favourite conference talks of the year! And again I found some incredible gems that I can’t
wait to share with you!

React’s context API has be slumbering inside for a while. With one of the latest releases, they decide to open
this API to everybody. It’s very nice to use if you like render props. If not, there’s always the new hooks
API that makes it even easier.
TypeScript works amazingly well with context. You don’t need to provide any type definitions at all. Only in some

TypeScript comes with a ton of built in generic types that ease your development workflow. Here’s a list of all built-in generics, with examples!

Type predicates in TypeScript help you narrowing down your types based on conditionals. They’re similar to type guards, but work on functions.
They way the work is, if a function returns true, change the type of the paramter to something more useful.

If you follow me you know that I’m super late to the React game. It was not until functional components showed up that I got

line-up. And by looking at the people who already registered interest, I’m sure that there’s a ton of
great stuff coming up.

I’m writing these lines as I fly back from an excellent Angular Connect. I started public speaking a couple of years ago, and this particular talk will be one I’m going to remember for a long time. I think it’s easily on par with my most favourite speaking experience that I had back in 2013 with Breaking Development.

When starting with TypeScript it took not much time to stumble upon some of the type system’s odds. Odds that make a lot of sense if you take a closer look. In this article I want to show you why and how in some cases, TypeScript allows non-matching method signatures.
