Aircto has been helping recruiters in their technical hiring, and Front-end developers has been one of the major hires. It is obvious too because job opportunities and the number of programmers taking interest in front-end development is taking off progressively.
Consequently, we planned to have a ReactJS meetup at our office in Bangalore where Front-end technology enthusiasts can gather together under a roof and discuss about problems, techniques, strategies and best practices related to ReactJS.
We put in lots of efforts in organizing the whole event. Our whole tech team was involved to make sure the event should go smoothly. We strongly believe that giving back to community is as important as being the part of it.
So it was 13th Bangalore ReactJS meetup, and we are proud to host it at our work space. There were 30-35 guests who were from different startups, tech companies, and some of them were freelancers and front-end enthusiast.
Guests engaging in knowledge sharing
Event was initiated by Mr. Kiran Abburi, who is also the organiser of this event. He talked about interesting things on building apps with React and Redux, which is a library to maintain the application state.

The second session was taken by Mr. Yatharth Khatri, our lead front-end developer, where he talked about intriguing topic on testing React components. Questions and queries were fired from all directions, but he answered them the same way Neo dodge bullets in Matrix.
In-between the two session, everyone engaged in discussion over frameworks and all noetic talks on latest technology. All this while they enjoyed sipping coffee and nibble on sandwiches. We intend to do more of these for various other technology stack in future.
Suffice to say, every part of the meetup was awe-inspiring and epitome of this beautiful quote by Benjamin Franklin, "An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest."
