Hi! 👋

Summer is (almost) over, and Manchester Web Meetup is back with another meetup.

Thanks to YLD for organizing and providing food and drinks, and Eagle Labs for hosting.


1) Chris Grice ( @chrisgrice) - Software Engineering Manager, Sainsbury's

* A Full Stack Introduction to GraphQL*

2) James Wright (@jamesseanwright) - Software Developer, YLD

*Manipulating the Web Audio API with JSX and custom renderers*

JSX has proven to be an invaluable complement to React; its XML syntax provides us with a declarative means of describing element trees, avoiding the verbosity of calling React.createElement(). How does this addition to the JavaScript ecosystem lend itself to other technologies? In this talk, we’ll see how one can use JSX and a custom renderer to consume the Web Audio API, a non-visual means of outputting content to the browser.
