WOrkshops

We're excited to continue to offer a collection of workshops on the Thursday before the conference event. Workshops are typically 1/2 day events starting in the morning or afternoon. Below is our first confirmed workshop. More to be announced soon! Register here.

Building Front-End Applications, Rapidly

In this workshop, you'll learn how to build modern web applications using React. We'll start by getting your first React application off the ground using Facebook's create-react-app before moving on to how to build and test React components. By the end of the workshop, you'll have acquired front-end development skills and learned some best practices for structuring your React projects.
