Manchester React User Group

Tuesday 2nd May, 7:00pm

The Manchester React User Group is an opportunity for React.js developers to get together and discuss the latest in the world of the popular JavaScript UI library, its ecosystem, along with other similar libraries.

Meetups will be taking place on the first Tuesday of each month. In the past, they’ve had people in to discuss the likes of React Native, Redux and Elm. They also have a “notable changes” introduction to each event, helping attendees stay up-to-date with React libraries.

Manchester React is organised by Strobe Digital, who will provide pizzas and beers for each event. To keep track of the latest, make sure to become a member of our Meetup group and follow the group on Twitter.

This Month: Migrating from Angular to React: A tale from the trenches

by Jack Franklin, Songkick

Jack will discuss moving a very large, business critical ticketing platform from Angular 1 to React. He’ll talk about the reasons why and the practicalities of an incremental migration, along with some code examples.

This is no theoretical talk — they’re several weeks into the project, and have 30,000 lines of Angular code to deal with, which sees a substantial amount of revenue go through it every week. This talk will dive into the nitty gritty, both the good and the bad, and should give you a great insight into migrating codebases without a huge, big-bang release.
