Hi everyone! 👋

Welcome to the last ReactJS Girls London of the year!

Thanks to YLD for organising and Skyscanner for hosting and providing the food & drinks.


1) Ana Rodrigues ( @ohhelloana ) - Front End developer at Hactar

* Blog like you mean it *

There are countless articles out there telling you that every developer and designer should have their own blog. But where is the discussion of the human side of building your blog? This talk will cover my experience, the communities that will support you and how to battle the self-doubt and fears that can get in the way of creating your own personal playground. And since it’s ReactJSGirls, we’re going to talk about GatsbyJS.

2) Justyna Kałużka (@jmkaluzka ) - Software Engineer @ Skyscanner

* From React JS to React Native - how a frontend developer can start with mobile? *

Heard about React Native - that magical framework where you write the code once and get the same features on both Android and iOS? And all of this even using JavaScript so you can reuse your React components. I will cover a basic example of a gallery - how to set up the environment, layout and style your components, and implement some user interaction. All of that in a short demo to give you the overview how to start with mobile!

If you would like to speak at our future meetup, send Raquel a message.
