The tragedy of scale
Learn about Atlassian’s learnings from growing the frontend development of Jira to over one million lines of code.
Nadia Makarevich, Hannes Obweger at ReactConf AU 2020
What do farmers 200 years ago and today’s software developers have in common? Why use the word "tragedy" to describe it when it's not tragic at all? Join us for this tale of mistakes, revelations and human nature! We’ll share Atlassian’s learnings from growing the frontend development of Jira to over one million lines of code, dive into coding patterns, practices, and traps to avoid when writing scalable React applications, share how our React architecture looks today, discuss state management, and why we used Redux at the beginning and then abandoned it.
