Sebastian Markbage on The React Core Team, React Fiber and Web Assembly

Sebastian tells us the story of working at Facebook, working on data visualizations frameworks and looking at web solutions before getting into React. Once he discovered React, he started to use it for art and graphics. Sebastian describes his experience when React was first introduced to the JS community. There was a lot of criticism and disapproval in the beginning which died down once a greater ecosystem was built around the framework. To Sebastian, having an ecosystem and unification are vital when creating new technology.

React Fiber came into existence after a lot of experimentation with Facebook. He describes one of the key features of React Fiber being functionality — everything is async and immutable. One other project briefly discussed in the interview was ReactVR, and how it started.

Lastly, Sebastian is asked about his interest in Web Assembly and upcoming news to expect from React.
