Hello there, good folks!

Hot off the heels of the reboot of Manchester React, here is the agenda for next month's meetup.

I'm thrilled to announce that Michele Bertoli will be joining us. Michele is a Front End Engineer with a passion for beautiful UIs. He works at Facebook and authored the book React Design Patterns and Best Practices.

Painless Testing — by Michele Bertoli, Facebook

Testing UIs has always been a hard job. In the components era, there are new tools available that transform completely the way we approach testing. One of the hottest is Jest, and we'll see how it provides an all-in-one testing solution that saves us time and headache.

We also have a couple of lightning talks:

- React Storybook walkthrough by Nick Mitchell
- Declarative Data Fetching by Chris Hale

Also, if you have a little story to tell about React from this month, or have a question in mind, please keep it in mind for during our Introduction section.

- 7pm: Doors / Pizza / Beer / Chat
- 7:15pm: Introduction / catchup / stories
- 7:30pm: Painless Testing by Michele Bertoli
- 8:15pm: Lightning talks
- 8:45pm: Finish up, go to Common?

MadLab has a 50 seat capacity, hence our attendee limit. However, there were approximately 20 no-shows at our last meetup, so if you're on the waiting list before the event, and you're a risky devil and willing to stand, feel free to pop along.
