Naomi Jacobs (, Engineer at Benchling, presents:

"Get Hooked on React Hooks"

As of ReactConf 2018, classes are out and hooks are the future! Come learn about the newest React feature - what they are, how to use them, and why you would want to use them. We'll do a demo, discuss tradeoffs, and have time for Q&A.


Mannah Kallon (, Software Engineer at Stitch Fix, presents:

"The Life and Times of a Square Peg: Navigating a Culture that isn’t Yours"

I am a middle-aged Black man and I’m willing to bet that you are not.

Feeling like I don’t quite fit in has given me a unique perspective on tech, community, and the future of what it means to be an engineer. Let's take this opportunity to explore identity, culture and how we might shed some light on our blind spots.
