React.js has seen some stellar growth over the past couple of years, and its adoption doesn't seem to be slowing down.

In this session I'll give a short introduction to the framework, and share some of my experiences of introducing React into new & legacy projects.

As part of the session, I'll try to answer the following points (time allowing!):

- What is React? Where did it come from?

- What does a React component look like? What's JSX?

- What does a typical workflow look like? What are the options?

- How do projects like React Router and Redux fit into the picture? Are they hard to integrate?

- What are the use cases for React?

- Where can I see React used in production?

- What's the future for React?

- How do I get started?!
