Byteconf React Speakers: Round One

With Byteconf React coming at the end of August, the time has come to start giving some details about what‘s planned for the conference. Community is hugely important to Byteconf, but speakers are a vital part of the conference, too.

We’re still accepting submissions to our Call for Papers, but we’re excited to announce the first round of speakers for Byteconf React –– each speaker was requested numerous times by developers in our community, and I’m absolutely thrilled to have them speaking at the conference.

So without further ado, meet the first set of speakers at Byteconf React!
