Turning text into video with DraftJS

21st February 2017 in London at CodeNode

There are 3 other SkillsCasts available from React London February Meetup

Rob Squires and Alex Norton will be telling us their experiences at BBC News Labs where they've made media editing tools to allow journalists to create audio and video as easily as a text. Don't miss this month's React London!

At BBC News Labs we’ve built a suite of media editing tools that allow journalists to create audio and video content from a UI as familiar as a text editor. One library has been key to us delivering this ambition, DraftJS. We’d like to share the highlights (+ challenges) of using powerful library.
