What we're about

We are a group of web developers in the Grand Rapids, MI area. We discuss all aspects of developing for the web, from HTML, CSS, and Javascript to design, user experience, usability, accessibility, and tools.

Whether you write code, write content, design, or manage, when you work on the web there is a lot of common ground. Join us to learn from each other about best web practices, cross-browser compatibility, Javascript frameworks, style hacks, project management, and other web-related topics.

Our meetup is for the community, by the community. If there is a topic you would like to present, we'd love to hear from you! Submit a presentation idea here: https://forms.gle/EiQQ54jKh3iLAT4EA

Perhaps you'd like to underwrite our event? There are numerous perks to doing so. Drop us a line to discuss how you or your business can benefit as an event sponsor.

Thanks for checking out the Grand Rapids Web Development group!

GRWebDev Presents: Hooks and React.js

The Factory - 4th floor

DESCRIPTION The concept of hooks within JavaScript is not necessarily new, but its recent official adoption by both React and React Native have caused quite a stir. What's all the fuss about? GRWebDev's Sloth I and Learn to Code Grand Rapids' Patrick Sollars will discuss the concept of hooks and lead us through a live coding session to contrast React's historical class-based component structure with that of the hooks-based functional component structure. BIOS Sloth is a custom web and mobile developer in Grand Rapids. He is heavily involved in the local tech community and volunteers his time with Code for Good West Michigan, Loop Coding Center, Django Girls, and many other worthy organizations. Patrick Sollars is a software developer at Magic Wrighter Inc. He primarily works with C# microservices and builds UIs with React in JavaScript.
