Manchester React User Group

Tuesday 1st August, 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: Intro to ReasonML

by Marcel Cutts

We’re chuffed to have Marcel with us for our next event. He’ll be taking us through one of the hottest syntaxes, ReasonML, which was developed by the inventor of React himself.

Have you ever had a fever dream about running OCaml in your browser? Well never fear, ReasonML is here to solve this life halting critical problem. In this patchwork ramble we’ll tackle core questions like:

• What actually is ReasonML?

• How does it relate to our beloved JavaScript?

• What does it offer to my React project?

• How would I even get started?

And more! So join me in surfing the hype wave and grok ReasonML.

**Note — please RSVP to ensure a seat.**

Lightning talks:

• Garry Taylor will be taking us various options for unit testingwith React.

• Want to do a 10-15 minute lightning talk? Reach out on Twitter (@mancreact)
