How Hosting React Meetups Became a Two-Day Conference

Wayfair Engineering is excited to host and organize the first react.js conference in New England on September 23-24, 2017 here at our headquarters in Boston’s Back Bay.

Over the last year we’ve partnered with ReactJS Boston, the local react user group, to sponsor and host react meetup events nearly every month. With more than 100 attendees at most of these meetups, we quickly realized that there was a strong, and growing react community here in Boston. We started talking with the ReactJS Boston organizers and decided we should launch a react conference right here in Boston.

We’re very excited to have put together an awesome lineup of speakers, and we’re looking forward to welcoming developers of all backgrounds to join us for a weekend of high-quality content and great conversations with others in the react community.
