Presentations will start promptly at 6:30.

== Proposed Schedule ==

• Using React with Real-time data from Firebase. (Asa Miller)

Asa will discuss setting up real-time communication between desktop and mobile and how to to configure it for communication between components instead of passing props.

• Property Testing for React. (Dave McCabe)

In property testing, you describe properties that a function or component should have, and the computer tries to find counterexamples. Dave will compare property testing with other testing methods, walk through some simple examples, and show how to use property testing on React components.
