SydJS.S — Showcase

Sep 19, 2018 · Sydney, Australia

According to an online thesaurus there's 1309 synonyms for "think" and 795 synonyms for "mill", and it must be right as it's online. When we asked it about "thinkmill", though, it had no answer. There's only one!

This small team of women and men are are working hard to not only make great code and a great company, they're also working to make the Sydney community and the global state of JavaScript better each day.


# (How we are) Documenting React Components
by Ben Conolly

Whether you are writing code just for internal consumption, or for an open source library, good documentation will save you a lot of headaches.

Ben Conolly wants to walk you through the way Thinkmill have been thinking about documentation, the tools the journey has led them to use (and create) to help them, and the learnings from that process.

# React Select v2 and the future
by Jed Watson

In December last year, over one in seven people installing react-dom also installed react-select.

The orginal project had grown way beyond Jed's original use-case and had become one of the most popular react components: with nearly a million downloads per month.

In January this year, Jed and the team undertook a huge body of work to modernise react-select and to make it even more successful.

In July this year, 6 months, 11 Alpha releases, 7 Beta releases, well over 120 features, and 2 breaking features later saw the release of version 2.0.0
