React Alicante 2022 is an international conference held in one of the sunniest cities in Europe. The conference allowed visitors to hear from 33 international speakers and be part of 10 workshops for skills boosting covering various topics and around 600 visitors from all over the world.
⋮IWConnect is on the verge of the latest technology trends and never misses an opportunity to be part of interesting conferences. In that manner, part of our Microsoft team visited React Alicante 2022. In addition, read what they have to say and find out if the conference was worth visiting:
1.How satisfied were you with the event and how useful was the event?
My desire to be part of this event was big because I wanted to meet colleagues that are facing the same challenges I am, share some experiences, learn new things and see things from a different perspective.
I have never been to an event like this before and I can say this one was very interesting and useful for me. All the presentations were interesting and the presenters were also great. One of them was Macedonian, which made me feel proud and proved to me that we are the best😊
2. What was your favorite experience or moment of the event?
My favorite experience was communicating with other colleagues from everywhere around the world, and, of course, the 25 hours of traveling by taking 2 flights and a bus, and we still had the energy to continue with the workshop and go around the city with only 1 hour of sleep. Forget coffee, the adrenaline from conferences is amazing 🙂
We traveled to Alicante for about 25 hours ☹ We changed two airplanes and one bus and after 25 hours we were finally there. We got some rest for an hour and went to the workshop. After only one hour of sleep, I was surprised at how much energy and concentration I had on the workshop (maybe because it was about DAPPS 😊). After the workshop, we went for a walk because the town is amazing, and taking just one breath of fresh air made up for the lack of sleep.
It was the workshop. Even though my initial wish was to attend another one, it turned out to be amazing. In around 4 hours we learned new things and tried to make a workable POC. Even though we had to travel 25 hours taking only 1-hour rest (if we could call it a rest) before the workshop 😊.
3.What was your biggest takeaway from the event and what did you learn at the event?
We were able to hear quality content from quality presenters, but I also saw that we are on the verge of technology and up to date with the latest trends. My biggest takeaway from the event is the experience, contacts that we have made, way of presenting, new friendships.
I have learned a lot. It was a great experience, some of the presentations presented new things and I came up with a lot of new ideas I can implement in my daily job. One of the presentations covered exactly the area I am working on and that helped me a lot!
The event covered a lot of good topics and it was very well organized. The biggest takeaway of the event was meeting new people with the same daily routines as mine, sharing contacts, and experiences, learning new things, etc. There were many quality topics, great speakers, there were quite good and interesting things in the Front-end world discussed that I’ll deep dive in to get more information and I’ll try to make a small POC for the smart goals. Also, some of the things that I learned will help me a lot with the projects that I am currently working on.
4.Would you want to attend this event again in the future?
Yes, changes in the IT world are happening daily and we got to hear a lot of new things, so it was worth it!
Yes, it was great and if there is a chance, I would like to attend it again and maybe on the other side as a speaker 😊
