Build better apps using CRDTs [eng]
Have you ever wondered what makes using Linear feel so good? How can you make your app feel responsive, even on bad connections or without one at all? In this presentation, I will introduce CRDTs and explain how you can leverage them to achieve this. I will briefly introduce the libraries and tools that make building React apps using CRDTs a breeze and walk you through updating an existing app to take advantage of them. Additionally, I will share lessons I have learned from building collaborative apps throughout my career.
