Our first meetup of 2017!!!! Milwaukee this year is going to be a crazy ride in the tech industry and you can't be the one missing out. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
React. It's so hot right now. Angular 1 searches are declining on StackOverflow, and React and Angular 2 are taking over as the front-end frameworks of choice.

Join us to find out why so many teams are choosing React. We'll discuss the basics of building a React application - the Who, What, and Why. Then we'll dive into the How. We will look at how to easily get started building a React app, using the create-react-app tool. We'll talk about setup, development, testing, and deployment with create-react-app.
Steven Hicks is a full-stack web developer with over 15 years experience. He believes in clean, readable, and maintainable code. Steve likes to use the right tool for the job, especially if the right tool is JavaScript. He strongly believes that if you ain't falling, you ain't learning. When he isn't crushing 1s and 0s or playing with his kids, you can find Steve at a triathlon, on his mountain bike, or in a climbing gym.

If you are new to React or a Pro, this Meetup will help you make your case in a boardroom or over some beers on why React. We welcome all levels of experience and anyone looking to get more involved in the Milwaukee tech scene.
