Red Queen will be teaming up with Guru to bring you talks, workshops, and presentations brought to you by talent from different Philly based companies.

This meetup we are excited to bring you the following talks:

Ivana Veliskova 6:30PM - 7:00PM
Title: Confessions of an Imposter: How to Continue to Succeed.
Description: Everyone experiences Imposter Syndrome sometime in their life, even if they have been in a particular field for a while. As a career changer, I experience Imposter Syndrome every day and I’ve learned some things to help me cope with my Imposter Syndrome and prove to myself that I actually deserve to be where I am.

Kyle Cannon 7:00PM - 7:30PM
Title: Large Application Organization in React
Description: Tips to help control the maze of code in large scale react applications.

Kevin Diem 7:30PM - 8:00PM
Title: Making React Reactive - Using RxJS to simplify data flow + take back control of asynchronous updates
Description: Sagas? Nah! Just because async callbacks and setState don't pair very well doesn't mean we need all that boilerplate. RxJS can help you to write cleaner and more reliable async code and more with minimal overhead.

Finally from 8:00PM - 9:00PM we will leave the floor open to mingle with each other and the speakers! Get to know the community and enjoy yourself!

Food and drink will be provided. This will be a monthly recurring event so tell your friends and come dive deeper into the React ecosystem with us!
