Come downtown for food, drink, talks, and socializing. We'll be talking about ReactJS and related technologies. Talks/topics to be covered:

Modularizing Accessibility by Katie Foster

One in 5 Americans have or currently deal with disabilities in their everyday life, and across the world that figure can be even higher. There is a strong need for accessibility on the web. A good option to make websites accessible is React: bite-sized chunks without repeating your work. We'll walk through some accessibility basics and a few examples of implementing it in your code.

Katie Foster is the Lead Front-End Developer at Ideas by Nature, a Denver-based Blockchain agency. She spends most of her time juggling multiple projects and building out UI libraries.


Create Mobile Apps using React-Native with Expo & Snack by Rahim Rahman

Whether you're just starting out or a seasoned React-Native developer, here's your chance to learn more about Expo & one of Expo's development tools: Snack. Expo is the fastest way to build native iOS & Android apps using Javascript and React. We'll talk a little bit about React-Native in general, go through getting started with Expo, write some sloppy code and publish 1-2 apps that you can download (hopefully not another Todo app) to your iPhone or Android devices.

Rahim Rahman is a Full Stack Developer with Aptos, Inc., and currently focuses on helping with the mobile application development efforts using React-Native.
