📟 Using Bluetooth in React Native
by Christopher Biggs, the host of Brisbane Internet of Things Meetup

So you have a bluetooth sensor and a thermostat, door lock or garden sensor, and you want to control it from your app... But you'd prefer to stay in React!

We'll look at some examples of how to do this and how to explore bluetooth low energy devices in general.

👩‍🎤 JSX Pragma for Utility CSS-in-JS
by Jordan Overbye, Engineer at Thinkmill

Utility-first CSS frameworks like Tailwind, Tachyon and turretcss offer incredible advantages for building out web applications.

But is there a way we can use them more efficiently in React?... YUP!

Mr Overbye introduces us to "custom JSX pragmas" as he shows us how to use these modern frameworks with modern CSS-in-JS syntax.
