Better than React: Why We Built Our Own UI Library

Sam has been working as a software developer at Odoo since 2019. He first joined the website team to work on the website builder, before joining the Javascript framework team and becoming one of the core contributors of Owl.


Sam is an expert on Javascript quirks and is particularly interested in reactive programming, software architecture and maintainable code. He spearheaded the efforts to write Owl 2's reactivity system.


Building a UI library from scratch is quite the undertaking, and it can seem absurd to even attempt to do so when there are already very well-known and battle-tested solutions, like Meta's React. In this talk, Sam delves into why using an off-the-shelf library may not be such a foregone conclusion and why Odoo decided to build their own instead.
