Lifting and Shifting the Entire React Ecosystem into New Languages


How do you prove out a new language, type system, or virtual machine implementation? How do you accelerate maturity while you wait for organic adoption and deployment of your new language at scale? In this talk, we’ll discuss how lifting and shifting nearly 500KLOC of React, Jest, and GraphQL into a new language, VM, and type system rapidly accelerated maturity and also highlighted latent issues in React and TypeScript.
