Back in May, Canva kicked off a series of quarterly tech events with an evening of talks on performance and scaling. For our second event in August, we decided to focus on everything front-end.
We were fortunate again to have our Chief Evangelist Guy Kawasaki in town to welcome everyone. Then we had three talks on the night covering the technology decisions you need to make as you scale from a prototype to a 5-million user product, the new hotness of React vs the maturity of Backbone, and how our front-end team’s processes have changed since we’ve grown. These talks are available on the Canva YouTube Channel as well as embedded below.
