👋 Kristian from Bytesized Code here – super excited to announce the first set of speakers for Byteconf React, a free live-streamed React conference, taking place on May 1st, 2020!
Real quick, if you haven't heard of Byteconf ✋ it's a free developer conference series, live-streamed on YouTube 🍿
Since 2017, five Byteconfs have gone live to people around the world:
- 🆕 Byteconf GraphQL, our most recent conf, this past January
- ⚛️ Byteconf React 2018
- 📱 Byteconf React Native
- 🧠 Byteconf ReasonML (we dig doing mini-confs for new, cool stuff too 😎)
💬 Byteconf React will go live on May 1st. While the talks premiere, many of our speakers will join us in the live chat for the conference – it's an awesome twist on the conference format that allows speakers to give more context to their talks, and to allow conference attendees to ask questions directly and immediately to speakers.
With today's announcement of our first set of speakers, the conference is getting into gear! If you want to attend, go to our website and RSVP for your free ticket – we'll send you an email when the conference goes live, so you won't miss it.
We're super excited to work with our first set of speakers for Byteconf React: Kent C. Dodds, Ali Spittel, and Shawn Wang! Learn more about them below, and make sure to follow them on Twitter 🐦 For more announcements and updates on the conference, make sure to follow our account, @bytesizedcode, as well!
