Join Alex Banks for an in-depth discussion in this video Starting the presentation, part of Building a Polling App with Socket IO and React.js.
- [Voiceover] So now we're ready…to start joining our speakers, and joining a speaker's…going to be slightly different than joining…an audience member, because when we…join a speaker, we also need to collect…the presentation title.…So joining a speaker is actually like…starting the presentation.…So let's go into our components directory…and into our parts directory, and let's take a look…at that join form that we have for the audience members.…So we're going to use a form that's similar to this,…so what I'm going to go ahead and do is just…copy everything from this component,…and then I will right-click over this parts folder…and select New File, and then immediately I'm going…to save that file as JoinSpeaker.js.…
And I will paste the contents from our Join component…into this JoinSpeaker file.…Now, we need to make a couple of changes to this file.…First, we need to call the component JoinSpeaker.…And we also need to export here, on line 27,…the JoinSpeaker component.…The next thing that we need to do is…we're going to change this event handler here…
