Hi guys

We are re-locating for the February React meetup to Facebook at Regents Place so we can fit everyone in more comfortably.

The format will stay the same-

6:30- Doors open for pizza and beers

7:00- Intro from Stu

7:10- 2 or 3 speakers each with 20 minutes to talk followed by Q&A

8:30/ 9:00- Everyone is welcome to stay for some more drinks

An Introduction to Flux
Guy Nesher (https://twitter.com/guynesher), Lead Developer at Conversocial (http://www.conversocial.com/)

While React is taking the limelight, it is Flux - Facebook new application architecture that is changing the way we build javascript applications.

In this talk we will discuss the concepts behind Flux and look at how it can be used to simplify single page applications through a few live applications we developed in Conversocial.

A Preview of React-Native
Robbie McCorkell, (https://twitter.com/robbiemccorkell) User Interface Developer at Red Badger (http://red-badger.com/)

On 28th January Facebook announced they are are extending the scope of React to include native mobile applications using the familiar patterns in React we know and love. Luckily we have been playing with an early access build of React-Native, and can show you what we know so far! Native development has never been so easy...

Show and Tell

Two or three lightning talks on projects currently being worked on by meetup members. These should be fast paced and last around 5 minutes. Please get in touch if you'd like to be involved- we will include lightning talks once every couple of meetups.

This month we have-

Rui Ramos- Great.dj - React powered playlists for parties!

Steve Heron- Application Layout for React

So we can avoid a long line at security while everyone signs a NDA you will be asked a couple of question when you RSVP yes for the meetup. (RSVPs will close 4 days before the meetup so this info can be given to Facebook so make sure you book your place with plenty of time)

The Facebook offices are brilliant - it will be a great venue for our meetups

See you all then

Stu, Alex, Robbie and Amy
