Introducing ReactRI: Web Development Meetup

December 30, 2019

I’m proud to announce the launch of ReactRI — a meetup for Providence and Rhode Island-based web developers and designers. We’ll get together once a month to learn about web development, React.js, and each other, all over free pizza and beer.

You can sign up here.

If you want to give a talk, please shoot me a note. We’re currently looking for speakers!

CoLab event space


We’re going to keep it short and sweet, with some good info packed away in the talks and time after to socialize with the other website-producing humans in the local area.

  • 6:00pm: Meet & greet (a.k.a. stuff your face with free food time)
  • 6:30pm: Main presentation
  • 7:00pm: Lightning talks covering a range of topics
  • 7:30pm: Networking

Stuff we talk about:

Our topics list includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • React.js
  • Front-end JavaScript (libraries, techniques, etc.)
  • UI / UX
  • Design systems
  • Functional programming
  • Working as a web developer
  • SaaS development

If you’d like to give a talk around one of these subjects or have another idea for a talk, please let me know! We are currently accepting speakers.

Where and when?

We’re going to be meeting at CoLab in Pawtuxet Village in Warwick, RI. Our first meeting will be January 8th, and we will meet monthly for our first semester.

Looking forwarding to seeing you there! Again, you can register here.
