This meetup, we are excited to bring you the following talks:

Speaker: Angel Young | 6:30 PM - 6:45 PM
Title: Reacting to Mentorship
Description: In this talk, I will explore my journey toward a mentorship with Ryan Yurkanin and the first React app I built during it.

Angel Young is a Freelance Web Developer. She attended The New York Code + Design Academy (which is now closed) for Full Stack Web Development from January-April of 2018. She has been looking for a full-time job ever since. She also is President of Panorama Toastmasters and you probably have seen her at different tech meetups in Philadelphia.

Speaker: Gabriella DiVentura | 7:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Title: Building Faster Web Apps with Next.js
Description: Learn the differences and benefits of using Next.js vs Create-React-App

Gabriella DiVentura is a self-taught developer and newly transplanted Frontend Engineer at Guru. Her recent obsessions include generative art and learning how to yo-yo.


Speaker: Zak Butcher | 7:40 PM - 8:10 PM
Title: You’ve heard about clean code - how about clean data?
Description: Data isn’t always sexy, but don’t let looks fool you. A little normalization goes a long way towards keeping your data and your application organized. Learn how Reselect and Normalizr can be combined to boost developer morale and reduce your broken monitor count today!

Zak is a software developer at Pariveda Solutions with more than 2 and a half years of experience building enterprise react applications. He also has experience with AWS and MEAN and LAMP stack development

Musical Artist: Seraiah Nicole | 8:15 PM - 9:00 PM
We're really excited to try out something new this time around - we're going to cap off our evening of awesome talks with some music! Seraiah is a Philly native and will be playing right after our last talk!

As usual we will be streaming the event over on our Twitch! Join the chat and ask you questions, one of our mods will speak up during the Q&A !

Food and drink will be provided. This will be a monthly recurring event, the third Tuesday of each month, so tell your friends and come dive deeper into the React ecosystem with us!

** If you (or your company) are using React and are interested in having talent from your team come out to speak, please drop us a line at [masked] **
