogether. But distributed systems are notoriously hard to design for, and edge-based storage is no different, with the challenges of synchronicity being a particularly difficult problem. I'll highlight the benefits of edge-based storage, how it compares to the other options, and I'll showcase a truly global Remix application built with Cloudflare's KV, Durable Objects and R2. Speaker bio: Greg is a Systems Engineer at Cloudflare working on Cloudflare Pages in the Emerging Technologies and Incubation department. Cloudflare Pages is a full-stack developer platform and they were very excited to add support for Remix at the end of last year. Before Pages, Greg worked with Cloudflare's Speed Team where he learned to appreciate the Network tab of DevTools. Greg has also contributed to the Web Almanac and numerous open-source projects, and, most importantly, he has his fingers crossed for enough snow to go skiing after Remix Conf! ⛷ Learn more at https://remix.run/conf/2022/speakers/greg-brimble

"Making Slow Responses Seem Fast with Stale while Revalidate" by Scott Smerchek at #RemixConf 💿

The Cache-Control header has been around since HTTP/1.1 in 1997, yet for many of us, it's not something we think about every day. The stale-while-revalidate extension was proposed as early as 2010, but was only widely supported in modern browsers in 2019. In this talk, I will show you the power of stale-while-revalidate and how you can take advantage of it in your Remix project to make your slow responses seem really fast! Speaker bio: Scott's a software engineer with over a decade of experience building web applications for healthcare enterprises from frontend, to APIs, and even infrastructure. Now Scott works at UDisc, a quickly growing disc golf company that is pushing the sport forward through technology.

"Web Vitals: The Importance of Measuring a Great Web Experience" by Erick Tamayo at #RemixConf 💿

Nowadays, building a working web application is much more than deploying it to production. The impact on the way your app is delivered to your end-users is also important. Making your app experience better translates into more engagement, conversions, and revenue. That's why it is also vital (pun intended) to know how your application behaves, and that's where Web Vitals help us get a clear overview of how our app is doing. Speaker bio: Erick Tamayo was born in the Dominican Republic. He currently lives in Calgary Canada with his family. Erick's currently developing Metronome which is a tool for Real User Monitoring (RUM) specifically for Remix. He's been following Remix since 2020 and decided to join the community in 2021. Since then he's loved everything about Remix and its community! Learn more at https://remix.run/conf/2022/speakers/erick-tamayo

"Remix 3D Blast" by Nick Small at #RemixConf 💿

Whether you want to progressively enhance a traditional website or build an immersive 3D experience, Remix gives us a powerful and fun framework to create with WebGL and three.js. After deploying a 3D Remix experience to production, I've found that all the patterns that Remix provides are just as valuable even when we're not rendering to the DOM. In this talk, I'll show off some zany 3D antics to explain how Remix and react-three-fiber can work together to help you build fantastic experiences for your users. We'll focus on: getting react-three-fiber set up in a Remix app; using nested routes and layouts to render a scene; moving scene state to the server with loaders and actions; streaming dynamic 3D resources to the client using resource routes; and finally, transitions and optimistic UI... in 3D! 💿 Rachel the Remix Disc will offer some nifty optimization tips along the way. It'll be a GL-and-web-fundamentals-fuelled blast! Speaker bio: Nick is a long-time dev of many disciplines: JavaScript, full-stack, native, operating systems, game dev. He's motivated by improving people's lives by finding really bad software in consequential places and making it better. Nick's been an early employee at mission-driven companies like Shopify and Devoted Health; empowered citizens and civil servants at US Digital Service, Defense Digital Service, and the NATO mission in Afghanistan; and volunteered on projects to strengthen democracy and build municipal Open Data pipelines. These days Nick lives in the mountains with his wife and kids, and he's focused on tooling to let more people write more accessible software with fewer bugs. Go Remix. Active hobbies include: constructing crosswords (poorly), flying planes (successfully) (so far), building better houses (fingers crossed).

When To Fetch: Remixing React Router - Ryan Florence

Recorded live at Reactathon 2022. Learn more at https://reactathon.com When To Fetch: Remixing React Router We've learned that fetching in components is the quickest way to the worst UX. But it's not just the UX that suffers, the developer experience of fetching in components creates a lot of incidental complexity too: data fetching, data mutations, busy spinners, optimistic UI, error handling, form state, network race conditions, user event interruptions, and all the code that holds it together gets pretty difficult! As we've built Remix, we've gotten a lot of practice leaning on React Router's nested route abstraction to solve all of these problems all at once. Now, millions of React Router apps in production can get the same benefits because we've moved the responsibility of knowing When To Fetch into React Router itself! About Ryan Florence Ryan is the co-founder of Remix, co-creator of React Router, and co-founder of React Training. Event production and post-production by EventLoop.
