Looking back at five years of React at Instana

This article marks the start of an article series in which we would like to look back at one of our earliest technology choices: The selection of React. React is being used since day one as our core UI library to develop Instana’s user interface. Since Instana recently celebrated its fifth birthday, we believe that this is an excellent opportunity to reflect on this architecture decision. This article series will touch many relevant past, current and future aspects concerning user interface development at Instana.

Check out the first article in this blog series which describes How we learned about React, what the vision was for Instana and what made us choose React.
