We are happy to share with you a new initiative we’ve been working on recently: Frontity Talks, a series of videos created by our DevRel team (JuanMa and Michael) to explain different topics about Frontity.
What is the aim of the Frontity Talks?
This initiative is born as a practical exercise from the DevRel team to learn, understand, and communicate in an effective way different topics and concepts about Frontity.
Each video can be considered as a casual learning session between JuanMa and Michael in which they choose a few subjects to explain to each other. The topics are usually selected based on the questions and concerns that users share in the community forum.
We think this is also a great way to help the community understand some Frontity concepts in a better way.
How can you help improve these talks?
There are some good ways to get involved and help us improve these videos:
- Suggest topics or questions that you’d like to be explained by the DevRel team. You can use the forum, leave your suggestions in the comments section of each Youtube video or send them to us via Twitter. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #AskFrontity so we can keep track of them easily.
- Give feedback regarding the sessions. Was the content helpful? Did you learn something? Do you consider that a topic should be explained in a more detailed way? Any constructive criticism can give us a new perspective, help us improve and enrich these sessions so they add more value both to our team and the community.
Are there any Frontity Talks already published?
Yes! We have published two Frontity Talks so far:
Frontity Talks 01:
wp-source & CSS in JS
In the first learning session:
- JuanMa reviews all methods and properties available from the
wp-sourcepackage (this package provides methods and structures that can be used to access the data got from the REST API from your React components).
- CSS in JS: Michael shows how to create a styled component and how to define styles based on props values (Frontity uses CSS in JS to apply styles to React components).
Frontity Talks 02: Pagination example &
wp-source (state & fetch)
In this talk:
- Michael goes through how to create pagination buttons in a Frontity project. This explanation can be considered as an extension of the workshop that he hosted at JSNation Live. Here’s the repo too.
wp-source(state & fetch): JuanMa shows how this package uses the state to store the info retrieved by its fetch method.
We look forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions! 🙂
