Northwest Missouri State University alumnus Nick Larson returned to the campus Oct. 25 to share a live app-building demonstration using the popular React library by Facebook.
Larson, an active member of the professional advisory team for Northwest’s School of Computer Science and Information Systems, is a chief technologist and consultant for Object Partners, Inc.
Larson showed students how to use React to quickly build a modular, lightning-fast user interface to highlight public code contributions on GitHub, a popular cloud-based code sharing and collaboration site. Starting with a wire-frame sketch of the desired application, Larson showed students how to progressively decompose and configure components.
During the 50-minute presentation, Larson built the components, styled them, and added functionality to show how quickly a useful application could be developed.
Course assistants Kranthi Kumar Parelly, Sravanthi Modali and Bhavishya Arelli helped organize the event and assist interested participants in accessing the code.
