Atlanta JavaScript Meetup

I guess I'd never really thought about it. Would you consider JavaScript to be Open Source? Well, Firefox supports it and Firefox is Open Source. Most of the Javascript libraries out there (JQuery, Moo, Prototype, etc) are open source. Even the EXT JS library has a GPL v3 version. So I guess I'll have to say that it's open. Anyway, there's a new JavaScript meetup forming. At the moment they haven't decided on a place to meet, and their charter is a bit thin: Meet other local JavaScripters to share knowledge, to review the state of the art, or to dream up new applications. But follow along, sign up and be there! See: The Atlanta JavaScript Meetup Page.

    Hello JS'ers! We are taking a roadtrip to the React ATL Meetup. This is a regular monthly meeting at React ATL held at General Assembly.

    Are you looking for ways to write less verbose React code? Higher-order components and render props are two primary ways to share behavior across React components. This talk will cover these two concepts; when and why you might use them in a project, and why you might prefer one over the other.

    Daniel is a former lawyer who is enamored with code. These days he's a freelance developer and erstwhile startup founder. He wrote React before there was Redux.

    Food and drinks are provided!

    New to React? Check out ATL-JS's Intro to React workshop, given by React ATL's Taggart Bowen-Gaddy the week before:
