After far too long, the Boston React meetup is back in a new venue, Fitbit!
Our first speaker will be Rahul Sharma, founder of Jobletics, and tech Lead Vinko. http://bostinno.streetwise.co/2015/11/10/jobletics-boston-restaurant-last-minute-staffing-app/
Jobletics matches restaurants with qualified workers for last-minute shifts. Uses ReactNative and Firebase for real-time logistics. This is an opportunity to hear about real-world experiences using this exciting technology.
Jonathan Kaufman, @kauffecup will discuss his Election Insights project: http://react.rocks/example/election-insights . The Election Insights (http://electioninsights.mybluemix.net/) app (code here (https://github.com/kauffecup/news-insights)) uses Alchemy News API (http://www.alchemyapi.com/products/alchemydata-news) to get all of the data. Alchemy performs natural language processing on 75,000+ news sources as they are published. It extracts entities and keywords, categorizes the article, performs sentiment analyses, and a whole lot more.
"We do have a parking garage under the building and at that time of night there is some street parking available. We are also right next to the court house silver line station and a five minute walk from south station."
