Isomorphic React in real life
React's ability to run on both the client and server is one of its biggest advantages, but there is little information on how this can be done in real applications. In this talk I will show you how we set up isomorphic React at State, and how you can do the same for your project.

Robert Knight (https://twitter.com/robknight_), Software Engineer at Mendeley

Tools & tricks for testing React applications
Rob will explore how to take advantage of React's use of JavaScript/JSX and the virtual UI to catch regressions earlier and make writing and debugging tests for React components easier and faster.

Building the worlds largest grocery shopping site with React
Tesco is the world’s third largest retailer, handling half the world’s online grocery shopping.React has transformed UI engineering at Tesco and helped the retailer build large scale isomorphic applications that are fast to run and quick to build.

Once again 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)

See you all then

Stu, Alex, Robbie and Amy
