How does React really work? Let's find out. We'll write a simplified version of React from scratch, based on the real source code, including: jsx, fibers, reconciliation, hooks, and more.

The very interesting topic was not helped by the animations of the slides that were more suited to a rave party than to a technical presentation. The subject was too vast: perhaps it is better to focus on 2-3 points in React's "rewriting", rather than reaching the Hooks.
Great speaker, but changing your voice from time to time helps keep the concentration alive :)

These technical talks are the main reason for me to attend conferences!
The talk did a good job at showing that React is not "that complex": it can understood in depth in one hour.
The problem is that sometimes the code was "too much" to follow so quickly.
Maybe (but just maybe) anticipating each code screen with a smaller pseudocode version would have helped grasping it better...

Neither an expert on talks nor on react ... but the talks didn't trigger my curiosity, attention level dropped minutes by minutes.

Some suggestion:
Annoying animations in the slides.
Code examples were too fast.
Too flat tone of voice.
Missing mixing between funny parts and tech parts to ease tension and stimulate audience's focus level.

Don't take it personally, I really appreciate who gives talks.

The topic could be really interesting but there were too much stuff inside, so the presentation were really fast.
Animations of slides didn't helped.

I follow some comment down here...probably it would have been better with different talk and speech choices:
- tone of the voice (but it takes time to master, I know..)
- split the code into chunks or maybe just focus on few topics..
- probably slow down a bit?

I don't know, it's just my personal feedback, don't take it personally,
anyway an IMPRESSIVE work!
