Facebook’s Dev Circles empower a diverse range of technical talent to improve their skills and access the information they need.

The sold-out event at Wynbase brought together over 100 developers of varying levels to learn about React. React is a JavaScript library created by Jordan Walke, a software engineer at Facebook. Wyncode teaches React as part of its 10 week immersive course and in its new part-time Front End Web Development course.

The speakers included:

Chris Stegner of MadDev, who was selected Technology Entrepreneur of the Year by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and has hired a Wyncoder Developer, spoke about why his firm uses Reac

Adrian Martin of CareCloud, who have hired 13 Wyncode Developers, presented React JS basics

* Wyncode’s own Ed Toro live coded how to add React into an existing software stack using Rails as an example
