Why send your team to ReactConf AU
ReactConf AU is a two day conference happening in Sydney at the end of February.
It’s the largest gathering of React web developers to ever take place in the southern hemisphere.
The ReactConf AU speakers are from some of the world’s most influential tech companies including Netflix, Wix, GitHub, BBC and Deloitte.
These leaders, developers and designers, from across the country and globe, will inspire and teach your staff in an encouraging environment that is all about professional development.
Indeed, at ReactConf AU, your staff will learn real, practical and performance skills they can bring back to your organisation, products and workflows.
It is wise to ensure your employees have access to the React web developer community because it might just be the most supportive professional network in Australia. That’s not hyperbole. The React community genuinely cares about sharing skills and knowledge. They have a strong culture of helping others in their profession, no matter their career level.
