React Meetup Online - August

Introducing our first online React meetup...

Join us for React-specific talks every month in the comfort of your own home -- where ever you are in the world! 

This month, our featured speakers are...

Kent C. Dodds - Creator of TestingJavaScript.com / Instructor, egghead.io & Frontend Masters
"React Hook Pitfalls"
The hooks honeymoon phase is over. We were able to overlook our confusion as a reasonable familiarity issue, but now it’s time to get real about the pitfalls of React Hooks. Hooks lead to a better user experience and fewer bugs for sure, but without the right foundational understanding of them and certain JavaScript semantics, we’ll probably cause other problems in the process of using hooks.

In this talk, we’ll explore some of the gotchas of using hooks, why those things are problems, and how to think about hooks so we develop an intuition for how to use hooks while avoiding the pitfalls.

Tae'lur Alexis - CEO & Front-End Engineer, CodeEveryday.io

"Building accessible UI with React"

If you browse web applications today, you'll often find issues that are found in modern web applications and lack of empathy for disabled users. You may be unaware or uncertain on how to go about implementing accessibility into your code. In my presentation, I'll provide solutions to those issues that can quickly be implemented and show a simple and efficient example of making your React application more accessible!
