In this talk, we're going to have a little fun with the React community by revealing a secret: React has always had a plan to eliminate PHP from the world, and now we see the final superweapon! We'll dive into the world of React Server Components, exploring their origins, their impact on web development, and the obvious similarities between this (relatively) new pattern and PHP.
Through a technical exploration, we'll compare and contrast approaches to rendering, data handling, and more. We'll attempt to demystify hydration, server-side rendering, and bundling, and provide a comprehensive overview of these key concepts in web development.
We'll also reveal the fierce resistance of a group of veteran PHP developers nostalgic for the Empire who are standing up to the React Republic!
This talk aims to be an educational journey through one of the newest React patterns, revealing its similarities to one of the oldest languages on the web.
