Introduction to Nuxt and Headless CMS - Alessandro Giordo

An introduction to how Nuxt works, as well as how to setup Nuxt with a headless CMS (WordPress or others) and how this can improve your workflow.

Frontend State Management with React Apollo - Tatenda Chawanzwa

State management has come along since the JQuery days (when arguably there was no need to handle frontend application state). With the burgeoning of single page applications has come the need for better state management, enter frameworks such as flux, redux, vuex and NGRX to name a few which all serve the big three, React, Vue and Angular.

In this talk, Tatenda Chawanzwa will look at new upcoming state management for Graphql. Specifically, he will talk on react-apollo, how to integrate with React, fire Queries/Mutations and update the local cache created by React apollo. He will also delve into how we can implement a global state store for even local variables with the @client directive. This way we can completely do away the need for redux and use react-apollo in built cache. He will also look at how we can write simple tests for this.
