📟 React Hooks and the Fetch API
by Jaime Febres

React hooks provide a nice way to separate a component state and effects.

When it comes to fetching data from an HTTP endpoint, there are a few gotchas you need to take into account in order to avoid unexpected bugs.

In this talk, you'll learn how to use them to safely retrieve data from an external HTTP endpoint

👩‍🎤 Redux is dead, long live Redux
by Julian Burr

With context, suspense, hooks and all that other new cool stuff going on, more and more people seem to believe that Redux is finally dead. I'd try to show in this talk why this is not the case, what all these different features and patterns are actually useful for and how to pick the best solution for your problem.

💃 T H E V I B E

Come and listen to some quality speakers, network with other frontend devs, and chat about all the cool things going on in the React ecosystem.

As always, the meetup is great for both newbies & veterans alike. There's free beers & pizza provided. Talks start at 6:30. Feel free to arrive any time after 6:00.

The vibes are good.

There will be good vibes.
