For backend services having a flexible API is a common practice that allows you to combine different APIs as if they were LEGO blocks and solve almost any business need. At Twilio we’ve been doing REST APIs for over 10 years. When we recently decided to ship a software that has a working UI out of the box, we still wanted to make sure that it is as flexible as our REST APIs. In this talk we’ll dive into how we ended up architecting a programmable UI platform using React that both allows you to have a fully working UI out of the box but also customize every functionality and user experience of it to your needs using the full power of React.

Very interessing talk, programmable components looks great!

This looks to me like hammering a react-like framework inside React. I'd rather stick to the original one

Very interesting point of view about UI customization. Thanks!

Good talk, but i don’t understand the real purpose. Interesting point if view for the UI

Very interesting talk. I liked it and learned something new. Also, the tetris demo was really funny. Thank you :)
