Chemical engineer turned web dev in ruby/rails/js/html5, foodie and what have you. http://react-europe.org
What I like the most about React is the community, and I wouldn’t want more than meeting all these people, sharing the experience and ideas. And, of course, visiting Paris is another dream which fits well together.
I expect to meet a bunch of amazing people and learn lots of new things. Last years conference had me inspired and itching with all these new ideas, so I can’t wait for this year!
