Join us in downtown Austin! This month's meetup will be hosted at the Galvanize (http://www.galvanize.com/campuses/austin-2nd-street-district/) campus in the 2nd street district.

There will be plenty of food, drinks and enlightenment. We'll be migrating over to the Gingerman (http://thegingerman.com/austin/) for an informal social event after the night's talks. This month's lineup is:

React + Redux, an Emberist Perspective

It seems like a new Javascript framework comes out every week. Is there any value in trying to keep up with them? Probably not all of them, but learning a new framework or library does have its advantages. This month I'll be talking about the value of learning a new framework and my experience with React and Redux.

Michael thinks deeply about how users will interact with the interfaces that he creates. He has designed and built thoughtful, user-friendly products for massive companies, early stage startups and everything in between. From gathering requirements, building prototypes, conducting user research, and designing interfaces, to managing engineering priorities, writing and reviewing code, and managing QA; Michael understands the steps required to get a product from idea to launch. @swany10012 (https://twitter.com/swany10012)| GitHub (mswanson) (https://github.com/mswanson)

Don't forget to thank our wonderful sponsors!

We'd like to give a big hug to our venue sponsor, Galvanize (http://www.galvanize.com/campuses/austin-2nd-street-district/), for hooking us up with a super sweet downtown location. We're incredibly excited about the space!


There is a paid garage in the Galvanize building that has reasonable prices after hours. We also recommend taking public transit, looking for street parking, parking in the surface lot at Guadalupe and 3rd or using the City Hall or Violet Crown parking garages.

How to find us in the Galvanize building

Take the elevator to the second floor to check in at the front desk. They will direct you to the correct lecture space.

We'd love to hear from you!
