We’re sponsoring JSNation Live 2020!

We are very happy to be sponsoring this year’s JSNation Live (June 18-19), the biggest JavaScript conference in the cloud. This is such a great opportunity to connect with fellow developers of the JavaScript community.

Here’s everything you need to know about Frontity’s presence at JSNation Live.

We’re hosting a talk

Our co-founder Pablo Postigo is giving a lightning talk on “Building React frontends for WordPress” on Thursday, June 18 at 19:10 CEST. Check out the full schedule and get your free ticket here: https://live.jsnation.com/.

Virtual booth and live demos

Our DevReal team members JuanMa Garrido and Michael Burridge are hosting a few live demos at our virtual booth. They will show you how to create a basic project with Frontity using one of the default themes, look at creating a custom component and styling it. Finally they will show how to deploy the project to production. After each demo, there will be a short Q&A session. Get your questions ready!

Here’s the schedule of the live demos:

Day 1 – Thursday, June 18

  • 17:25 CEST
  • 18:55 CEST

Day 2 – Friday, June 19

  • 17:20 CEST
  • 18:50 CEST

Over the two-day event, we’ll be hanging out at our virtual booth and interacting with the community. Stop by to say hi, join our live demos or learn more about Frontity!

Frontity JSNation Contest

We are running a contest for the JSNation Live attendees. In order to participate, you have to build a website with Frontity (you can use a Frontity theme as a basis or create your own custom theme) and submit it before the 3rd of July.

All entries will get a swag bag (who doesn’t want a Frontity t-shirt and stickers? 😄 ) and two lucky winners will receive a consulting session with the team. We also encourage you to show your work to the world with the hashtag #MadeWithFrontity.

Check out the Frontity JSNation Contest page for more details on how to enter and the contest rules. We look forward to receiving your submissions!

Workshop: Build a React-based Theme for WordPress with Frontity

Last Monday, June 15, our DevRel Michael Burridge hosted a 3-hours workshop on how to create a React-based theme for WordPress using Frontity. It was a great experience and we received very positive feedback!

Update: for anyone who missed the workshop, you can watch it now on Youtube and check out the code and steps that Michael followed on this GitHub repo.

We look forward to seeing you at the JSNation Live! 🙂
