ReactJS for the win!

Meetup starts at 6:30pm, with 30 minutes of social time. Beginning at 7pm, Jeff Barczewski will present ReactJS and family for the win!

ReactJS is changing the way we build web and native apps. Come learn what makes ReactJS different from other MV* frameworks and why you should learn about it. ReactJS can be used alongside other frameworks; when partnered with react-router and flux it becomes a platform on which to build your software.

“I'll share my experience at ReactJS Conf and will illuminate where ReactJS is heading in the future. I'll explore React Native, which allows you to build native iOS and Android apps with instant round-tripping for rapid development. React Native answers the dream of reusing your JS code on all devices without sacrificing native UI and performance.

“Join me for an exciting night of challenging existing beliefs and embracing some new ideas for building JS apps.”


-------

Starting about 8:30pm, we'll move into a hacking session to experiment with the material that's been presented, and with JavaScript and Node.js in general.

Creative Circle will be sponsoring sodas and sandwiches, so come hungry, come thirsty, bring your laptop and be ready to code!

-------

Meeting will be in the ground floor of the historic Laclede Gas building. Please use Olive St. entrance, which has a black awning with 1017 on sides and L.G.L on front. After entering the building please take the first door on the left. That will be the doors for Second Street which is hosting the meetup.  Parking is on the street or in nearby paid garages and lots.  Parking meters are free after 7pm.

    Enjoyed the talk Jeff!! Am really excited to see how the react-native stuff plays out (maybe a sequel talk focusing on that in a few months after Android's supported?)

      Related to this: I know some people seemed interested in React Native, but were turned off by the fact that it is iPhone only initially, and the only way to get an app onto your own iPhone was to pay the $99/year Apple developer fee. On Monday, Apple released a beta of Xcode 7 that lets you put your own apps on your own device for free. You only pay the fee if you want to publish in the app store.

    This filled in a lot of my gaps in knowledge about React.

    It was ok. Not much more was revealed than reading a quick online article about React. I liked the presenter. He knew React well.

    Thanks for the talk Jeff! Sounds like something I will probably dive into further. And thanks to the sponsors and coordinators!
