About this event

GDG Toledo Welcomes Ryan Lanciaux! 

React has been on your radar for some time but you don't know the best way to dive in to the ecosystem. There are so many awesome libraries but it's hard to distinguish between what's necessary and what's addressing a pain-point you don't yet have.

In this talk, we will consider some strategies for learning React and some of React's core principles. From there, we will discuss how taking a component-based view of our front-end can help us build an application architecture that scales over time. Finally, we'll examine some important libraries in the React ecosystem and what problems they are working to solve.

Ryan Lanciaux is a professional software developer in Ann Arbor, MI. Although he programs in several languages, his current area of focus is front-end development. Ryan attempts to contribute to the development community through his (often neglected) blog.

We're teaming up with CocoaHeads this month!
