Manchester React User Group

Tuesday 4th July, 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:

With styled-components into the future

by Phil Plückthun, Formidable Labs

This month we’re stepping into the world of CSS in JS, and we’re lucky to have Phil take us through the styled-components v3, a future release of the beloved open-source library.

Styled-components chose to go with a runtime-only setup to support create-react-app and similar environments. Now that it’s taken the React world by storm, what if we enhanced it a little bit at build-time? How optimised can can we make it?”

Phil has been a core contributor on styled-components since January, and now works at Formidable Labs in London.
