Last meetup of 2016! Tune hosts Seattle React.js

Tune will host us for our last meetup of 2016 for another set of React.js talks. As always, expect some delicious food from the Tune kitchens, and some great company from the Seattle dev community.

They're also hiring for front end devs, and use React and React Native extensively. Interested?: https://jobs.lever.co/tune/f0fdf99a-3749-4a31-b3e2-cb57703061f4

Also, as we leave 2016 and enter into 2017, we'd like to get feedback from the React.js community as to what type of talks and activities you'd like to see more of in 2017. Reach out to us via meetup.com, or talk to us at the event!

More talks TBD! Check back for updates.

    Used Angular for our MVP, and considering switching to React. Looking to learn more and meet folks who might want to collaborate on the startup.

    Is the meetup good for a newbie considering I have a little experience with AngularJS?

    Is there anyone attending who is familiar with connecting React to various Backends? I.E Rails, Django, ASP.Net or MongoDB/Express. I've been building a lot of small demos in React but this last step is alluding me...

      Sure, you have lots of options, but IMHO they boil down to an XHR call or a websocket :) There are really nice libraries that abstract away the frustrating bits of both XHR and websockets. For XHR, there's isomorphic-fetch, for websockets I'd go with socket.io, both are on NPM.

      I've been using Meteor with React and I've found it extremely good for building quite complex scenarios with little code. It naturally supports a 'flow' architecture without all the boilerplate you'd otherwise need. It also simplifies build massively. The only downside is that you will have to be careful on design if you plan to scale to heavy loads, but it is possible.. but if scaling isn't an immediate concern, I've found it to be a really nice combination. I can demo a pretty complex project I'm working on that uses Meteor+React.
