GraphQL and React Hooks Workshop and Mixer
Join us for free learning, food, drinks, and networking as we walk through the concepts of, and build an app with, React Hooks and GraphQL.
About this Event
As web developers we are notorious for always chasing the newest, shiniest toy, but don’t be fooled – GraphQL and React Hooks are here to stay!
The ISO/IEC just established a GQL (GraphQL) spec (the last time ISO created a totally new database spec was SQL, back in 1987!) and an ever-increasing number of React libraries are now using hooks, so what better time than the present to learn about these exciting new tools?
Join us as we explain the core concepts behind React Hooks and GraphQL, and then apply our fancy new knowledge to build an app in a code-along workshop.
We’ll provide food, drinks (including beer!), an opportunity to network, and plenty of useful information – all you need is a willingness to learn and your laptop, with Node already installed.
We are hosting this event as a partner of DeveloperWeek, but that doesn’t mean you have to buy a ticket to DeveloperWeek to attend – this event is open to everyone so feel free to join us!
6-6:30 – networking, with drinks (including beer!) and heavy hors d’oeuvres
6:30-8:30 – workshop
8:30-9 – networking, Q&A
