What we're about

Techie Brekkie Edinburgh is a monthly meetup with a simple goal – to bring together techies in the city and provide a round table discussion over breakfast. An expert guest speaker will kick off each session to stimulate debate on the hot topics within software development, data, architecture, delivery, testing and UX.

This group is dedicated to the needs and interests of the Edinburgh Tech Community so if you would like to see a specific area covered or indeed would like to be a speaker get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.

We also have a few topics in mind so why not sign up and we’ll keep you updated so you can pick out the most relevant Techie Brekkie for you!

Please note, this group isn’t open to sales or recruitment professionals.

Techie Brekkie #1 / Michael Antczak / Managing State in React

Managing state in any application can be a challenge. There are a lot of things to consider: location, API calls, performance, ease of development, testing, robustness, etc. In any given project, it is not usually obvious at which point exactly things went wrong and we end up with a situation that’s difficult to handle. In this Techie Brekkie, we will discuss the options available to us when we are developing an application with React or React Native. Michael Antczak - @AntczakMichael Michael’s first computer was a ZX Spectrum with 16KB memory, although if you call him old, he will most certainly deny it! He is based in CodeBase where he works in biggles at large, building complex applications. He is a React and Node.js Edinburgh meetups organiser. Michael is also a CTO of a new startup that is going to build software for the subsea industry. He is a graduate from the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and a mentor at Code Your Future. He is also an ex-glider pilot who dreams of getting back to the sky one day... On the day.... You don't need to bring anything other than yourself, a desire to join the discussion and of course an appetite. We'll meet from 8am for an 8.30am start (sharp!). Michael will kick off the round table with a 10 minute talk then we will discuss until circa 9.30am, with networking afterwards until 10am if you have time.
