Michele Bertoli (YPlan) - Inline Styles
Michele Bertoli kicked off the talks with a controversial topic of inline styles. "Trust me", he said, "I've got the CSS is JS skill on LinedIn". He went over a few tools and pointers to get you started if you fancy venturing into these dangerous waters, most notably:

CSS modules - import CSS modules into your component using Webpack or Browserify
John Maxwell & Peter Horne (Music Glue) - News from the Vanguard - adopting React, Relay and GraphQL
John Maxwell and Peter Horne from Music Glue gave an exciting talk on how they use GraphQL and React to do schema-driven development. They are essentially using GraphQL to render React component layouts.
