It’s time for our next Mobile Developers meetup with talks on calming deployment and what you can learn from building a React Native game.
Doors open at 6 and we’ll start the talks around 6:30pm. Food and drinks (including non-alcoholic) will be provided.
We are always looking for 20-30 minute technical talks (and shorter 5-8 minute talks) related to mobile development. That’s a pretty broad topic so feel free to be creative. First time speakers are encouraged. You can reach out to the organizers or fill in a proposal at https://www.papercall.io/sf-mobile-developers.
Talk #1: Release Management: Deployment Chaos to Clockwork
Description: Perhaps your team’s product or startup has started hitting heavy growth, and your current shoot-from-the-hip method of shipping change & managing production incidents simply isn’t scaling. Or perhaps your product has been in existence for years, with large, long-tenured customers averse to change- but your engineers drowning in antiquated process in desperate need of an overhaul. Either way, the process of deployment & quality of releases are “generally bad” for both your customers and engineering. How do you break “generally bad” down to actionable items your company can address to measurably improve the deployment process?

Talk #2: Building a Realtime Multiplayer Game in React Native
Description: As a newbie to React Native, I will talk about my personal experience working on a realtime tic tac toe game in React Native and the challenges I faced in the process. I will go over the components of the app and do a live demo of the game.
