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.
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)
We're busy planning Meetup #2. Save the date! Detail to come shortly.
Our first speaker is Alex Castillo. Alex is a Co-founder at Neurosity, a developer expert at Google, and formerly a software engineer at Netflix. He is passionate about the human brain, and how we can use it to power next-generation apps.
Title: Thought Computing
There is an evolution taking place in how humans interact with their computing devices. In 1985 when Apple introduced the Macintosh, consumers began using a mouse instead of only their keyboards to interact with their personal computers. Today, where would we be without a mouse, trackpad or touchscreen? We are on a path, and at Neurosity, we are working on the next logical step; interacting with our devices through our minds.
