:speaking_head: Talks

:arrow_right: Rakesh Srinivasan - React Server Components
This discussion is designed to clarify the differences between client and server components, highlighting their respective advantages and disadvantages. Additionally, it will examine situations that determine the appropriate use of each type of component.

:arrow_right: Harshit Mehta – Dive into MongoDB Atlas Vector Search: a Primer
Learn about MongoDB Atlas’s new Vector Search offering and how developers can use this to do semantic searches on top of their application data. We’ll then go through a demo where we show the experience of embedding/vectorizing a document, inserting it into the cluster, and finally querying that data to find semantically similar data to our questions.

:arrow_right: Berkay Özdemir – Why React
React has become one of the indispensable tools of modern web application development. This open source JavaScript library developed by Facebook is used to create user interfaces and is extremely effective in developing single page applications (SPA). React’s core approach is based on a component-based architecture; This breaks complex user interfaces into smaller, reusable parts.
This simplifies the development process and makes the code more organized. Additionally, it improves performance by using virtual DOM (Document Object Model) and makes the application run faster. React’s large community also provides an advantage in finding support and resources for developers. Therefore, React has become a common choice in the web development world.
