React Stack with Tejas Kumar

JavaScript fatigue. This phrase has been used to describe the confusion and exhaustion around the volume of different tools required to be productive as a JavaScript developer. Frameworks, package managers, typing systems, state management, GraphQL, and deployment systems–there are so many decisions to make.

In addition to the present-day tooling choices, a JavaScript developer needs to watch the emerging developments in the ecosystem. ReactJS is evolving at a rapid clip, and newer primitives such as React Hooks and React Suspense allow developers to handle concurrency and networking more robustly.

Tejas Kumar works with G2i, a company that connects React developers with organizations that are looking for high-quality engineers. His role at G2i is head of vetting, which requires him to assess engineers for their competency in JavaScript-related technologies. Tejas joins the show to discuss the modern stack of technologies that a React developer uses to build an application. Full disclosure: G2i, where Tejas works, is a sponsor of Software Engineering Daily.

Tejas is also speaking at Reactathon, a San Francisco JavaScript conference taking place March 30th and 31st in San Francisco. This week we will be interviewing speakers from Reactathon, and if you are interested in JavaScript and the React ecosystem then stay tuned, and if you hear something you like, you can check out the Reactathon conference in person.
