React Data Flow with Jared Forsyth

React started as just a view layer–it was the V in MVC. React has moved down the stack, with Flux, Redux, GraphQL, and Relay providing opinions for how React applications should structure their data flow.

Jared Forsyth works at Khan Academy, which uses React on the front end. At Khan Academy, Jared has experimented with many different ways of handling data flow for a React application, and in today’s episode we not only discuss the conventional tools for React applications, but also ClojureScript, Reframe, and Om/next, which are solutions for React data handling, that are outside of the world of raw JavaScript.
