Digital Café: How to Make Front-end Independently of Portal Technology
We set up another event for our clients; this time we discussed new front-end building approaches from developer's perspective.
Lundegaard Digital Café is a platform for meeting with our clients and partners, where we show our view of a particular digital world topic in a casual atmosphere over coffee and a yummy breakfast. We bring in real case studies and discuss our guests’ experiences.
June Café’s topic was our approach called "Union," which is about writing modern front-end independent of portal technologies.
Furthermore, Jiri talked about the challenges we have been facing and the issues the concept deals with. He demonstrated the scheme of the principle and Union architecture in the context of portals and CMS.
Tomáš Konrády, Senior Front-end Developer followed up on Jirka Kadlec’s talk. Tomas is the father of React-Union project, which is a set of tools above React framework focused on CMS and portal systems application development. Tomas described in great detail how the project works and what development situations it helps to solve. In the second part of this presentation, he showed a demo along with the ways to connect to a web portal.
At the beginning of this year, we built React-Union as an open source. We are gradually collecting feedback and constantly adding new components. The project is available on Github.
During the presentations of all of our experienced developers there was an ongoing lively discussion with our guests, who were posing detailed and specific questions about the implementation of the solutions presented. At the same time, we were enjoying yummy refreshments and coffee. The discussion went on even long after the event was over, which we are super happy about. We have received good feedback and inspiration for more topics for the next Digital Café that we are planning to do after the summer holidays.
