What we're about

There's a new kind of React JS Meetup in town! Want a React meetup by the community, for the community? Want a React meetup that's open, welcoming, and inclusive to everyone? Guys, gals, non-binary, whomever? Want a React meetup that's nonjudgemental, no matter your experience level? Whatever you identify as, you're welcome at useReact. New York City's newest React Meetup.

And… We do have a Code of Conduct (https://usereact.nyc#coc) to gently remind everyone what is expected.

We'll have talks from some of the industry's foremost experts in React. We'll also have folks new to React share their learning experience.

Talks are great, but we're also doing something a bit different from your average tech meetup. We're having plenty of 1:1 breakout time with the presenters. No scripts, just answering your questions in a casual mingle about format.

(Psst... oh, and as the name implies, we'll do a fair amount of talking about Hooks)

Abstract: What would possess someone to spend their evenings and weekends working on a UI framework when they could just wait for Facebook to do it for them? Fame? Money?
