## Migrating to React: Iteratively Modernizing a Webcast Player Frontend
Gabriel Ricard, a Senior Developer at West Digital Media Solutions, provides an overview of a multi-year project to update a Flash-based webcast player to HTML5. Learn why they eventually chose React for their frontend (and how they convinced management to let them rewrite it), how they gradually migrated their code, problems they encountered along the way and their solutions.
## Componentizing WebVR with React
Mike Thomas, a WebVR development consultant, shares how to integrate React with the popular WebVR framework, A-FRAME. Traditionally, A-FRAME is developed in plain HTML and JS, which prevents the perks of single page frameworks such as React, such as reusable components and component state. Mike specializes in multi-player social VR spaces for education, business and real estate.
