Hello to all of the original (as well as our new) F-Enders!

Our third Meetup will be held on Thursday 30th June from 6pm.

Keynote: Basarat Ali Syed

• 6pm: Doors Open - Networking, drinks, and catching up!

• 6.30pm Talk 1 Title: TypeScript - The best of the JavaScript transpilers

• Synopsis:

TypeScript allows you to use ES6/ES7 features today. But more than that it also allows powerful linting of your code in the form of a type system. This session will show you why you should use TypeScript today instead of waiting for the next big JavaScript transpiler.

• 7pm Break: Pizzas and Drinks

• 7.15pm Talk 2 Title: Why you should use ReactJS

• Synopsis:

Of the top three frontend frameworks you will most likely make a choice between for your next project, ReactJS is by far the lightest. That simplicity is the key to its long term maintainability and it's a framework that can be mastered very quickly if you already know JavaScript.

• 7.45pm Prizes: Collective Campus Prizes for best questions selected by Basarat!
