Pete Hunt, a software engineer at Facebook, presented about ReactJS. ReactJS is an open-source framework that started in Facebook as a way to speed up rendering in the DOM, and Pete is currently the largest contributor to the project. React works by maintaining a virtual representation of the DOM, and any changes are simulated before being carried out in the browser. This minimizes the slower transformations that are rendered in the browser.
