ReactFoo in Delhi & Bangalore!

Updates on ReactFoo, CFPs for JSFoo & Meta Refresh and more this week on The HasGeek Newsletter 💌

ReactFoo Mumbai

After more than two months of preparation, the Mumbai edition of ReactFoo took place last Saturday, 26 May, at ISDI. We had 18 speakers, and 120 participants at the event.

Participants appreciated Arwa Lokhandwala’s talk on “Why we should use React Canvas”. Other well received talks included Ritesh Kumar’s talk on the development flow with React Native and Kiran Abburi’s case study on migrating from Redux to Apollo.
The Birds Of Feather (BOF) sessions on state management and how to grow your career as a front-end engineer in 2018 were well attended too. Here, participants had an opportunity to ask questions, share their experiences and engage in a focussed discussion with others interested in the same topic. We’ll publish summaries of these two sessions on the ReactFoo blog by next week.

ReactFoo Mumbai was a collaborative effort between ReactFoo speaker alumni and HasGeek. We’d especially like to thank Preeti Wadhwani and Manjula Dube for reaching out and mentoring women speakers; Preeti Wadhwani and Nitish Phanse for spearheading engagement at the conference; and Ankita Goyal, Preeti Wadhwani, Subramanya Chakravarthy, Nitish Phanse and the alumni members for mentoring speakers. 
We received an enthusiastic response from Mumbai, and are looking forward to hosting more events in the city.
