Dan Shappir takes the lead in explaining React's core design, and how it's enabled by the Virtual DOM (VDOM). The panel discusses what the VDOM is, and how it differs from the actual browser DOM. Also how React leverages the VDOM and its reconciliation mechanism. Understanding these concepts is important in order to properly understand and make the best use of React.
