Downtown ReactJS Meetup

201 E 6th St

The Downtown ReactJS Meetup is first and foremost community driven. We provide an environment where developers gather and share experiences working with React and the frontend ecosystem. Our speakers present on a full spectrum of development from fun side projects, tips on keeping up to date with the current technologies, and applying the latest React functionalities. In this meetup we present The Book Pundit application: an application that searches, retrieves, and displays books along with reader comments. We begin by outlining the application architecture, including the frontend composition, backend services, and the client-server contract. Next, we go through setting up webpack for local development, building for production, and deploying to Netlify. Finally, we do a deep dive into the internals of the React application's functionality: lazy loading & hooks, state management with redux, and handling async effects with sagas. Come join us and be part of the Downtown ReactJS Meetup Community!
