About the talk
The web community is a fast moving community and over the recent years, many great frameworks and tools have emerged. Technology changes made in the past are not always the right ones today. This applies to Trello’s web stack too. CoffeeScript and Backbone were great choices 7 years ago but there are better tools and frameworks available now, so the Trello team decided to update its stack. But, how does one tackle this and how do you make sure you continue to innovate product-wise while modernizing its web stack? This is what we will discuss in this session -- main drivers for modernizing, the reasoning for choosing for TypeScript, React and GraphQL and will discuss our strategy implementing it, including two failed attempts. When leaving this session you will have learned which tactics to apply when modernizing a web stack and warning signs to be aware off.
