Come downtown for food, drink, talks, and socializing. We'll be talking about ReactJS and related technologies.
Talks/topics to be covered:
Drawing on a Map with deck.gl by Doug Whitney
Peel back the layers as we explore an off-label use case for Uber’s deck.gl data visualization framework by creating a polygon drawing tool. Learn how React, Mapbox GL and deck.gl complement each other to enable interactive visualization and exploration of large datasets.
React + D3: frenemies or bff? by Dave Thompson
These two popular JS libraries use wildly different API paradigms and seem incompatible at first glance. React is known for declarative components and one-way state management, while D3 is famous for powerful data binding and SVG abstractions. We will cover D3 basics with simple code examples and then integrate our visualizations with the React component lifecycle to build a working app.
